Didn't have the camera handy, but 3 deer just went across the neighbors yard not 100 yards from me! They were young ones, but something you don't see often!

Around where I live you see 15 or more sometimes!

I see them out a ways (quarter mile) quite often. But I also live in a populated area. To see them moving at this time of day is very unusual!

   I was on my way home tonite and saw at least 10 in a field, I see large herds around here all the time.  I suppose if you don't see them allot they are nice to see, I sort of take them for granted as they are all over the place here.  Last fall I took my daughter hunting for the first time, we sat on the edge of a small clearing and watched a herd of does probably 15 strong graze for 30 min at least.  It was cool.

They are fun to watch. As long as they aren't a problem in tearing up the yards and gardens.

I live in Atlanta GA and I see as many as four deer at a time fairly regularly, sometimes in the middle of the day.  Not even planning on a garden this year.  Last year they ate everything I planted except squash.

the only good deer are the dead ones!! We have herds of them all the time here, always in a different place while driving to work. Last yr I was still working nites and I hit several of them coming home. Their a dang nuisance and a hazard to all drivers on the road.  I was hoping the wasting dieses would kill more of them during the fall and winter. All those who would like them come take as many as you can handle.

I just came in from the shop and shined my LED light in the field.  I could see all sorts of pretty eyeballs.  I told them to leave my truck alone next time I go for a drive.

 

Around here, deer whistles are mandatory unless you like straightening your hood once a week.

I drive home from work 30km at 2am here and we have alot of mule deer, pretty sure those whisltles saved a few of them one night when I came up on a small herd crossing the highway, several of them seemed to stop and just look at the truck as I went thru the herd without hitting a single animal, and it was icy that night, not much I could have done to avoid them.  We live on an old farmstead so we have to chase them out of the garden sometimes, but then hunting season opens;) .

We've got them here right in the back yard. They are no longer afraid of people. My wife was gardening the other day and looked up to find a couple of year old does within 20ft of her, eating some leaves off of the shrubs at the edge of the yard. They didn't move on when she approached them until she was within 10 ft. It's not right for them to be so bold. I think some people may be feeding them.

Here's a pic of where they went through. They were in the yard of the house in the center of the pic about where the top rail of the gates goes across.
