Poor Chad! He’s spending every spare minute in the woods trying to get a deer. He was with his friend hunting Wednesday morning and his friend got one. This is my backyard yesterday. I left the deck railing in the picture so you can see how close they are to my house. There were 11 of them but I was taking the picture through the glass because they’re so darned spooky. Smack dab in the middle of deer season and I guess I’d be spooky too.
I was trying to zoom and my lens hit the glass and they heard me. A few of them ran off but a few of them stayed.
Earlier in the week, I saw a doe prancing across the back yard. Then I looked up and saw a huge buck . . I quickly counted at least 12 points. He was kinda skipping across the back yard, stopping to grab a bite every few steps. I grabbed the camera and ran downstairs, hoping to sneak out and get a picture but he must’ve moved on quickly. I was telling Chad about it and I could tell he didn’t really believe me. But, yesterday Chad was coming home and he still had the garage door open and a pick up was driving by real slowly looking towards the house. Chad walked out to ask him if he needed something and the guy said he just saw at least a 12 point buck casually walking behind our house and he wanted to try to get a picture of him but they couldn’t find him again.
I hope these deer know how lucky they are to be living inside the city limits where there’s no shooting of any kind allowed. And, they’d better appreciate that I’m such a law abiding citizen and have threatened to call the police if Chad shoots one in my back yard with his bow and arrow!
