If anyone was wondering...

...how that deer left the antlers in the feeder?

There he is, that little stinker. I guess I can feed him a bit for leaving us such a nice present. The feeder is about 5.5 feet off the ground, and in a different shot, he had his leg right in the feeder too. They have to be bedding down close to the house, since I went out to feed them and they came running AS SOON as I opened the garbage can of food. The dogs chased them off, but they didnt go far, they were back as soon as the dogs were in the house.
Of course, deer bring wolves, so every year we watch and worry a bit. But we ARE in the wilderness, so can't really blame them. And we ARE bringing THEIR food to us. So they happen to get a quick meal with a dog instead, I would feel horrible, but nature has it ways, and they were here before us. I can only hope and pray it doesn't happen.

  1. We must need a different style of bird feeder! There haven't been nearly as many deer on our place this year.
