Backyard Visitor

We returned home from a weekend at our lake home on Sunday afternoon.  As I neared the patio door leading to our deck and back yard, I saw this…

This guy was huge!!  I have seen deer in our yard throughout the years that we have lived here but have never seen a buck, especially one this big!  There is a pond right behind that cluster of trees so he finally got up and headed for the water.

I dont' knwo about where you live but ours are coming into rut, so their little hormone brains make them not think too much. Cool picture, I love to have the bucks around for them to shed their horns in the winter, but rubbing my little tree's does not make me happy.

Oh he's beautiful! He might have been scared up out of the park, as it's closed this week for hunting. There are several hunters in there and the deer are on the move! We had two sparring in our driveway a year ago. Right in front of Dean's car!

My daughter just asked "Is that from the zoo?" I told her no, it was in someone's backyard. She said "can I have a baby goat?"

That is awesome! We don't get deer near our home... but just up the road a bit by my in-laws home, we see them often! So beautiful!
