Saturday, I was about to hop on my Computrainer in a room which faces toward the back of my house. Our property is partially wetlands and abuts conservation land as well. As a hobby, I enjoy feeding the birds year round. Occasionally we might see a deer or two but very rarely.
As I was about to get on the trainer, I happened to glance out back and here's what I saw.
After a quick count I tallied up approximately 30 deer. It's been a very snowy New England winter thus far and as the picture shows, the deer are hungry. I wanted to run out carrying my refrigerator crisper bin and dump it for them after watching a few of them try unsuccessfully to nibble from the 2 seed feeders I have hanging.
After a trip to Lowes later that day, I bought a huge bag of seed without the shells and dumped it in a bucket and brought it further out in the woods for them. We are expecting a few warm days ahead so hopefully the ground cover will reappear soon for them to find food.
What a rough life being a deer...
I hope everyone is excited for the upcoming season and starting off 2008 with some solid training!
