  • There's a doe (we think pregnant) running around the Hickory/Collier/Kingwood areas. She's been here since before Halloween.

  • They made have decided it was safer in town than out where hunters can get them right now.

    We are used to seeing them, (had three in the yard this morning) but a herd came by while I was on the tractor this weekend and came close as if they were not concerned.

    They were right not to be since we made a pact when we first moved in. They don't bother my garden and I don't let hunters on our property.

    Strange, but it has worked. They graze all around the front yard but except for the very first year, I never saw them or their hoof prints in the garden.

  • They've had the area dogs in a tizzy but I don't think any pups have been loose to harass them.

    Judging by the bark brigade,I think they have stuck to the wooded areas along the creek beds when they come into our area.

  • Just spotted 5 in a field off Pinkston this evening. They stopped going through my field since we got the border collie. They're not fond of being herded.

  • There are deer, wild turkeys and even a fox that hang out on the Tony Rice Center property. The turkeys have also been seen up near the bowling alley.
