Bi-polar hunter.

Oh it's so cute! Where is your mother? I want to shoot her!

Obviously it's not hunting season.

Forget mom, the children are much more tender. I like my deer with spots on them...

This kind of thing is why I stopped deer hunting. Deer are too much of a social creature for me to shoot. I once saw someone shoot a buck and the doe beside him refused to leave his side even after the guy shot the ground under neath her feet. Too much emotion there for me to go stalk one down and kill it.

I wonder if this deer was raised by or at least has regular contact with people. I know that when some families find an orphaned fawn they start to feed it and give it shelter in a shed for the winter. Usually these are the same people who ride horses and have stables.
 
2012-12-13 12:43:57 PM  
In this particular case, the deer wanted to "bang" the hunter.
 
2012-12-13 12:50:11 PM  
Well you can't shoot that. There's no thrill if it isn't afraid.
 
2012-12-13 01:00:41 PM  
I was expecting its parent to come out of the woods and gore him for touching their kid.

You know, like humans.
 
2012-12-13 01:07:18 PM  
Awwwww

I remember when I was in Japan they had a park where the little deer would come up and you could buy food from the machines to give to them. So cute. So tasty.
 
2012-12-13 01:08:46 PM  
I like the "You be careful" speech at the end. He doesn't want to shoot it until those antlers come in...
 
2012-12-13 01:12:41 PM  
See how the deer keeps licking it's chops? Then it licks him? That's a buck that's dropped its antlers, and I swear I can see it doing the Flehmen response at the beginning of the video.

Dollars to donuts the guy has doe in estrus lure on himself.

from personal experience I can tell you young deer are usually more curious than afraid, unless the mom is around and shows fear and baby follows suit. Deer really become afraid of people once they see us shooting at them. I think this is the reason they aren't really afraid of people if they're in a vehicle. People (minus idiot poachers) don't usually shoot from vehicles so the deer have learned to not really be afraid.

/had a young deer walk up on me once, a hunter 50 yards away saw the deer but not me and shot him right in front of me. After the near heart attack, I found the hunter and screamed at him for awhile, then called the game warden to report the guy has shot an immature deer

Baby calves and pigs are cute too. That doesn't stop most of us from shoving Big Macs and bacon into our pie holes. Just because somebody else slaughtered and prepared the animal doesn't make it any less dead.

That's not emotion, it's horniness. As soon as the doe went out of heat, the two would have parted ways with no more emotional connection than you had with that fat girl you picked up at last call and then gave cab fare to in the morning. It's not love, it's just sex. I understand where you're coming from, though.

So you think if somebody had shot the fat chick dead he'd have stayed around on the off-chance he might get to bang the corpse?

Maybe, I don't really know the guy. Do you really believe that they were in love, and that's why she stuck around? If it had been a doe and her fawn, I would probably agree with you. This was a doe in heat and the buck that managed to fight off enough other bucks to get the privilege of inseminating her before moving on to the next doe the instant she stopped being ready to breed. I've seen bucks try to hump a doe I shot because she still smelled like she was in heat. Deer do not have a lot of high-level thinking skills. They operate mostly on instinct, and her instinct was to stick around and get bred while she had the chance. Deer do some crazy shiat during the rut, and what little reason they normally have goes right out the window when it's time to get naughty.

I don't know about "usually" but it's absolutely one sign of rabies. That was my thought as well.

Chances are that it's just a deer that is comfortable around people...but I'm not sure I'd want it licking me. Rabies is nothing to screw around with.

That's a very fat fawn that's been fed by someone. It's associating the guy with free corn because it and mom have been eating in someone's back yard.

it wasn't BS, and the lady game warden showed up (she was always super strict, I think to over compensate for the chip on her shoulder about being a lady surrounded by rednecks who didn't much care for ladies bossing them around). She fined him and I'm pretty sure she took away his license for a year. He could get it reinstated after taking a hunter safety course. At least that's what she told me she was going to do. They might have had a great big laugh after I left but who knows.

/yes it really happened
//I'm just glad it wasn't a full grown buck and that the shot killed it instantly. Being mauled by a wounded buck sounds just as shiatty as getting shot

FenixStorm1: isn't an animal being placid and generally approachable usually a sign of rabies?


Umm, no. Depending on what stage of rabies, they'll either be lethargic (early on) or aggressive. This deer was neither, just curious. I come across lots of deer when I go Geocaching in the woods. If it's a lone deer, it's more likely to cautiously approach me or let me approach it. If there's more than one, they'll usually be skittish--they'll stand stock-still and watch me. If I move too quickly or too close, they'll bolt.
 
2012-12-13 04:03:15 PM  
It may have had the sickness going around where the deer get all thirsty and die near water: Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease, or EHD.

"The disease is characterized by sudden onset, according to wildlife health sources. Deer lose their appetite and fear of humans, grow progressively weaker, salivate excessively and finally become unconscious. Infected deer often are found sick or dead along or in bodies of water. There is no evidence that humans can contract the EHD virus."

I doubt that this deer has rabies, but lack of fear can be a sign of rabies. You can find this information from a lot of sources, but here's one from the Colorado Dept of Parks and Wildlife:

"Signs of rabies are quite variable, and the type of behavior displayed cannot be regarded as diagnostic. Rabies should be suspected, however, whenever atypical behavior is observed in wild animals. Such behavior includes friendliness or loss of fear, unprovoked attacks, undue aggressiveness, bewilderment or, for some species, appearance in the daytime."


Obviously, your point is that you do not believe that this deer's behavior is atypical based upon deer behavior that you've observed. It would be atypical of deer behavior where I live. And the person who took the video reacted as if it was atypical behavior in his locale.

OK, that's a little scary. I live up in the mountains in Colorado and have had 3 separate incidences of foxes coming up to us this fall. Once there were about 7 of us smoking out back of the fire station and the fox came within 4 feet of us, watching us the whole while. Scary.

I own multiple firearms and I am also a non-hunter - I strictly target shoot. I have no beef with hunters and agree they actually do some "environmental good" and I do enjoy my friends' deer jerky, but....I can't bring myself to shoot a mammal. Unless it's bipedal..well, unless it's human. I can definitely see how shooting a human could be a pleasurable experience. Other animals don't f*ck you over. In fact, they don't do anything that doesn't have a biological imperative. Humans, on the other hand...

Heh, I'm in Denver and I've had my share of run-ins this year. My dogs ran a fox out of the yard that appeared to be scoping out a den site under my deck earlier this fall. Last night I took the dogs for a walk and came nose-to-nose with a coyote hanging out in a dark park... and I didn't even have my coyote rape whistle the wildlife folks gave us! Didn't expect this amount of wildlife encounters in the city.

My dog loves chasing deer and almost caught a buck the other day. Is there a chance they could kick her or antler her? She usually obeys my commands but since she almost caught that deer I can't control her in those neck of the woods at all. She's got a bloodlust.

Sad to see a small male probably separated from his mother, either through hunting or natural causes, trying to find an anchor in his life. 2 things need to happen, Bi-Annual hunting and natural predators (wolf and cougar) back in the eastern woods to teach these young that life it not a piece of woods surrounded by free meals.

This kind of attitude, along with veganism, just makes me sick! How do you think we got to the top of the food chain?!?! It wasn't by being all "Oooh, look at the cuddly animal! We should let it go!" No siree! Kill it, then eat it, wear it, and make tools and ornaments out of it! That's how you become the number one predator on the planet! And prop up its lifeless head as a public announcement to the rest of the animal world about who, exactly, is in charge here!
