....how close my hunting rifle is! We have had a small group of Mulies on the property since late spring, one Buck, two young boys, two does and three fawns. This young buck was born just a few yards away the Spring before that. He had one antler that was growing straight foreword and against his muzzle that I see has fallen off in the last week or so. They are nice to have around but they attract the big cats.

I can practically walk up and pet mine. I yell at them and they do not care. HAve to shoot them with the airsoft. I hate them, they eat my trees.

Think of them as meat you don't have to refrigerate.

I come home in the dark, after hunting all day, and there's deer standing in my yard - eating the grass. They just stand and stare...

I hate them too - they nip the top buds of my little white pine. The trees then grow abnormally as a secondary branch becomes the 'leader'. That tree is then, and forever, damaged and weakened.

I try to protect the smaller white pine with these - see below. I put them over the top branches - when the top of the tree is high enough to escape the deer I quit protecting them. The deer will still nip the buds off of the branches - but the top survives and the tree will develop normally.

Here's the product I use...

we like having them around. Except for some wild and potted flowers here in the high desert our yards are zero-scape with Juniper trees. They munch the flowers but they grow back as fast as they get eaten.

Though if it were me... I'd take this one, with the bow, from the bedroom window. [/clue]

They eat everything I plant yet leave the weeds.

One ran into the side of my car 2 years ago leaving a shallow dent and one ran in front of my car wrecking the front end.

I've killed three with my current car. One ran into the side - like yours.

I hit the other two. I was going slow enough that one did no damage (a little crease in the hood). The other broke the headlight/signal assembly - $140 used from a junk yard.

It pays to slow down in deer country.

For the past three years I have had whitetails on my property. Every year I get to see the new additions grow up and some stay, most leave. But they play with my dogs, hang out in the yard and even eat some of my garden. I would never think of shooting them (unless starving or something). I get too much enjoyment out of seeing them daily and interacting with them. Just last Thursday night one of the Doe's was about 8-10 ft from my mailbox in the evening when I walked down to get the mail. She just stood there and looked at me, even took a step towards me. I can get with in touching distance of the adults, but can't raise my hands without startling them. The babies, can usually get them to let me pet them if I have a treat.

I shot one from the kitchen door of a friend at the end of what would have been an otherwise miserable season... 100 yrds.

I once came out of the workshop door on the side of my old house to go use the bathroom and startled one that was standing right outside the door but he more than returned the favor. They tend to reflexively mule kick in the direction of what spooks them. He kicked the door into my knee pretty hard knocking me back into the shop where I landed in a salt spreader and got a salty spike in the butt. It literally scared a little piss out of me and just for fun he knocked my AC condenser over breaking the lines loose and spewing a freon cloud. Quite the chaotic scene. They can be real pains in the butt sometimes.

A tetanus booster and a week in a knee brace later I was good as new.
