I don’t mean to feed the deer. I know it’s not legal to do so. In fact, it’s illegal in my state (and many others) to feed any wildlife other than the birds. However, the deer (and the squirrels and the chipmunks and the occasional raccoon, saints preserve us) have minds of their own.
I had no sooner put the seed out for the birdies this morning, when I turned to see three large does helping themselves to my feeders.
