    Last year we had a surprise. Some one's pet doe starting coming into our yard to eat some of the fruits from the fruit trees that we have. We were afraid once hunting season started that someone would shoot her but.....

    She's back...

    Just hoping that deer can last through the season without been shot at. It's amzing how tame the animals can get. Reminds me of a time I had gone to a local Elk farm that someone I know owns. These Elk were very tame. Couldn't believe during feeding time, the Elk would come right up to you and allow you to pet them.

    Thats cool Kevin, we bottle raised several over the years, Doe's are the nicest of them all, but those buck, whoaaaaa, look out. Once they earn thier set of antlers, even just a spike they like to play an it hurts :eek:oooh::smile2: That one has a collar, we used to put orange ones on them so maybe they wouldnt get shot. was funny we had one in the house as fawn bottle feeding and it kept eyein my buck hangin on the wall. Thats gotta be an eerie feeling:eek:oooh:

    aslong as you keep her fed well, you wont have to worry about anybody shooting her, when they start to look for food and water and feel the need to cover land in search of one or the other, thats when she will end up roast or jerky. thanks for sharking the pic.

    I was working in a house several years ago. It was in a rough in stage and I was pulling wires. While I was bent over and working something came up behind me and sort of shoved me over. Startled I jumped up and spun around. It was a spike buck that wandered in an open door. he was in a playful mood and began playing with me by bumping me with his head. I finally had to push him out the door because he wouldn't leave me alone. The owners had raised him and he had the run of their property. I have a picture of him somewhere. I hope he is still around.

    Thats pretty cool. With the hunting pressure around here I don't just that collar would help much. I think I'd have to get some of that spray stuff for hair and paint her orange :smile2: .

    Is that thing scared of you at all? Like if you move too fast she runs away? Or is she that use to people that pretty much nothing scares her? that is pretty cool. I don't think i could shoot a pet deer.

    I like the way you think:wink: Cool pic. I raised one that was orphaned and boy are they fun little guys to have around. Good luck to her this fall.
