    I wouldn't live anywhere else that I couldn't see this on any given day. Well maybe not so much snow...
    we watch the deer from our living room window that faces the back pasture and from the front porch. i feel for those who live in the cities and don't know what they are missing....

    I lived in a suburb near a creek, the same 3 deer would wander thru the condo association. They learned to find at eat the food I put out for fuzzy tail creatures. I eventually put out a dog food bowl of food just for them. Didn't last long before neighbors complained.

    I live in the city and once in awhile a deer will run by my kitchen window. It was probably heading for the woods and a pond that are across the street from my house.

    I never thought you would shoot in your backyard, only that if they were that plentiful then the hunting around your area must be great. I imagine they get into your gardens into the summer also. I'm glad your husband doesn't hunt your deer, but do you know how large the territory is that your deer range over? I looked it up in Google and found that White Tail deer usually ranged over 1-2 square miles but have been known to travel up to 12 miles. It must be hard to be sure not to shoot your own deer.

    Hey, MC--Try stringing old vcr tapes around your garden perimeter and criss-cross the garden through the center. The tapes will "hum" and according to Mother Earth News, the noise bothers them and they will not cross the tape. Good luck. We, too have deer in our area but the dogs next door keep them at bay,

    Beautiful. Would love that view but we live in suburbs. I do love hearing the birds and neighborhood dogs barking (it's only occasional, not annoying).

    If I had that view I would get nothing done, I would set and look out the window all day. We never get snow bur even tho we live in town we still get the deer. With it so dry their food source is gone and they come into the yards and eat all our plants. My rose bushes are ones they like best.

    I love to see them in someone else's yard. They eat everything and its hard to grow plants that they will leave alone. I guess that's the price we pay for the beauty of nature

    It is a beautiful picture, they are getting fat eating that food you have supplied.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

    We have about six of them here in town and I call them our wondering yard ornaments. I enjoy them but they sure are hard on the flowers and gardens of other neighbors. Don't know why but they have left my roses alone. Must be my doorman Chuck "a blue healer"

    I'm on Long Island's south shore and believe it or not, the deer come visit my yard as well! Nature is so perfect!
