One of my readers asked if we have that many deer around here (I mentioned a line of cars at the local butcher shop). He said he didn't recall me mentioning deer in my journal.
Well, we have plenty of them: Almost any time I ride down at the river bottoms or in farmers' fields, Blue and I scare up a deer or two. One day I was riding along the levee and gave Cliff a call on my cell phone; the minute I said something, two deer jumped out of the weeds not ten feet away, which of course made Blue jump with surprise. I almost dropped my phone!
There's an article in today's Kansas City Star about the growing problem of car accidents involving deer: click HERE. I hope you don't have to sign up in order to read it, but if so, let me know and I'll just copy and paste the article to an entry.
I don't have the opportunity to get pictures of deer because they're so fast at getting away. By the time I calm my horse down and dig the camera out of my pocket, they're long gone.
