Those deer and their ancestors have been getting hand feed for many years. My huntin buddy from Mn use to raise Deer and elk so I was quick to caution everyone about the hazards....Like they listened :confused: They may look like Bamby but a front hoof can cut like a knife, the bucks are MUCH stronger than they look and know how to use the hardware on their head!! Not to mention the deer ticks and other parasites.
One thing I noticed while looking threw the pics though, The friendlier the deer the worse shape they where in? The first pick is a shy doe and fawn that would not get too close to us, she had a LOT better coat and fat reserve than the ones in the second pic.
