Once the rut kicks in, that particular deer will become extremely dangerous to humans.

The fellow petting him is only kidding himself if he thinks that buck is going to stay on his property during the rut.

This story smells of someone in the area releasing a captive buck he could no longer handle and had become afraid to try any longer. Once that antler velvet hardens, the aggressive male hormones will kick in, and this becomes an aggressive buck that doesn't fear humans.

I got deer that get in my flower beds and up next to the porch. We treat them as a nuisance, not pets. This guy needs to quite being such a sissy. My backyard deer don't get fed either, even though I like looking at them.

I've tried kicking the ones that eat my roses. But they've learned exactly how far my leg can't reach.

I got a BB gun but they do the damage at night now. Wish they'd mow down my clover in my yard, but they prefer the nice flower beds.

I am waiting on the story this fall from that area that reads something like "Local man gored by deer"

We have a problem with them eating flowers of all kinds. Started spraying everything with Deer Stopper once a week and that took care of the problem. Lots of red pepper in that spray along with egg whites to make it stick to the leaves. It only took a couple times for them to find it taste bad.

For deer that show virtually no fear of humans, the deer in my area are shockingly nocturnal. Some of my neighbors don't even believe we have deer in the neighborhood because the deer never move during daylight. Yet about midnight, flip on a porch light and deer can be seen everywhere.
