Do you feed her in winter?
Well i do see a deer hanging around in the summer too , but they change their colour a bit in summer , so i can,t be sure its the same one...There are lots of them running around on my land , and in the fields beyond , but two in particular come very close to the house...I am sure i could make friends with them , but as the hunters also come close to here i don,t want to teach them that humans are nice people , as it will lesson their survival chances....I must say it peeves me a bit that hunters can legally come on your land to shoot stuff , mind you , if i see them , i fire up the Harley , a quick blast of thunder through open pipes soon gets rid of any wildlife that might have been a target...
I don,t actively feed them in the winter , but i do throw my excess apples over the fence so that any hungry animals can have a chomp on them..

Male and female Roe Deer
Least Concern (IUCN 3.1)
Species: C. capreolus
Range of Capreolus capreolus
The European Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus) is a deer species of Europe, Asia Minor, and Caspian coastal regions. There is a separate species known as the Siberian Roe Deer (Capreolus pygargus) that is found from the Ural Mountains to as far east as China and Siberia. The two species meet at the Caucasus Mountains, with the European species occupying the southern flank of the mountain ranges and adjacent Asia Minor and the Siberian species occupying the northern flank of the mountain ranges. Within Europe, the European Roe Deer occurs in most areas, with the exception of northernmost Scandinavia (north of Narvik) and some of the islands, notably Iceland, Ireland, and the Mediterranean Sea islands; in the Mediterranean region it is largely confined to mountainous regions, and is absent or rare at low levels. Scottish roe deer were introduced to the Lissadell Estate in Co. Sligo in the Republic of Ireland around 1870 by Sir Henry Gore-Booth, Bt.. The deer survived in that general area for about 50 years before they died out and there are not believed to be any roe deer currently
