A deer ran across Bedford Rd a few days ago only a few feet in front of my car. Fortunately I was driving extra slowly or we would have been on a collision course. Also, 6 deer regularly bed down between some trees in my yard. It occurred to me that it would be easier to cull them when they are sleeping or at rest. Maybe not as sporting but probably more humane and certainly easier. It gives access to groups of them instead of finding them one at a time randomly.

A group of 6-7 passed through out backyard (Bedford Rd) and into the woods shared by several neighbors’ on Sheridan. This is regular occurrence; I would say I spot some group of deer 3-4 times per week. This is clearly safe passage way for them, they come very near house and eat whatever is available.

Makes sense to me too, Judy. There is a family that beds down in backyards behind/south of the 600 block of Sunset. (have pics) Was amazed that for the aerial count most of the deer were in parks/wooded nature areas (and not in residential where they chomp away before/after?)….but that makes sense because in the morning you see them move from their resting/sleeping area, and then in the evening they return. And before the snow melted you can find their hoof paths to easily track movements between overnight resting and daytime deer play areas!
