The two does fighting would be great if it were in focus.

Yes, but it is still a nice picture, something that isn't often seen, much less captured on film.

Kt...found the deer eating from my feed bunk. When they were done, they ran away jumping and playing. Pretty comical....

Not sure if my link will work or not. I don't know how to do that thumbnail stuff so this is a link to an album.
You have wonderful wide open spaces for the deer to roam, I don't, yet they come every day to eat my flowers, poop in my yard and pretty much wreck havoc.........but they are beautiful.
I think if you click on Slideshow it might be easier.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Your babies are cute, makes it hard to get real upset with them. Your yard is beautiful. We are working on ours. Its absolutely horrible. Never been much of a flowers and pretty sort, but I'm actually liking this beautification project.
You'll have to clue me in on how to view the album or set up a slide show from here.

Later

Nice pics! What kind of feed do you have out? There must be some corn in it.

These were taken January 1 2008. We were feeding mostly wheat mids with a little corn. By feeding wheat mids, the deer got some nurishment without breaking the bank. We fed around 60 pounds a week. They would have eaten more if it we would have fed it. There were evenings I counted over 30 head coming to feed. I've lived here on this very farm for almost 30 years, and have never seen so many hungry deer. Once spring arrived, they vanished into their seasonal routines.

I have groups here of about 24 at the largest, but mostly a dozen or less.

They don't mess with the molasses or sweet feed or even hay, just anything that has corn in it.
