I've narrowly missed 3 deer in the past couple of years and hit one square on. How on earth do you get them to stand at the side of the road without bolting in front of the very first car that comes along?

JD

Ken, they are hypnotized by light. Perhaps his headlights reached them before they had a chance to get out into the road.

We are inundated by deer here in Wisconsin, most of the natural predators having been diminished if not eradicated. We often have them walking through our neighborhood. We can ship some to Valley Forge if you like.

Ken, JD,

Valley Forge is lousy with deer. You can hardly finish saying the name George Washington without having half a dozen of them cross your path. But they are very tame deer. They're so used to people that they practically pose for photographs. And they appear to have learned to look both ways when crossing the road because I've never seen one dart out or come across a dead one on the roadside. This is why I was suprised not to see them that night last month and why I was surprised Saturday night when there weren't any out again. Either they've all decided the night feeding's better at some other part of the park or they've stopped being nocturnal. They're 9 to 5-ers now. They're done for the day when the tourists go home, I guess.
