I have a fondness for them. Once when I was out with my dog, a couple of them stayed close, not afraid and watched the frisbee as it flew through the air.

My dog knew if the deer didn't run, she wouldn't chase them.
I love deer for their intelligence and gracefulness, and would have no wish to hunt them down or kill them.
But I have never been in the position of maybe having to, for survival.
Blessings to the deer. To me they are of grace and wildness.
that's a funny story! Where I live the white tailed deer are plentiful. Winter's here are harsh and if over populated many often die of starvation during the winter months. There's a sickness many deer can get too if over populated. It's called cwd. Its a parsite that eats there brains. Hunting is just a way to manage the population and keep them healthy. Responsible hunters never waste and are very thankful of the meat it provides for there families.
