Those are not intruders. You should have them over for dinner.

Funny thing in the eastern USA is that the deer populations in suburban areas along with those of a lot of other critters have been steadily increasing. Yuppy home owners are not as likely to wack them as the former poorer farming house holds would years ago. We have had recently in nearby neighborhoods blackbears running in and out of peoples garages looking for food and other critters are about that include: the traditional feral hogs, super coyotes, lions, and all of the rest of the little critters. The bears and lions are protected. On private lands hogs and coyotes can be killed by any means and at any time.
The wildlife people investigate and try to file charges against anyone killing a bear. They have wiped beekeepers out. A deputy friend of mine told one black bear went in a straight line through the city of pensacola not too long ago migrating to a breeding area around the nearby Perdido River and Forest.

Trophy hunting is fine but for meat, 3 does or very young bucks a year is all the grass fed, non GMO, free range beef my family needs. I cut the backstraps out and turn the rest into ground beef

Agreed, does and small bucks taste a lot better. Most people that say they don’t like deer meat either haven’t had it prepared correctly or they are not meat eaters.

Gabe I believe if they’re facing you it could be considered self defense.

I was thinking about how close I could get, and it took me 5 minutes from door to deer. A passing truck spooked them and then they saw me and I took the picture.

I like the stalk...I was really good at it back in the day. I stalked a rapist in the dark in an alley and broke his leg before he knew I was there.

Great skill to have and great fun too.

Everybody who grew up in cattle country knows someone who tried to rope a deer but I've never heard a single incident that ended up as the cowboy imagined it would.
However, years ago, my bud Ty Murray bull-dogged an elk from a snowmobile. He pulled that off but Colorado P&W didn't see the humor in it and hit him with a large fine for harassing the wildlife.

A guy I was in the Army with who’d done a lot of ranch work said elk take it a lot lighter than deer. He said they’ll start by just pulling and then you have to let it loose and get out of the way because they’ll charge. Deer apparently just go nuts. More like catching a fighting fish.

How deer meat taste depends on several things. 1. How you process it. I have seen some meat that I would not feed to a dog that came from a butcher shop. Plus that same shop had a parking lot full of dead deer, some that had not been gutted yet and had been laying there for who knows how long. And you know that you didn't get your deer back, just the right amount of each cut of meat per animal. That is why we do all our own butchering so we know how it has been handled. Most of the hard fat is thrown out and if it looks the bit bloody around the bullet hole, we trim it off. 2. How you cook it. You can't cook it like beef. You need to leave it a little less done and don't really season it till after you cook it. 3. And lastly what they have been eating. Acorns and wild food makes them taste different but around here most are grain fed on corn and soybeans.

Wild deer go flippin' ape shit when roped. It is funny as hell unless you are on the other end of the rope.

I have friends that have a state license to take in rescued deer. Usually small fawns who's mother was hit by a car. They become like a dog or cat. I have seen pictures of them sleeping on a couch in the house with their head laying on a lap.

Absolutely. Some of the best swiss steak and peppers/onions/steak strips I've had was with deer meat. I have had "strong" tasting deer meat, but that's because the hunter didn't "do it right" when he dropped that deer. Bleed them, nut them, cut the scent glands off the insides of the back legs and gut them right where they lay. The longer you wait, the more the meat will be affected.

Deer are funny animals. I've "whistled up" does on several occasions. Stand still, make funny noises (low whistles, popping noises with your tongue/cheek, kissing/smooching noises, etc. and they get curious as hell. I've stood behind a thin screen of brush and tossed dirt clods and rocks at bucks and they run around smelling where the dirt clods/rocks hit till they finally get nervous and pick a direction to head out. Never did whistle up, or make funny noises, and get a buck to come closer, just works on the does (or did for me).

Nuthin' more fun than honing your stalking skills on the indigenous population

If it's the guy that wrote the story that went around a couple years ago, that's quite the tale.

I get deer in my yard. They'll get within about 40' of me, and don't give two hoots about my dogs.

Had an experience with beef years ago that demonstrates the need for quick kill & proper handling. Bull calf hit by a car, shattered shoulder. Brought to barn and given water late evening. Early next a.m. shot, hung, gutted and skinned. Didn't have the great taste of prime grain fed, but not strong.

A few months later boss had several head doctored, wormed, vaccinated, etc. three bull calves were castrated and de-horned. No one noticed that one was still bleeding when we left. Next a.m. he was down but not dead. We butchered that one and nobody could eat it. After it was in the freezer, even the dogs wouldn't eat it.

Young deer, quick kill, quick gut & cool, hang several days/couple weeks in cooler; PRIMO!

Indeed, getting close to wild game is a lot of fun. Stalking in or setting a ambush is what I love most about hunting.
