There is a herd of deer in my yard right now. I love living out here in the country!
Growing up in Ohio we’d get whitetail in the yard all the time, and it was just a lightly wooded suburban neighborhood, not country by any means. Looks like you’ve got a nice spread out there! The most wildlife I get at my house is squirrels haha.
Beautiful. I live in the country too but my view is nothing like that. Enjoy the peace and quiet.
Good stuff. Very good.
Deer are beautiful animals and they come into our yard often too. My wife nursed a nearly dead abandoned baby deer back to health and took it to a local rehab guy who released it into his estate. Unfortunately they drop ticks, so if I see them in the yard I go out and chase them off. Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever are both prevalent here. I had RMSF and don't want to get it again if I can help it!
Same here..All farm land..Corn and beans..Lovin it...
This once city and suburbia guy in with you 100%! Nature, space, beauty and quiet. Yes!
I can (and do) make my own noise. I don't need anyone else's.
I feel you, we got 15' or so of grass behind the back porch then the woods start. Took this from the porch a week or two back.
about 5' into the woods...
That's amazing ! I only have raccoons and squirrels.
I have a quarter of an acre, and it's probably one of the biggest plots of land in NYC.
I'm really stuck in a quandry ... I'd love to move to the country, but I'd lose about 2/3rds of my salary. NYC teachers are paid pretty well.
Yeah, you got to move to the country and then commute. I have about a 40 minute to an hour commute to get to work. I make decent money in Montgomery County, but I can’t afford a place like this down there.
That's the huge advantage of living in this area I'm at. Surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers, flat desert if I want, all within 15 to 20 minutes away.
Nice pics. The deer in my neighborhood hide in the trees and then try to ambush passing cars. No coincidence that we see the occasional pack of vultures.
No deer here. We have raccoons, squirrels, opossum, mice, ants, and roaches ... and the occasional stray cat.
My daughter's cat was from a stray's litter ... born in my daughter's friends backyard shed. She said the mom never came back. But that's because the human family intervened and changed the kittens' scents. So we have a 5 month old kitten named Kyoshi. Good cat .. better than I expected. Gives me the most attention because I give it no attention. My daughter smothers it with love, and it could care less.
The funny thing about the cat is that it knows exactly the length of the tether on my Pug's leash. It'll sit exactly 1 inch away from the end of the tether. When the pup jumps up to play, the cat'll just sit there ... 1 inch away. ha ha. I'd take a video, but my house is a mess. ha ha
2 things, don't kill possums, they eat ticks, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diatomaceous_earth
Spread it around the area the deer come to.
I would never harm one. They're gentle creatures. We raised an orphan one and it was fun to have around. They like to bare their teeth when something threatens them, but the one we had never once tried to actually bite anyone. In fact it was careful not to hurt us when we offered it food.
Where we live use to be the country until our county started growing and now we are nearing suburb status
It happens. I grew up in quiet DC suburbs and it became city. I moved to a very rural part of NC.
I love this song !
Gonna eat alot of deermeat
