Whitetail Deer Are Everywhere!

We've experienced more snow than usual around the Bay of Fundy this winter possibly accounting for the voluminous numbers of whitetail deer emerging out of the forest in search of food. This year deer can frequently be seen in broad daylight along the roadside, on people's lawns, and in farmer's fields. In recent weeks so many deer were crossing coastal Route 2, near Portaupique, that a travel hazard advisory was issued on Nova Scotia radio and TV stations!

Artist & jeweler, Gwen Buchanan, who lives across the Bay from me in St Martins, New Brunswick, captured this great photo of whitetail deer frolicking in her back yard.

Thanks for the mention on your blog, Terri.
Two deer came back out this morning but the field is covered with snow again.....
A week or so ago a story appeared in the Kings County Record telling of about 200 deer that were seen grazing in an old cabbage field outside of Sussex.
