I have a little over 3 acres and a little over half of it is wooded. I have seen deer on our road but over the last 5 1/2 yrs very rarely would I see one run across my property. Last fall during gun season my wife saw 5 does and fawns out below the house--of course I was out hunting elsewhere This morning I was shooting my bow and went to the target to pull out the first arrows of the day and what do you know, a deer started snorting at me from my woods. The cover is quite thick and I couldn't see it but it sounded no more than 60-70 yds. This is very encouraging to me. I would love to shoot a deer on my property, but more than that I would like to see them on a more regular basis. I don't know how I ever stood living in the city.
