Default From the backyard

This guy spent some time in the backyard yesterday:

He was chasing his girlfriend:

He chased off two other suitors. One of them scraped one of my ornamental trees, the jerk!

I haven't a clue why they choose to use my backyard for *ahem* meetings. They should at least clean up after they're done.

The buck has a devilish look, but I like the doe !

Is it quite common to see them so close to civilization ?

You presume this area is civilized. I've lived here 15 years and I'm still "not from around here."

They either got lost, became oblivious because of their more important (to them) activities, or aren't all that bright. Might be a combo of all three.

I'd be happy to give them anybody's address if anybody wants to see them up close.

Yes, they are a nice looking animal, but they are a curse around here. They are very dangerous in rut season, there was a person who lived not that far from here that was killed by a big buck. And the stupid thing about it, was that he owned the deer. He owned over twenty of them, and he knew they were dangerous while in heat. He was feeding them when he got attacked, and most of the does were around him. They figure the buck got jealous, and then attacked.
