When the Corn is in the Silk, —The Deer Come Back to the Farm, Tuesday, July 7, 2020

Now that the corn is in the silk, the deer migrate back to the farm.

So I sat up a couple of game cameras to see if, and when, they had arrived

Deer are notorious for eating the silk off the little corn ears.

Corn has lots of predators—

Bugs, humans, skunks, raccoons, and DEER!

Yep…Here they are.  🙂  We love seeing them.  Terry worries about the corn loss, but we don’t do anything about it.  Some for them, some for us, is our thought.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. That is a nice, young buck. We have a doe that has taken up residence with our next door neighbor. She has a mulberry tree and this doe LOVES it. Then, she curls up in the neighbor’s backyard…like she lives here.

    The deer around this town…man…they come out in broad daylight. They’ve learned over the years that no one will bother them. They are nearly tame.
