We have a large deer population on our 40+ acres. The does are so fat and sleek & the bucks snort with real vigor in the early morning hours. Our dogs go nuts when they see them. I was in the big pasture yesterday morning walking along the field margins when a pair of does loped past with ease. The dogs were nipping at their hooves. The deer were drawing them away from their fawns, allowing the dogs to get oh so close, and then a burst of real speed that left the dogs gasping.
