Deer hunting season is over

Huntingover-2.JPG

Now that the echo of guns has died away in nearby forests, we are seeing deer by daylight again. During the last few weeks, they have been careful to visit only during the hours of darkness.

These two were just part of the herd that came through on this cold morning. Although you can’t see it very well in the photo, the deer on the left had long hair like a burro and its tail looked like a fat brush.

The sun was out, but the temperature was only 28 degrees.
Their visit made a nice start to my day.

    home fresh kill bones………life……..

    I’m terribly jealous …. I see few deer and none in my urban neighbourhood. I love watching and feeding the squirrels and birds, but it’s just not the same. They are so beautiful!

    A few years back we moved up north, out of the cities. Our first spring there brought many newcomers, mostly 4-legged. One early June morning I heard a sound that, as a city dweller, I couldn’t identify. I tiptoed out to the livingroom and peered out the big windows. Standing along side my chevy wagon was a fawn, busily sniffing the car, the lampole, and the Honda scooter. The next several years gave us “gifts” of critter visits.

    That’s pretty cold. I remember at an old house of mine deer hung out in the corn field behind my house.
