If you zoom in on the people they look way too big compared to the deer. They look really out of place to me

pic was taken in a winter deer yard !!!! the deer are not domesticated animals but hungry ..when deer are hungry they loose all fear of humans up north ..in 2007 we lost 65% of our deer because of the biggest snow accumulation in the last 20 years ..if i would go back to the same place in the fall to hunt my chances of seeing those deer would be nil ..

pic was taken NORTH HATLEY QUEBEC .hunters putting out feed for the deer ,we have lots of snow ,the deer are hungry and have calmed down ..

the food that we feed them is Purina 5644 deer feed ..

i hope i cleared some of your questions ...Hey, don't shoot the messenger

In Ontario and that is even southern Ontario where I am, the deer yard up and it is not uncommon to see deer on the snowmobile trail.the concentration of deer in Northern Ontario will even be more considering there is only a few places they can get food on a hard winter.
Here there might be a couple of dozen of them or more together and they get used to the machines. They are not domesticated but they know when the hunting season is over and understand the importance of being together for food and preventing predation.
Same thing with the wild turkeys. You can almost run over them 2 weeks before the hunt but try and locate them during the hunt is another thing.
That deer picture is not uncommon to see on the trails. Maybe not that many but in a group.
I hunt a 200 acres farm where in early spring they are still together and the farmer often counts at least 60 deer on his front yard.

Well, we don't have 3 millimeters of snow down here, much less 3 feet, so I don't think I have to worry about the deer starving or eating out of my hand. What if it snows that much during hunting season up there? What happens then? Do the deer still eat out of your hands then?
