2013 deer update

Lucy chewing on deer antlers

We've seen deer tracks this winter, but not in the garden.

I've seen a few does in the neighbor's field, but not as many as previous years.

Lucy has been chewing on a rack of deer antlers the last few days. I'm guessing she sniffed out a young buck that was shot and got away from whoever shot it.

Deer lose their antlers each year after the rut season, it is natural. A huge problem for farmers in the Midwest who often find the discarded antlers puncture their (expensive) tractor tires.
