Deer Friends

deer III

My woodland friends stop by every day for a snack, and I hope to have them feeding out of my hand before long. They seem like such timid, gentle creatures, and yet they can be quite mean to each other.

I made this feeder out of snow for them with two troughs and a partition between them because the “bully” of the group wouldn’t let the others eat. As you can see, it didn’t work.

I just thought I’d share a typical winter morning here in northern Minnesota, deer included. Ya, you betcha. Living up here in the sticks has its drawbacks, but we sure have deer friends.

  1. Yes! When we first moved out to our cabin-turned-home, we fed the white-tail deer in the back yard. I loved waiting sneakily on the deck for them to appear each evening to gobble up whatever we had left. I was shocked at the big bullies that would come in there and chase the little babes away! Nobody believed me, but I’ve seen it!
