When I took poor old Oliver for walks in the forest Tigger would follow us!
We cannot tell most of our deer apart, except for their behaviour.
There was a group of seven, with a mom who made sure her twins ate first, then the other four were allowed at the feed.
|Isn't he handsome!|
We didn't know he was a he until he visited later.
|He was fascinated with Oliver.|
|Here he was, his sibling was a ways behind Tigger.|
This was November, 2010.
|Tigger had a wound at one point.|
Probably from some wire fencing
|And then I spotted him in the grass.|
He really surprised me!
|He has grown some, |
and now we know he is a he!
He bounced and he approached us for food.
Most of them are quite cautious around us.
The neighbouring 35 acre property is uninhabited, and is used as a part-time hunting area.
I've posted many signs on our perimeter, forbidding hunting on our land.
|Here is the only other male I've seen.|
Most are on the other side of the highway.
|Handsome fellow, our Tigger!|
The males stick together, as do the females. We seldom see males around here. The more darkly coloured buck was the one I spotted last year. Haven't seen him since!
|The ladies line up behind him.|
What are they staring at?
Felix, hunting birds!
|I'm pretty sure this is him!|
We only seem to have females around.
