|I'm from the south where deer hunting is a love of men. I for one am not a hunter. I think the deer know this, for every morning and evening we have deer in the front yard. May God bless you every day of your life.

|Dear Phylis, How sad to know how human beings can be rude. Very nicely said. I wonder if in my lifetime this massacre will stop.

|Pea, they send a message of primitive elegance and beauty to me each time I am privileged to spy one at woods edge or dashing across a country lane. I know the farmers have objections to their feeding habits, and I am sure rightly so. But they are fleet footed stately denizens of the woodlands that capture my fancy also. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|The hush! of wonder on your words ... I am undone by the beauty in these lines ... afraid to move too suddenly, as to frighten off the mood ... well done, Pea.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|Deer, with their tails shooing flies away are a sight to behold that I too can't get enough of. They are also nature's pruners, clearing out the lower branches of trees and opening up the forest. Unfortunately, they can over breed (their predators, wolves and bears are not present) and become stunted, inbred, and suffer from other problems like disease.
Taking only the alpha males is not very good idea when nature plucks only the weak and strengthens the species.

|I like em' too. We're on their beaten path across our driveway and back yard at our Mizzou retreat. They stop by each morning and evening. Once in a while we get the evil eye for intruding in their space. But we all get over it. Patrick|

|The deer...another of God's awesome creatures...for us to enjoy! The other day, while out on a bike ride, I saw a mother and her fawn bounding in the brush, she ahead then waiting patiently for her young to catch up. I had to stop to admire their grace and sense of freedom. Perhaps she was teaching him a thing or two.
Beautiful write, Phyllis!

|A writing of natures best. I think hunting Deer should be banished. JMHO.
