The time when deer are the most active is called the Rut. This occurs in late Autumn to early Winter. This is when the male deer (buck) chases the female deer (doe) with the thought of propagation on his mind. The Buck will stop at nothing to accomplish his goal of impregnating a Doe to ensure his genes will live on in the birth of a baby deer (fawn) come spring. If you have heard the warning " if you see a deer run across the road, there are sure to be two or more to follow behind" this is the reason, the Bucks are chasing the Does with romance on their minds and oblivious to all else. As the saying goes, 'love is blind". After the mating season (Rut)the deer return to their normal behavior.

Now that I'm no longer allowed to feed the deer that gather in my back yard every evening looking for a little snack, I shall cease this program immediately. No longer will my family and I enjoy watching the deer quietly nibbling on the molasses coated feed corn that I put out for them. No longer shall I see the lone sentry standing 60 feet away from the feeding zone at precisely 5;30 PM every night waiting for me to spread out a lttle corn for those waiting behind him. I will miss this.
But wait! Oh s--t!!! This means come Spring I will have to tear out all my wife's flower beds and shrubs and cover the bare spots with gravel lest I be cited by the city for feeding the deer!! Go figure.
