    Good afternoon all. This guy just wandered thru the yard a few minutes ago. From a handsome young deer perspective. He is most unfortunate. However if that rack got full size. I think he'd have a mean right hook during the rut! Thoughts? LOL! Have a great day all!
    Cheers Jim

    Points plus spread makes him one of the better spikes in a buck pool though.

    These guys are not dumb. All the dogs here except the new puppy ignore the deer entirely. They bed down here at night. Sometimes 8-10. Plus it has all sorts of exits to thick bush. Residential enough you can't really get away with taking one in the yard. I have zero doubt ill see this for a long time to come. ;)

    Maybe whatever happened to make you the way you are is in the water, and it's spreading to the deer.

    He could be a "diamond in the rough"... give him a few years to grow up and he could have an awesome non-typical rack.

    Very possible. The pics didn't do him justice. Other than the rack. A very healthy a strong looking little fella.

    It was to dark for pics or video with my camera. But this buck had a young bear running in circles last night. If you've ever seen a wise old cat let itself be chased by a young puppy. That's what I was watching. The buck would easily out distance him in a big circle. Then stop and look back. Almost saying. "What you gassing already, light weight!" Landlord eventually came out with a airhorn and put the run on the bear. The deer just wandered back to tall grass as if nothing had happened. So no unarmed night walks for me from now on. I got good chuckle watching that bear fall over his own feet. LOL
    Cheers Jim

    Good! He needs a lil heat taken off him because I put him to the flames every year :14:. Every Christmas for the past few years I cook caribou (pretty sure they're just wild reindeer, not 100% on the distinction between the two) spaghetti while wearing a santa hat haha! My girlfriend says its a cruel thing to do on christmas but when people mention santas reindeer I just get hungry :dblthumb:

    I bet he gets bullied by the other more well endowed bucks on a regular basis lol. With antlers like those he probably gets his blacktail kicked all the time, they don't look ready for battle what so ever!

    Your correct the difference between caraibou and reindeer is which continent you find it on. Genetically identical otherwise. If your interested is some uniquely Canadian Xmas music (trust me you will only want to hear it once) YouTube "grandma got run over by a reindeer" if you turn it off after less than the minute. Don't feel bad, most do. LOL.

    See what happens when you let Canadians breed their own deer? First they screwed up the Canadian Goose by calling it a Canada Goose, now this? Sheesh! Next thing you know we'll let them have their own polar bears too? Come on.

    For the record the goose was broken when we found it. You guys didn't want it. You had guns, we had opinions! Canadian goose it is! ROFL!

    I think those are handlebars on that deer customized so you can ride it home from the bar without getting a DUI.

    You got it buddy! This is the economy model. It's difficult to find apartments with moose parking. Some folks are keeping them indoors. But you need the room for a litter box. Litterally a whole room!;)

    All of it is owned by the landlord. He's a retired mechanic and still tinkers. I have little need to own most tools. He has over a dozen chainsaws and 6 or 8 weed wackers. He also helps with car repair for free. Yup I live in a great place! :dblthumb:

    I got a decent pic of the looker of the two boys. I was watering the garden and snapped it as I went by. Still have to zoom a bit unfortunately. The limits of a camera phone.

    You gotta stop feeding him artificial flowers in the flower beds, he will probably turn out to have the biggest rack around.

    I think your referring to the plant on the left side of the pic. I don't know what's it's real name is. We call it elephant ear. The leaves get the size of a trash can lid. It has stiff hairs almost thorns. Despite that the deer do eat it.
    Cheers Jim

    Ok, I jumped the gun and typed before doing my research... not Hogweed, but GIANT RHUBARB!
