I know this post is way out of order since Deer Season here started back in November. But as I was going through photos, I ran across this one taken the day before deer season started. It is quite unusual for deer to come close to the house, but especially a buck. The picture quality is poor because I was inside the house, taking the photo through the window, because I didn't want to scare him off. He stared for the longest time over toward the chicken coop. At first I thought there might be a doe back in the woods behind the coop but I never saw it. Then something spooked him and he dashed off into the woods.
