The deer population is definitely happy to have Neal back. Yesterday, just about sundown, we counted 14 ravenous whitetails behind the house.
When the Great White Hunter is away, his wife (me) doesn't do a very good job of keeping the feeder filled. So it didn't take long for word to spread that "he's back and there's corn again." What they don't understand is...I'm on their side. You see, Mr. Buck and Mrs. Doe, it's all a trick. He's baiting you, I tell ya. Come October, you'll wish you had taken a hint from me and stayed far, far away.
