Oh, Deer!

Ray and Jolene presented us with a cornstalk-style feeder and 6 bags of field corn while at Lumberjack Days. We positioned the feeder in the yard northwest of the house, hoping to attract some interest from our forest creatures.  This past Saturday, Scott placed the trail camera on a nearby fencepost so we could discover who had been nibbling on the niblets!
Three small deer made quick work of the corn sprinkled on the ground and the cobs placed on the lower skewers. 
This photo was snapped at 5:17AM Sunday.

The deer on the left seems to be rather chatty.

This larger deer showed up later this morning but didn't seem too interested in the remaining corn.  We'll have to restock and see what happens next!
