Setting here at my desk with the windows open,Real quiet outside.Just heard a deer blowing not too far away.I love living in the woods.Thats what we call it when deer expell air out their nose ,I guess as a warning to other deer.I don;t know but they do it when they see or smell me.

The deer around the house don't blow much...........if I spoke them I hear them running off. They don't run far and stop and look at me. I sometimes take my streamlight and shine them.

Tonight I was outside packing the bearings on my big trailer and the coyotes were ripping it up. Every dog in the country was at it for back up.:biggrin:

Yeah I love living in the country.........I wouldnt last in a neighborhood......some of us outcasts just have to live away from the rest!:razz: :thumb:

Yep ,you got that right.I would'nt last a week.


My parents have a live-cam and feed the critters to watch them.I figure thats what spooked the deer.Have you ever seen *****,Fox,and possums eating together?I never thought it would happen.Then the Yotes come and they all leave.

The deer around here know me as the guy that wastes his corn....and I can pour out a pile, and walk away 100yds and look back to see them starting in on it!:razz: They do however snort and blow, but they aren't doing it as a fear thing, more of a signal....even to me. Drives my wife nuts!:thumb:

I live on the edge of forest service land but don't see deer that often. Here in a few months though I will be seeing a bear or two in the yard. (I would rather have deer)

During the summer the deer will come to my pond at all times of the day. It's one of only about three in the local area.
The deer seem to love the growth below my leach field ( I wonder why??:biggrin: ) and they will lay up in it.
Last summer I was outside building a deer stand and they just laid about 50 yards away and watched as I made all kinds of noise.

The does are safe but there are a few bucks that aren't................I think they know that cause they disappear once the velvet comes off.:smack:

I appreciate living in the country too. Don't know what I would do in town. Be like caging a wild animal. The deer cross our place too. My SIL seen 15 crossing the other evening. We see them around the pond alot too. During the breeding season we'll often times see a few turkey running through. Have seen the coyotes a time or two. We listen to them alot all around us. Ahhh...and the owls calling back and forth. We have had a black bear come in pretty close, a couple years back he wreeked havoc at the Tyson Chicken Barns not far from us. I've never seen one in the wild, but hope too, from a safe distance someday. In the last couple weeks I have noticed the sounds of the outdoors have changed dramaticaly. The spring birds are back and the frogs are singing in full force. I hope I never have to give up living out here in amongst all God's beauty.
