Deer Gifts

Deer are widely distributed, and hunted, with indigenous representatives in all continents except Antarctica and Australia, though Africa has only one native species, the Red Deer, confined to the Atlas Mountains in the northwest of the continent. Deer live in a variety of biomes ranging from tundra to the tropical rainforest. While often associated with forests, many deer are ecotone species that live in transitional areas between forests and thickets (for cover) and prairie and open space. The majority of large deer species inhabit temperate mixed deciduous forest, mountain mixed coniferous forest, tropical seasonal/dry forest, and savanna habitats around the world.

Male deer of all species (except the Chinese Water deer who only have short tusks instead) grow and shed new antlers each year in this they differ from permanently horned animals such as antelope these are in the same order as deer and may bear a superficial resemblance.

Deer Feeder Tips

Deer Feeders: Tips to Allure Deer for Hunting and Backyard Deer Watching

If you're longing to watch those beautiful deer come in your own backyard, or you want to allure deer to a specific hunting stand, deer feeders are an excellent solution. Deer feeders play an important role in deer hunting and deer watching because they help allure deer to desired area. Here are some great ways to use deer feeders and tips for getting great results.

Watch Deer Swam to Your Yard

There's nothing more beautiful than to watch deer feeding in nature. If you live in a wooded area, you're in the perfect spot for deer watching. Place your deer feeder in your yard where you can see it from a window - perhaps a kitchen window or living area window. Keep the deer feeder far enough away were the deer won't get spooked, but close enough to enjoy watching them when they arrive. Some deer feeders have been known to attract entire families of deer. This is a real treat, and the kids will love it!

You can use a regular deer feeder or protein feeder, but be sure to mix in some corn or rice brand. If corn or rice alone doesn't attract deer to the area, try adding apples to the feeder and placing a water trough nearby as well. Water and food together are sure to get attention. Deer are also attracted to salt licks and peanut butter. You can try spreading some peanut abutter on nearby trees to create a trail to your deer feeder.

Keep a close eye on your deer feeder to make sure other animals aren't getting to it before the deer. If placing the feeder in a pasture where there are cows, use rice brand instead of corn. Cows usually will not eat rice brand. Also, use a feeder that's too high off the ground for the cows to reach, but just the right height for a large deer.

A Nature Photographer's Dream

If you are a nature photographer, deer feeders are perfect for capturing deer on film in their natural habitat. A feeder can be placed within a wooded area or in your own backyard. Be sure to place the feeder where you can snap photos without scaring away the deer. If you use a professional lens with an extra long zoom, you should have no problem photographing the deer from a distance. As long as the deer can't hear or see you while you're taking the photos, you'll be able to capture some great images!

Attract those lovely deer to your own backyard.
