    When I was in Texas you could wake up during the night and typically see 3 - 9 of them sitting on the lawn and eating my plants. But they were small about the size of big dogs.. Either that or the racoons or roof rats running acroos the roof.

    Last September,a week after bagging my doe,a doe with 2 fawns,a spike,a tall lanky 3 point and a beast of a 3 point blacktail,wandered through my yard.They ran a few yards from my dogs,then just walked away.

    I'll have bait out next year.(legal in WA) Then I can concentrate on my elk.

    I had to avoid one that was crossing Hwy101, in downtown Lincoln City!
    She was coming from the ocean. Didn't know deer liked to surf!

    Based on the surroundings we could be neighbors. We have frequent visitors also. These deer are like pets as close as they let you come. We've had 7 at a time come thru on their way to water.

    The Wild Turkey, not so friendly. Pretty territorial considering it was my front yard. All in all one of the blessings of the country life.

    We feed a lot of birds here also. I've adopted a couple of wood peckers, flickers and a squirrel or two (or Ten) that I'd like to give away.

    You can discus "territories" with the turkeys over some mashed potatoes and gravy with cranberry sauce.

    you could also invite the deer to be meat-e-ators, just in case the talks dont last that long, if it is anything like thanksgiving talks with the turkeys, it'll last a week or so.

    On the other side, great pictures! I love waking up on mornings like that! enjoy!
