penned deer and manners

Submitted by jen on 01/31/2003. ( )

is it bad manners to try to find where there are some penned deer, and ask permission to abserve them? and where does one find out where there are such places?

I think its fine to ask for permission.

Just explain to the owners, you are interested in the actins of deer and make the emotions change. Many will understand that you are studing for taxidermy purposes. Other may be reluctant.

Just ask and explain how you are looking for the emotions a deer may show.

You may even ask if you can bring some bread to feed them.

Good luck

manners are usually welcome over bread

I own deer and often find myself arguing with people who dont have enough manners to ask, that open gates and drive in to see them unannounced, and certainly unwelcome. Of course, Im the bad guy then! Some of us are very private, while others LOVE company. If you wanna bring them a treat, apples are tough to turn down. Leave the bread home for the sandwiches. How nice of you to post this so as to ask first though!

You must be confused mixed up or something Bill, EARL is the only bad guy ?

I invite people to stop by for those close up looks.

Because there just ain't nothing like being able to study live deer and I'd like to share that fortune with others. They get the rule book on how to act however.

An interesting point of interest. Once I think I've got the feel for mounting a whitetail, and I walk out to the pen to reference again, the live deer start to look wrong. LOL That ALWAYS tells me something!
