    Are these wild deer that let you get 10-12 feet away? If so, then lucky you! I love the expression on his face.
  3. Wildland wonders

    Yes, these are wild deer, Lisa They live in our neighborhood and raise their youngsters here year after year. It's fun to watch them, but they can devastate the garden if you plant the wrong things. Our soil isn't wonderful and water is expensive in the west, so we have a mostly native garden.

    Lets just say....

    My in-laws have a ranch where they raise those critters. Some will eat from your hand, and some try to take the whole hand. :wink:

    There is nothing like hand feeding a 7x8 bull elk.

    Thanks for the b-day wishes.
