(Clicking on photos will open large size view.)Photos from our window view and outside deck show Whitetail deer have adapted to human presence so well that we now often refer to them as "Urban Whitetail."
Sometimes they browse 20 feet away from a person working in a yard. The fawns become so comfortable around us that they fail to run when we walk nearby, often with our dogs, and that can be a mistake.
We have 30 to 40 head of whitetail in the neighborhood which encompasses about a one-mile by two-mile rectangle. They bed down in our trees and eat them too. They are notorious for eating yard landscape shrubs and gardens left unguarded.
Life in rural Montana. You have to LOVE it!
