Default Toad of a Muley from my Brotherís neighborhood in Colorado Springs.

Thought i would share. He said the big bucks are really starting to show up. They live at the highest point of their neighborhood and the house backs up to a several hundred acre nature preserve that goes up a mountain side. They have deer, bobcats, bears, etc...

That's a deer crossing sign. They are waiting for the hoof signal.

Man those deer look photoshopped into that photo

Wonder if it was the editing that did that?

I promise you they are not photoshopped. My brother would not take the time to do that.

Man that's an awesome looking deer. But I cannot comment without also saying that there is no way that is an unedited photo. The lines are way too clean. And why would a deer choose to stand on top of a hedge instead of besides it?

That deer looks like he'd hit 70 homers a year, have back-ne, and random rage episodes. #TOAD

Wasnít saying they are just it looks like it dude to the texture and was curious if any editing in Lightroom or something along those lines could cause that effect

I’ve got a buddy that lives in Pinedale Wyoming. He sends me pics and videos of some big big mule deer in his backyard all the time. His wife can’t grow petunias on the back porch because they come up there and eat them.

So I live in Colorado Springs... and I can tell you that this is as common as seeing a dove on a high-wire back in Texas. I would even go so far as to say that this is an average sized "city deer" here in Springs. There is no way this is photo shopped, there are deer in downtown, deer in every neighborhood, even those that are not close to green spaces.
It irritates the heck out of me to draw a mule deer tag, drive 5 hours, hunt 5 days in full scent-lok, face paint, miles off the pavement... then drive home and have them standing in the yard while i'm unloading my gear... But it is pretty amazing to get to watch them up close and personal. I've literally seen them bedded on front porches, flower beds, and all kinds of places you would never expect to see a deer.
