Tonight my wife went to a ladies craft night at the church and what shows up right outside MY OFFICE? Yep, good ole Bambi.
I kid you not, my office is 20 yards from this deer, which relieved herself in front of the paparazzi.
My jokester wife got one of my sons target bows out of my office and stalked the doe to within 10 yards. PETA advocates can chill, this bow can't shoot at lethal strength and the tip of that arrow is blunt. Beyond all that, my wife couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside. Bambi is quite safe...for now. Apparently Shari hasn't seen the dog-stomping deer I posted just over a week ago, she might not have been so bold.
I believe this is an orphaned yearling doe. It's not a fawn. The likelihood of her making the Redeemer property and the immediate area her home range is pretty good. We have water (pond), lots of clover, acorn trees and subdivisions next door full of luscious flower beds and the like.
I'm torn, should I take care of her on day one of the bow season opener or should I wait and see if she draws in a big buck to my office door come November?
