    Haven't seen any deer so far this year, but I did see a herd of their larger relatives (elk) on the way into work yesterday morning. Stopped in the middle of the road for one quick picture (traffic coming up behind me so only time for one) and got the south half of the herd. There were easily that many more to the north (left) of the ones in the picture. (BTW, the final elk/deer season here in Colorado ended on November 20th...but I was tempted anyway...)

    The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.

    Cool picture - moving down from the mountains for the winter??
    Occam's razor, the simplest explanation will be the most plausible

    That field is where a farmer normally has his herd of cows. There's a creek that runs through it and a draw to the northwest. It's up against the foothills but the real Rocky Mountains start about five miles further west. I think you're correct - they came down from the high country and are going to winter down here at this lower elevation (around 5,000 feet). Sure hope I see them again so I can post some more pictures for everyone!

    I quit hunting several years ago.
    It was just more work than fun.
    No one in the family liked the meat.
    I did find a elderly neighbor that was a preacher at a small church.
    They would take the meat and process it and give it to people in need.
    So, we gave them all the meat, plus several others guys gave meat and they were very happy to get it.
    When he died they shut down the church and that is when I stopped hunting.
    I do some hunting with my camera when I can, I do enjoy that.

    Quit hunting 17 years ago, personal reasons, but I do miss deer camp and certainly wish everyone else the best of luck during the season!!

    I Really do miss hunting squirrel and grouse in the fall. Great hunting, great time of the year!

    So at home now, I feed the deer, bear and turkey... Elk up at camp, none here... : )
