Default Doe in the yard

yesterday evening i was in my shop and heard a deer blowing in front of the house. I walked around to see what was going on and a doe was in the front yard blowing at my cat. Apparently she had her fawn very close by and didnt want that Tom cat around. I walked in the house and my wife and daughters were watching out the window. The cat and deer were having a stare down in the yard. Finally the cat broke and ran to the porch and doe was hot on his heels. She ran up to within 20 feet of the porch chasing the cat, then she just walked back to the edge of yard and started feeding around. Pretty cool evening.

Is sure is cool having deer in the yard. A few years ago my Lab had walked by a doe in the yard that had a fawn and the doe chased him down a hit him a couple of times before I could intervene. All the deer in our yard knew my Lab was no threat because he would lay in the yard within 10 yards of them all the time while they ate and he would pay them no attention but when a doe has a fawn all bets are off.

A doe tried that with my Blue Lacy. The Doe ended up running off after my dog dog called her bluff. The fawn just bedded down as the doe distracted the dog.

We've still got the same doe from the last two years hanging around our place. This year just like last she's got her twins with here and is hugely pregnant. Last year she ended up having her twins inside the fence around our house out in the Bermuda grass that I never mow. I so much more prefer watching nature instead of neighbors.

I'm convinced the deer bring their new born fawns in close to the house to protect them from predators......this one took it a little too far

I watched a buck ground check my 3D deer with horns and then force himself on my pronghorn target. I had to run him off before he destroyed it too. There was blood all over the rear end of that target. Right in the front yard. During the rut I just put targets up because they're sometimes laying on the ground dismantled in the morning

If that ever happened here my daughter would have it in the house laying on the couch eating cookies.

I have no doubt they do, well maybe not on the porch like yours. They leave them in our yard all the time. Here is a pic, no fawns in the pic but you can see I have plenty of fawn producers that I feed a lot. I will have anywhere from 10-35 deer come in each feeding and some will let me get to within 5ft of them.

I was shooting these targets right before I took the pic. Not all the deer at my place will stand around when I shoot but some will as you can see from the pic. I got a couple that if they see me outside, they will come over to me to see if I have any corn for them and sometimes will follow me around the property for a little bit.

Nice... We rented a house outside of Johnson City this past week and we saw critters daily, most all day, everyday.

I will live up there one day, Lord willing.

We have them all over our neighborhood. Most of the time it's kind of fun to watch the fawns and their mommas. Some of them, however, get very aggressive. We've had two neighbors attacked while walking their dogs, two little dogs injured and one little dog killed by a doe so far this season. They are not tame no matter how used they are to have humans and dogs around.

Yes they are dangerous. I always watch my backside when I go out to feed because some of them will circle around behind me. I don't like when they are walking behind me and only 5-10ft away. I've never had a problem yet but It's always something I pay attention to. It's amazing how hard they can throw a punch, I watched a doe hit another doe in the ham and the doe that was hit couldn't put any weight on that back leg for several days.
