Deer. They’re everywhere. And our relationship with them is, well, complicated.
Some of us love to look at them, take pictures of them, have them around.
Some people hunt them for sport or for food.
Some only see them as Bambi
Some hit them with their cars…accidentally of course.
Some want them as far away from their yards, crops, or gardens as possible.
Love them or hate them, they’re here to stay. But how much do we actually know about them?
That’s what today’s show is about. Deer. Everything from antler to tail. Starting with, what makes a deer a deer.
