Some years, up at our mountain meadow, we have camp deer. We don’t know why. We never feed them, and we are very fastidious with our garbage. Still, they hang very close. They seem to trust us, but they flee and hide when strange backpackers pass by.

I’ve wondered if our camp deer stay with us during times when mountain lions are close by.

Usually, our friendly deer is a female. This year we had two, Jane Doe and Two-Buck Chuck. Less than two bucks is what this young male’s life is going to be worth, if he is still hanging around humans when hunting season begins in mid-September.

You must look friendly as a group. :)
