Well, to get these deer to go away all you need to do is look at em funny and they bounce off. BTW, I know it's DEER not DEERS, I was just being goofy :P

The plural is deer, like fish. Fauna is the woods and bushes and stuff.


Ummm... no. I'm quite certain that Fauna is the animals. Flora is the "woods and bushes and stuff".

Last year I was walking home from work, at 2am, and I say this fox in a field by the road, not more than 10 meters from the road. When he saw me he moved a couple meters more away and watched me pass.

After I passed by I just happened to look back and found him on the sidewalk not more than a meter away!
I slowly crouched down and pulled some jerky from my pocket(which I had got at the store earlier) and held out my hand...

It took about 5 minutes for him to decide to come close to me, he got almost within arms reach sniffing at my hand, then a car came whizzing by and he jumped back into the bushes.

Closest I had ever been to a fox before.

Wow... that fox must be quite used to being around humans.

During today's trip to a flea market we came across a bunch of reindeer, an elk and a grouse. I really wish they would stay away from the roads...

Location: Busting roads! One mile marker at a time.
My wife smacked one with her car on our way back home from Louisiana, last night. Although she braked hard and barely hit it....busting a headlight and causing a "small dent" in the hood....the estimate from the body shop today was $2500! :shock: They want to replace areas of the car I didn't even know was damaged! The drivers side door apparently was struck with the deers head because the grass saliva is pasted on pretty thick. :lol: But I can barely see the microscopic "ping" left behind...oh well. Luckily I have full coverage and only have to pay a small deductible ($250). Hope I get a cool rental while it's being repaired :wink: I thought about putting this in the "Get It Off Your Chest Plate" area, but decided to post here instead.
