A number of years ago a momma deer came around with 2 young ones. Bruce talked to them when they visited him as he worked around outside. The next year the 2 young ones came back and he called them Junior and Eddie. Well, Junior became quite "tame" and was standing by the fence once day looking at the bird feeder in the fenced in back yard. Bruce thought he might jump the fence to get to it (which we didn't want) so he took some cracked corn out to him. Junior ate right out of the bucket! Bruce could also feed him apple right from his hand. Junior did come back last summer after having been gone for a number of years---he is a B-I-G buck now (see picture at the top) but still knows his name---and still likes that cracked corn although prefers it to be in a container on the ground!
