  • Maybe he was giving you a taste of how it feels to them to be hunted and ran after. lol

  • I came home this afternoon & pushed the button to open the garage door. As I unlocked the car door & took off my seat belt, I pushed the remote to open the car trunk. As I was walking to the back of the car, I noticed 4 deer behind the house in the edge of the trees. They were quietly watching me. I unloaded the trunk of the car. Several bags contained tins, which created a great deal of noise as I moved them around & found a spot for them in the garage. I took the last bags out of the trunk & closed it. Then I turned to go into the house. However, I didn't go inside. I went back to check on the deer, and they were gone.

    Now I would have figured the sound of the car, the noise of the garage door opening, or the loud clattering of the tins would have scared the deer away. My husband said that regardless of the noise, as long as they could see me, they were OK. Once I went out of their sight, they ran.

    Deer are strange but beautiful creatures.

    Not only do you need deer whistles on your car, you need them as antlers.

  • I had a similar incident...I noticed the deer about 6 feet off the path...about 5 of them. I just kept my eyes forward and ran on by without incident.
