I was hiking along the bank of the Neuse River in Raleigh and came across a family of 3 deer. Rather than running away like every other deer I’ve ever come across these deer stood their ground. We ended up at a standoff. He wouldn’t back down and I couldn’t continue down the path with out him moving. He actually took a couple of steps towards me and I moved to put a tree between me and him just in case he went all, “Man vs Nature” on me. In the end, I got to take a bunch of pictures which was cool. Finally the mom and baby deer slowly wandered off and he eventually followed. I guess that means I won.
I don’t think those are happy stomps.
