Nope, not chickens. Nope, not money. Deer! That's right, like Bambi. Yesterday Naomi's school was on lockdown for a while because two bucks were roaming the grounds of her school. And then today I saw one crossing the bike path down by the river. Must be rutting season, eh?

We have deer that come down into the foothills near where I live. And a group of volunteers that go out and feed them. They do it every year. I used to help but I don't anymore. I never getting over seeing herds of them in one place. Around here we don't have to go very far away from the city to see them anymore.

When I used to live out in the country, I had about an acre.. just under an acre.. and down near the woods I would put a bowl with any apple peelings and stuff for the deer. I loved to see them come around. I would never shoot any. My dad used to hunt... but he lost interest in it.. and just cooked for the hunters at the lodge we used to spend time at. I saw on the news about a deer bursting into a building.. I guess it didn't realize it was a plate glass door or whatever.

Never seen a school on lock down over a deer. But I suppose for the safety of the kids and the deer to just not cross paths. Yep it should be mating season so they are on the look out for food and that special doe to cross their path so there will fawns a plenty in spring.

Buck! Deer! Hunting Season! My daughter's niece by marriage is just 11 and she shot her first deer. She took a hunting course and passed it and got her hunting license. We are so proud of her. I saw on the news where one deer broke through a plate glass window or a glass door and busted into a school or store or something.. I forget which. The poor thing was so confused, I'm sure. I hope it was alright and not hurt.

I saw that, too. It was a bank the deer broke into. It managed to find it's way out. They said it wasn't badly hurt, just a little cut, as far as they could tell.

I'm not sure what rutting season is and I also don't understand why they would put a school on complete lockdown because of the fact that there were deer roaming on the property. With that said, I know that deer season here opened up this weekend and since I've heard that, I've been asking everyone that I know whether or not they know someone that hunts because I'd love to have some deer steaks.

There have been a couple of incidents here about some deer crossing the main highway. It didn't cause any accidents, but it was in the news that people get paranoid about it. I even thought I saw one when I was driving the same highway. It was just a blurr, but of course I immediately thought it was a buck.

Yup it's their time of the year to get frisky and be out looking for something or someone special! WE have tons of them in our state.....they are all over....alot of them on the road when they shouldn't have been.

You got that right. Thoses bad boys are going at it to attract the ladies. This means fawns in the Spring. Nature just doing her thing.

Nope just too cold in the mountains. I'm pretty sure if I lived up there, I would be looking for warmer territory to roam. I think it's funny they put the school on lockdown for Bambi. He was harmless in the movie. But I guess if a bunch of children were running around me I would get irritated too. Best Wishes!

I am amazed by what you said.How come the bucks were wandering about the grounds of school?Where were they from,whether zoo or forest?If it is the latter, you do a good job in animal rights I must say.

I have never heard of them locking a school down because of wildlife...those must be some dangerous bucks. I remember once going out to my car one morning and there it was...staring at me...a buck. Well..I was scared for a minute but when he seen me he ran off with his family. I'll have to be careful driving to work...they can do a lot of damage to a car if they jump out there.

Lock down over a few deer? We live in the city, so I guess maybe if there were deer around here they might do the same. I grew up in a rural area where deer were pretty common so it seems strange to me.
