What’s Up

September 22, 2017

This doe (I think) was checking me out yesterday morning on my walk. My guess is she was wondering if I had food. Some of the neighbors feed them.

Ears

July 21, 2017

Saw this little guy (stands about 3 ft.) on the grounds of the Moolah Temple as I drove by in my Model A. I hope it grows into those ears.

Yesterday by the Pool

June 6, 2017

I Saw this little guy yesterday by the pool. Yesterday was a warm day hitting a high of 92 degrees and I think he/she was just trying to stay cool. I saw no mom around so I made some calls. First to the wild life folks in the county and got no answer. Next to some friends who are deer experts (they have had 17 in their yard all at the same time) and they have experienced the same phenomenon: tiny deer but no mom and were assured by the wild life authorities if left alone mom will return.

These Youngsters Like our Grass

November 23, 2015

I came home late recently and my motion light popped on. I thought it might be a dog or perhaps something scarier so I eased over to the window to find it was a young 4 point buck in my yard scarfing up some tender grass shoots from some seeds I planted earlier in the month. I like having them around but some neighbors do not.

The Price of Deer

August 28, 2015

Readers of this blog probably have seen some of my deer photos; we have many in our area. I admit I like to see them but there is a price to pay besides the vegetation they devour. Below is a car I saw on a trip to the library this week. The driver told me he hit the deer on Fee Fee road close to my house and it is a 40 MPH zone. Obviously there is a monetary loss but other thoughts occurred to me. What if the deer had hit the driver’s side and what if I had hit one while I rode a motorcycle for three years in the area; not fun thoughts.

Who Dat?

August 22, 2015

These guys were right in my path Thursday morning. They let me get pretty close before bolting which is kind of unusual for such young deer. Some of the older neighborhood deer that are hand fed by humans are not so skittish but many of the young ones have no experience with humans.

Grave Flowers Devoured

July 17, 2015

In about a week I am supposed to lead a procession of our Model A’s through the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. To get familiar with the route I recently visited the site only to find I was not alone. A hungry deer was helping herself to the grave flowers perhaps not an awful waste of flowers after the grave ceremony is over.
