    Hey, I've got a pair of those, too. They've been around about every other day for the past several weeks. Mom's teaching them to eat my Hostas, lettuce, celery, tomatoes and pansies, as well as to drink from my pond. The pond I don't mind, but the rest...

    Great pic Frank! I really enjoy being able to see wildlife up close like that! Unfortunately Like Jim said they can be a nuisance, but they sure are cute!

    Bean plants and tulips are also among their favorites.

    Because of some government funding we get for agriculture and forestry use, we actually have to make landowner plans for wildlife. That is fine by us as we have always looked out for wildlife over the years. Anyway, one of the ways we accomplish this is through deer plots.

    In a nut shell we plant winter rye in the fall and winter, and then till that under and plant oats in the summer. Over the years we have noticed a lot of deer, some turkeys as well, and occasionally this girl comes out to eat. I snapped this picture about a month ago. She is about 50 feet off my lawn and about 100 feet from the house.

    I have to tell you, there is nothing quite like watching deer and moose roaming on your lawn while you enjoy a cup of coffee early in the morning.

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Yeah, I know. Weplanted over 300 tulip bulbs last Fall. The deer got all but about a dozen of them. Really disgusted about that!

    Wife got one with the Subaru a couple days before last Thanksgiving. Also cost about $2,100.00. Bummer!

    Hunting season isn't that far off. Wats a non-res license cost in MO?

    A few years ago I was out snowmobiling and hit and killed a Turkey. It was not on purpose though. I came into a big field and opened my sled up. About a quarter of the way across I came onto a group of turkeys. They took to the air but one was flying low. I inadvertently bounced him off my windshield and watched him roll off into the snow. Because these are federally protected birds I just kept going...kind of afraid I would get into trouble for smoking it, even though it was not on purpose.

    I looked it up. Pretty expensive. I don't shoot them in my back yard. That ain't 'hunting'. But, those turkeys do look tasty at times. I might, one day, be tempted to 'harvest' one.
