Wheat and Deer?

....I had such a good time last night. I'm just reading all the posts this morning.
Found another one perplexingly interesting. Having done a bit of deer hunting in my day. One kind getting a license after the hunt. Another having to have a license before going out. So! What has wheat and deer have in common? Straw mattresses?
Where I come from, plant alfalfa and try to keep them out. I must be messing something here.

Since we got our llamas, the deer keep dropping by, and giving them the once-over. Must be thinking they're the ugliest deer they ever saw!
Boy llamas sure are checking out the does, they must be thinking they're the sleekest doe llamas they've ever seen!

I let the kids have a little plot of ground to plant some stuff to attract the deer and make a big rack .
They went out and paid $300 for a bag of stuff and planted it . I had five acres of buckwheat and the deer walked across their $300 stuff to get to my buckwheat . I just grinned .

Got me, but the other evening I walked out to feed my horse, and she was down by the stream 'talking' to two pregnant doe. When I called to her, she whinnied and walked up to me and was her usual affectionate self. The deer just sort of slowly wandered up the hill.
I have been telling the mare ever since not to worry, I don't eat horse, and deer lie...
Morning Fern, all.

Deer are funny critters aren't they? We've been scattering cracked corn for one that was hurt, since some hunter's bullet winged him in november. Even though i get kinda close, that little guy still looks at me like i shot him. Spring is rough on critters - granted the ground is bare but there's precious little nutrition within reach. Most deer starve this time of year before summer, so if you've been helping out, don't stop feeding them til things green up..

The deer here, come into the yards, eating food from bird feeders, chew on any new growth coming up....with deer hunting season every year, one would think they would be thinned out, even with our cold harsh winters at times, and the ones that don't make it across the roads, interstates, we still have the wildlife, but country living beats city living anytime, it is nice to see critters year round, that aren't found in the concrete jungles......
