My wife and I drove up to Sequoia NP today found this guy watching over his harem.

Check out the blood on his antlers! That is an incredible shot! He must have just shed the "fuzz".

Of course that's Buck :whistle:

The secret is N a t i o n a l P a r k s !!!

Move slowly...stay erect...errrrrr I mean don't crouch or sneak like a predator would do when stalking. Move in and out...errr I mean don't make a B line for the deer weave around a bit. Also when their ears are perked up.... I reach over and pull a little grass once in a while, like I'm grazing with them, rubbing it between my fingers in a chewing motion.
I know it sounds weird...but it works :paranoid:

WW, I tried your trick this weekend, but with a cat. The cat didn't want anything to do with me, so I laid down on the floor and stretched out, rolled over and stretched some more. Pretty soon she came by me and started doing the same. We were friends after. :D
