Default Bucking Around

A friend of mine at work told me a story of his friend last year that was launching his boat and a buck came out of the woods and started to rub his antlers down the side of the boat then actually played with him for a while. His wife actually got it on video, I thought it was kinda cool and figured I would share.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That was july 08 so he was prob good size by winter and normally would have been fine but we had a bad winter last year and the deep snow makes them move slower and are easy prey for the coyote. There were alot of deer lost last winter by natural selection

I figured, (right or wrong?) the more human contact the less chance he would have to make it through the winter.

That could go either way, I am no expert but most are ok unless they rely on feeding and dont get used to making it in the wild. If you dont ffed them they are prob ok

We have a local snowmoblie club that feeds them all the time and there seem to be plenty around.

Default Ive got the book somewhere..this is best I can remember

Back in the 80's there was a guy in N Central Pa(Potter Co) that had nursed a car injured deer back to health. She was released but would return for food and eventually brought more and more wild deer with her.
The guy used to feed 'em bread, they'd take it right out of his mouth. Tourist used to go and feed the deer. I read the guy said you'd think the deer would get used to humans and be easily shot by hunters. His property adjoined state forest land and was open to hunting. The guy said they knew where they were safe and when they left his land they were just as spooky and wild as any other deer.
