Look what greeted me as I walked out my door to start my car before work at 3:30am this morning.



He was pretty cool until I started the car. Then he got all pissed off and wouldn't let me back into the house. I tried yelling at him and waving my arms but nothign would budge him from my door step. I think he would have tromped me but good if I hadn't been hiding behind the car. Another weird thing was neither him nor my dog seemed to have any interest in each other. You would have thought them old friends.

Awesome pic and story!
Thanks for sharing. And I think it's pretty cool to see a doe run thru the back yard :)

Ain't that the way it goes! They are invisible during the open season then don't let you back in your house two months later. Is it revenge? Here I live in the bush and the biggest bulls I've ever seen have been in Anchorage near the park strip and out near the airport post office.

Thanks for the post.

Put a leash on him, would make one **** of a conversation piece! ;D

Around here we see most of them when winter starts too.... Never had to get off a trail when on snowmachine to pass them by, but had to turn around on roads a couple of times....

That was good and a good story also.
It makes me wish that I could see something like that in real life----well, maybe.
Blessings

Back in the late 80s early 90s we lived in Eagle River, up on Sky Line Dr. The wife drove a Jeep Scrambler then, and our youngest son was just an infant. One morning she came out of the house with the baby and open the passengers door and put the baby in the car seat. She put the diaper bag, and her purse on the floor, then closed the door. She walked around the Jeep, and there lye a Cow Moose on the ground, leaning against the front tire. Panic time.

She ran around the front of the Jeep, jerked the door open, unsnapped the seat belt, taking car seat, with kid attached and headed for the house. She went to screaming when she came through the door. Our teenager came running to her aid. She called her office to explain why she could not come in. Their reply was (Yea Right!) They did not believe her. The older boy, 15 at the time, took a Polaroid and went through the garage and took a picture of the Moose.

After two hours and the Moose not moving, the teenager went out a slipped into the passengers door on the Jeep. He started the Jeep expecting her to jump up, she just laid there. He backed the Jeep away from her and then drove it into the garage. She never moved. Wife loaded baby back into the Jeep, then left for work. When I came home two hours later she was gone.
