Deer Kept Me Out Of My House

AcadiafunDecember 2, 2013

Last night I was next door and was going to my house when I spotted a large buck in my front yard. Earlier that day there was a doe eating something in my yard.

I was a little intimidated because I know deers can be dangerous this time of year. I waited for awhile and he didn't leave. We yelled out and he turned to face me and then dropped his head down and pawed the ground. He wasn't leaving so I waited another half hour until he did.

Was I too worried? If I would have walked to my door do you think he would have left?

I think you were wise to wait it out - his behaviour was definitely not indicating fear and you could have been seriously injured had he charged.
