That depends, deer have been known to have a home range of 5 square miles. You just may have one of them MS-13 deer gangs hangin around...

I've only seen one tick in my entire life.

I think this deer may be gone, haven't seen him in some time now.

I wish it was. Well I have no sign of the angry deer that's attacked the dogs, but I am keeping an eye out for it.

Act like you are hunting the deer - and they will probably be scarce. Hide behind corners as if you were going to spring out or shoot them. In the country, no deer would dare be so bold, and if they are that bold, the get invited for dinner, as the dinner.

Among hunters, it is said that deer will be a lot more scared of someone quietly sneaking around the woods than a noisy group of hikers. It is even recommended to talk and walk loudly with a friend when scouting out new hunting areas rather than sneaking about.

Interesting. Well I have a Red Ryder I can shoot it in the butt with it comes back. My presence alone was not enough to scare it off.
