These critters live in our yard. Well, actually the buck only comes by when it's party time - that is October and November, during the rut, but the females and their offspring live here year round. I guess the find a safe refuge from the cougars who prey on them. We live on a 5-acre parcel of paradise. To us, that is the wilderness. To the cougar, that is downtown and they might like to visit, but they don't like to live here.
