Quote:"Some local turkey hunters had a “once in a lifetime encounter” with two friendly deer"

"Leon Champine, an Indianapolis estimator, says he was hunting with his friends, Joe Pople and Corey Cook, when they first bumped into the deer at dawn. He says they stuck around for about ten minutes before walking away. The hunters then walked away and had a good laugh."

"Champine believes the deer were both around one year old. He attributes their friendliness to several things."

“I believe this is their first season without following mom around to teach them what is dangerous,” explained Champine. “I also believe that they were just simply inquisitive.”

There is amazing video at the link. I know they can be friendly at State parks, but I've never heard of anything like this in the wild.

I'm actually from that neck of the woods, and yup, they can be friendly. You mentioned State Parks Adde, I've seen them eat from peoples hands at Turkey Run State Park. In fact, that's a hell of a cool place.
