We see them a lot too. I use to tell my wife &kids how mean they can be. We were walking our woods one time to show them a wooden foot bridge I had just finished across a small creek. A doe came out on the middle of the bridge challenging us by snorting & stomping on the bridge. They ran & I started yelling at the doe & she ran off. I'm sure she had a fawn near by but the family no longer thinks their all Bambi.

My daughter lives on Deer lake in Boyne Fall, Mi and the deer in the photo is about 20' from her picture window, the Eagle is about 100 feet out.  They have had as many as 20 deer walk right up and eat the grass and flowers under the window. My two year old granddaughter will put her hand on the window and the deer will come right up to the glass and try to smell her hand. 

 

The long and cold winter must have made the deer desperate for food.

I'm kind of out in country and have woods all around the house so we get deer in our yard quite regularly.  I can usually tell when they are around because the dogs go crazy.  I guess the deer know the dogs are in a fenced in yard so they don't pay any attention to them.  In her younger years the Shepard could clear the fence and did on a few occasions.

I got you one Kenny, I was at the house 3 months ago and see something in the back yard that looks like a big black dog so I open the back door to yell at it to get the heck out of here and realize it is a damn wild pig routing thru the leaves.

 

I ran to grab one of my rifles and by the time I get back he is already at full alert and when I open the door it takes off.

 

 

Many years ago my brother and I were sitting in some lawn chairs with my mother in front of her house just as the sun set.  Her dogs(rotts) all of a sudden went nuts and ran to the fence, we can see something on the other side of the fence and then see it jump over the fence on our side and the rotts come racing back towards the house right past us with this big black thing in tow, when it gets to the edge of the light from the yard light we realize its a dadgum black bear, mom screams "BEAR!!!!!" and we all three hit the sliding glass door at the same time trying to get inside :D

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.

It's that new Suburbia Deer I've been hearing about.
Neat to see an animal someplace unusual. Unless its 3' in front of you bumper at 55mph.

I hit several of them coming home.

 

How do you know they were going home?  They might of been going to out for dinner?  :poke:

 

I have hit so many deer in the last 14 years its not funny.  I worked midnights for a couple years and I hit 9 in 2 years.  I hit one about a month ago.  I slammed on my brakes, clipped him and he stumbled off the side of the road.  LUCKY for me no damage to my car.

 

I hate deer.

Funny thing on my way in this morning (5:05 am), I was thinking about this thread as left the house. I put wipers on to clear the dew, and their was a doe and a new fawn in the road. The fawn must have been only a few days old, was about the size of a cat. As it turned and ran back it tripped on the curb it was so small. Haven't seen one that small before. Sorry no pics

We sure have plenty and sometimes they'll stamp their legs if the corn is gone. We fenced off a small lawn in the back and even though the double gate is always open, they have never entered the fenced area.

On deer whistlers, a lot of people say they don't really work but we've seen critters turn away so I feel they must do something. It pays to look at them occasionally though since I've pried/blown dead bugs and stuff out of ours on occasion.
