This morning when I woke up and staggered downstairs to the kitchen to make coffee (yes, I DO make better coffee than any woman <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> ), I looked out the front window and standing in my front yard was a deer, a nubbed buck, rooting around and eating hickory nuts. This is odd because I live in a subdivision and the back of my property backs up to a lake, so I really don't know how he got there. After my son came down he sauntered off in search of more discreet environs, I imagine.<br><br><br><br>
Before I could get up to speed on the freeway out of my street, I noticed a car-struck doe dead on the side of the road. WOW, 2 deer in a half hour, what is up with THIS? Not 100 yards down the road was ANOTHER dead deer in the middle of the road this time, a fawn.<br><br><br><br>
As I drove on to work I kept reflecting as to whether the new highway construction was eliminating their habitat and forcing them into human habitat to dire results. Then, right before I get to my office about 10 miles away, here's yet ANOTHER dead deer, a young buck, on the shoulder. ALL of these deer died before sunrise this am. Something is going on, something to affect their thinking. Or perhaps it was Deer Jackass day . . . . :-(<br><br><br><br>
A sad scene all around . . . . .

Wow. What a horrifying day. It wouldn't surprise me if human encroachment was somehow the cause.<br><br><br><br>
?: What does nubbed mean? I could look it up, but it's my turn to ask someone on the boards what something means!

Epski, I don't think it's a recognized term but more of a slang expression. It refers to the little buttons or "nubs" on top of the head where the horns are starting to protrude.<br><br><br><br>
It was indeed a strange and troubling thing . . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">
