A bunch and nice.
Personally, I dont like the idea of wild animals getting accustomed to humans, but not saying much can be done about it. They “look” like the same animals I have to work hard to hunt, but then again they aren’t.

I once had that ideology. Then I hunted few family only ranches…where lack of hunting pressure per acre over generations of deer is interesting result. Some of the public land ive hunted is interesting, tag # go down but human presence(hikers, runners, yoga etc) increases, and you get a similar ideology as above.


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Then you would be very disappointed hunting a huge ranch like the King Ranch. There are deer there that have little to no fear of humans due to the fact they hardly ever see humans. I was able to go onto the King Ranch with my uncle back in the late 70's and saw how gentle those deer were first hand. I have seen videos of archery hunters stalking bucks and shooting them at under 30 yards. One deer ended up netting book. Not all the deer on that ranch are like that or still like that today. I know a man who stalked and killed a buck at 20 yards with his bow on another South Texas ranch....low fence and not that large of ranch. Deer on large nonhunted ranches that have very little human traffic are not that wild since they do not view humans as a threat. Once deer are hunted they become wilder and smarter. They view humans as a threat. Shoot them from a vehicle and after a few years see what the results are like . Shoot from a stand/blind and let other deer see you exit or hear you in the blind and you have now educated them. Some deer even on the largest ranches or more heavily hunted ranches just have a different temperament. Not the norm but still it happens more than one thinks.

I've seen it both ways....Whitetails that very rarely saw people were so high strung you barely even saw them and then deer that see people all the time that really don't pay that much attention to people. I have a small property in the hill country that sees a decent amount of pressure and the deer there are not very wild at all.

Some of the most docile animals I've run across were Mule Deer in the National forest.


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Not sure what you are looking at, but if so so, someone gonna be pizzed. Pretty sure that' a fence around a residence designed to keep deer out.

All so very true stxrm!


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Tis the Big Bang Theory twas tellen bout in other posts...
The ol brown (& legal) it's down educates the rest...
Deer learn ta pattern hunters..

First lease my first stand twas climb tree, drop string ta pull rifle up..
Everyone had deer blinds, drive atvs, three wheelers ta stand, while i walked...
Ya see trails, scrapes, rubs, droppings... While they doomed right by em..
Ya later, had me own stands... Sit & wait...
Hunters get frustrated, confused2. we're are the deer ? Ya would see does,
bang bucks stayed outside perimaturs , as said:
some times ya gotta think outside the box ta see the deer...

Old school...

We were on St John’s island (USVI) yesterday and there was a deer, appeared to be a whitetail but who knows, walking through a park.

One of my favorite things about traveling to different parts of the Rockies is seeing city deer. Some of the towns around Mt Rushmore are just thick with deer feeding in people yards. For me, that would be the ultimate dream to live in a place like that. Thanks for posting the pictures, I really enjoyed them.
