We have a herd of 8-10 does who visit the barn, graze in the pasture, every late afternoon, the horses love to watch them!
10-9-10 I did manage to hit my first deer ever, a 200lb. 10 point buck, going 55 down a highway in the dark, needless to say, I had to call the sheriff's office, the poor boy had to be euthanized. The Deputy was shaking his head, as he asked me "If I knew how long he had been looking for one of these? and I go and find it in the middle of a highway'. I told him "I much rather he had found him"
I was being rather proud of myself, living in Iowa, in the country, all these years and never hitting a deer.
I love wildlife(excludes:ticks, mosquitos, no-see-ums, and snakes) and nature and the out-of -doors, yet have zero desire to go camping. Go figure.
