Chester County Deer Whisperer Wannabe Keeps Dreaming.


Here's a picture I took near my West Whiteland, PA neighborhood of a herd of deer a few weeks ago. Everytime I see some deer, I try to softly approach them to see how close I can get. You know, how Injuns do in the movies.

But I can never get really close. I honestly think that the way that I creep up, I'm going to be kind of like the Dog Whisperer but with deer. Then the deer are going to circle around me and we'll become friends. I might even get on the back of the leader - Staggs McCoy - and he'll take me for a ride.

"Hey Dr Zibbs. Can you teach me to train deer?"

"I can't teach one to train deer my friend. It's all in here." (points to heart then rides Stags McCoy away - jumping over a fence and disappearing from view).

It never happens though. They just run. Stupid deer.

Maybe I'll just chuck a rock at them next time.

Before you ride off into the distance, you should definitely do a song and dance with them.

You're going to hate me, but after a week of camping one time, I had one of the deer eating peaches out of my hand.

Dr Zibbs said...

Greta - I like your thought process.

Lisa - please don't lie on this blog.

Do you also yell out "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night" or is that on the BBC version?

Scope said...

Try sneaking up on them. Creeping them creeps them out.

Yes lame.

Try the peaches or salt lick thing instead.

Deers read blogs..and they know you don't like Schnautzers and other big fluffy dogs..so they don't trust you..in case you want to hung up their cute nose up the wall!

Dr Zibbs said...

Raf - you have me all wrong. I hate Snauzers but like the big fluffy Poruguese Water dog.

That'll show 'em! Stupid deer! Just like stupid birds.

I love seeing the deer up close to our patio! They are such beautiful animals.

The Indians weren't any quieter than we are, that's just some stupid urban legend. I'm part Indian, I swear, and I tried so hard to be quiet in the woods, but my husband just laughed at me.

Me and the old lady were sitting out in the hot tub the other night...naked. Yeah, we're like that, wanna be my neighbor? ;) Anyway I see a couple deer in the neighbor's yard, and all I can think is they're gonna run over here and try to get a drink out of the hot tub. Then they'll accidentally fall in and kick me in the nuts. Yeah, have I ever mentioned my fear of all animals bigger than me?

Bluez said...

West Whiteland huh? I wonder if you're my next door neighbor who doesn't talk to me. Are you the guy who lets his two big dogs crap in my yard ?

Dr Zibbs said...

Bluez - I don't think we're next door neighbors but if you let me know where you live I'll gladly bring my dog over to poop on your lawn.

Is that what you're asking?

Bluez said...

haha thanks but I have enough shit to deal with.
