New house, new wildlife part 1

New house, new wildlife part 1

We moved to a new house about a month ago.  The second night that we were there, a doe came out from the woods.  Since then, we have had three does hanging around, one of which was VERY pregnant the last time we saw her (I am hoping for twins!)

They are out on the back lawn at least twice a week and one morning, I had a doe only a few yards from the house.  When I threw open the curtains, she just looked at me and kept eating.

If I draw a doe tag this fall, they are not necessarily safe but until hunting season arrives,, we will keep watching them.
