QUESTION

Two strange things about this post I want to share.

First, I have taken photos of Whitetail standing on their hind legs fighting. But, I have never seen a Whitetail stand for this long and eat out of a deer feeder, like it was a goat reaching up to some leaves.

Second, there is NO corn or protein in this feeder. This is my bird feeder in our backyard. Yes, I am using a deer feeder, but it does great with milo, sunflower and other bird seed and requires much less care.

I really didn't know that deer would eat milo and sunflower seeds with such a passion. I have a corn/protein free choice feeder set up about 500 yards from this feeder.

Jason,

Because I do alot of bird photography as well as whitetails, I have a lot of bird feeders around.  The main one by my barn was getting emptied far too regularly and there were deer tracks all around.  Put the camera out and sure enough,  I had one doe (the same doe), that came every night and just hammered it.

She had to stand on her hind legs the same way.  I'll try to find the photo
