Q: City, you are cracking me up. So, tell me how you got these shots? Salt lick?
GMJ left this on my #1 blog. I don't think she knew what she had done. (but I did tell her)
She was talking about some pictures of 3 bucks I took down the street from my home.
So here is your answer.
A: I have been tracking deer for 40 years now. I have learned to think like them. I know what they are going to do before they do. (plus I can talk to them.... which always helps)
I just ask them to stand like this are to stand like that, and they do it. The only reason they are looking at me is I asked them to. Like the big buck, I said "hey big guy strike a pose for me" and he said "you bet ya Ken" (see I'm on first name bases with them)
Now as far as the second Question, Are you calling me a salt lick or asking me if I need one!
Either way I will answer both.
No I am not a salt lick!
And no I don't need one either, that much salt is bad for you.
No the truth is that I approach them slowly and am always watching their ears and their tails for that is how I judge their temperament. And I always back away watching them. I have found that by doing that, I can return in a few minutes and get even closer to them. They know I'm not going to hurt them and they relax a little.
I hope that this clears it up for you.
