I chased it off this weekend. The dogs where barking for some time before I got out there, but it was postured like it was going to fight them. Head low, it was odd.

Did you shoot it with your Red Rider?

just talked to a guy that had a deer problem last year. The kids pool came with a sheet of bubble wrap under the cover. The bubble wrap was laid out on the lawn and when the deer went after the dog, the dog sat in the middle of the bubble wrap like a safe zone. The deer walked around it but wouldn't step on the wrap.

I have always found that a compound bow and broadhead tip do the trick....

This is not a report on aggressive deer (at the time).

I just had a pair of deer (doe and healthy fawn) go through my backyard about 25' from my sliding door. About 10 minutes later, another pair went through (doe and very small fawn) went through. If was dumb enough to go out at the wrong time they may have been very aggressive.

About 15 minutes later, a female Canadian goose and 4 goslings in a row came through followed by the male. If I had gone out, I would have had more a of problem with aggressive wildlife since geese can be many times more aggressive and team up.

I had to fight off a goose on a golf course with a putter and gladly the others were far enough away and I got away. - There was a documented case a few years where a golfer was arrested/fined for killing a goose with a putter, but he was released by the court because his defense was self defense protection.

It is the time of the year where there are protective creatures everywhere.

I don't know what you have, but the biggest thing around here right now is these little critters.http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Bear-euthanized-after-it-attacks-woman-4560407.php

Black bears arn't so bad, it's the big brown ones you gotto look out for, up north the friday night entertainment was parking down at the dump watching the grizzles eat. They looked to be twice the size of the black ones.

I have junior bows (I'm not on that much land), and blunted arrows.

I had to kick a gaggle of them once. My Daughter was barely walking and we were at the park when they decided to gang up on her.

There is a group of geese that fear me.

The deer never came back. I'm wondering when their migration season is and if I will see this one again.

When food supplies change, so will deer movement. That and breeding season.
