Went cross-country skiing with my youngest son earlier today, and we ran across some mule deer. It was pretty cool. They showed virtually no fear of us.

I'll have to post some images of the wife trying to chase them away from her bird feeders. When they see her come out, they run in from a quarter mile away.

One Minute:

I've done some hunting and photography work around Madras and Redmond. I can relate to your situation with the bird feeders. Nice, isn't it?

I got about that close to a doe during elk season in WY. It wasn't even looking at me. Turns out it was looking at a couple of bulls. The rare pointing muley. Just need to train them to lift a front hoof.


If you love someone set them free
If they come back no one else liked them
Set them free again

Put our big mean Norwich terrier out after about a dozen this evening. They would run around her and right back to the corn board the wife puts out for quail.

Cool pictures. Hopefully I will get to hunt a mule deer this fall.
