I don't think I have ever seen so many deer in one area before. The weird thing is they don't seem to be afraid of the guy squatting down.
Wildlife refuge maybe?
Looking at his clothing I almost want to say it could be in Europe because of the logo on his pants.
You don’t need a rifle. A baseball bat should work :)
they are not SEALS, for pete’s sake!
Finland maybe.. damn, that’s a hugh herd of deer.
Deer can lose their fear of people. I got up one morning to find a buck and doe chowing down on my wife's roses. I had to throw rocks to drive them away.
It’s a commercial deer farm (venison producer). No need for rifle or bat. They’ll prepare it for you.
Deer don’t like trudging through deep snow anymore than we do and herding up during winter is common. The less energy expended means a better chance at surviving until spring.
They eat my tulips before the blooms open!
That’s what I was thinking, maybe even Norway, but I just don’t see that many deer congregating in America when a human is that close. We enjoy venison and hunting way too much for them to feel that secure around men.
“a commercial deer farm “
Those are for real? A guy running for town administrator suggested that to get the deer out of our yards and off our streets. How high are the fences?
Park Rapids or Camp Ripley were pretty close by where I grew up, they had some good deer populations, but heck, we had nice stands of woods closeby too so we never ran out of venison.
If you look closely at the bottom of both pictures, you can see that these animals are being fed. Look at the second deer in the second picture...that’s grain.
We just bought a new home outside Chico and we have a bunch of rose bushes.
My wife loves them, but one morning we woke up and they were all gone. She was really bummed.
Then one evening she called me out side and we saw a few young bucks eating the new roses that were budding.
But the moment I stepped out they took off. No need for me to throw stones. Maybe they felt danger from my urge to feed on them.
About a week later a neighbor totaled his SUV by hitting one of the bucks on the road above our home. Bummer, If I knew he would have been dead in a week I would have shot him. But it was out of season anyway.
Yep. For real. That’s where all those nice doe skin gloves and buckskin jackets come from. Fence height would be an expensive community eyesore. Better to learn to live with ‘em in your yards.
Wow, your right.
I totally missed that.
So maybe it is a farm, you think?
I got these pics in an email yesterday. If you look at the second pic, you can see that almost all of them are chowing down. I know of one feeding station in the Valley Park, where large herds come in to feed. This seems like it might be a commercial enterprise.
Yea, that’s what PowderMonkey pointed out. Thank.
I still wish I had a rifle sitting in the woods waiting for their cook to leave.
AHHH, for the days long gone.
Shot your neighbor or the deer?
We live in a semi-rural area where hunting is not allowed, so these deer are never hunted (by humans).
