I guess Missouri deer are just stupid

Went outside right before dusk to shoot my new remington 700 xcr in .223. In the middle of shooting groups, the deer below walked right out of the woods into my backyard, stood there and stared at me [?]. It didn't leave unti, believe it or not, I started shooting it with my cellphone camera. Truth can be stranger than fiction.

    Or maybe just curious. Until he gets chased by some hot lead intended for him/her. You won't have to go far.

    Hell a Match was stopped down at Camp Lejeune years ago because a deer ran out on the range not with one but over two hundred rifles firing. Couple dumb * shot deer to be funny. Match stopped so Wildlife officer could come and properly ticket the idiot that thought it would be cute. Lots a pissed off people that day.

    I drive a stretch a road in Missouri everyday before dawn and have seen deer run out in front of cars too many times(my own last year). They are not the brighest animals in the woods. Tasty, but not too bright.

    You would think that, but wait until November then you can't find them anywhere. Although, I will be looking mighty hard with my scoped out 30.06...[:D]!!

    Days are getting cooler and low temps at night....oooooh I can barely wait!

    Deer don't always do what you would think a deer would do.
    The road to hell is paved with COMPROMISE.

    The deer's not stupid. He's giving you the finger because he knows it not deer season yet.
