My husband photographed these deer in our back yard. He was especially thrilled to get a shot of the whitetail buck deer with bloody antlers. A fuzzy velvet covers the whitetail’s antlers. The deer removes the velvet by rubbing his crown on saplings and shrubs, thus the blood. Ick.
I had to look up the whole bloody velvet antler process on the Internet. I did not just automatically know this. I’m a city girl. Don’t you forget it.
I really love my country scene Garnet Hill flannel sheets. I bought these sheets over 10 years ago and use them sparingly. All of my guests love them. I made the deer pillowcases – appropriate for New Jersey and Wisconsin – they are 100% cotton and cozy too.

When in Wisconsin, do as other Wisconsiner’s do!
Would we have done this when we lived in New Jersey? NO! Anyway, we “faux” hunt. The gun and jacket are borrowed. The first and last time we will do this. We like being in nature.
We are not fond of deer – they are very dangerous. Have you ever hit one with your car? And they are full of tics. Have you ever gotten lyme disease? They are very pretty and everything, but add extra stress to our lives.
p.s. Jasmine, this is my backyard. See how good that green picnic table would look?
The Wisconsin deer was photographed in my front yard. The New Jersey deer was photographed in our friends backyard – 18 miles from Manhattan.
Which deer is tougher?
My husband and I were driving home and counted 60 deer near our house. Here are some of them. The most deer we ever saw at one time was 80 deer near the interstate in Chester, New Jersey!
When we are asleep, deer hang out in our yard. The red dots show where the deer lay around. You can see their footprints in the snow.
It’s deer hunting season in Wisconsin. We don’t hunt, but it’s a very common past time here. I shot this while driving down a country road while lots of hunters were out and about.
