You have such wonderful wildlife in your country. I just can't understand why people would want to hunt such a beautiful animal. Are these bucks safe to be around? In the UK, I know better than to go near red deer stags. The other species over here are rather small and very shy.

Thanks ! Yes, the wildlife is pretty great here. Out west it's even better (bison, elk, moose, bear and so much more). The best place to go to see wildlife is the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. It's near Yellowstone National Park. We went to both places in 1998 and we're dying to go back.
White-tail buck aren't to be trusted. Any older buck usually won't let you get near them anyway. I'll go in the field with the yearling bucks or maybe even a 2-year old. I'm very careful in the fall though, during rut (mating season) Bucks have been known to attack during that time.
The deer see me out in the yard all day long and they now know my scent and they even know my voice now. There are a few that allow me to get to within a few feet of them. I love it in the late spring when the does start bringing in the fawns. They buck and run and play......it's great to watch !
