Deer Surprisingly Befriends A Deer Hunter

It would seem that the deer in Wisconsin are just super friendly.

When hunter Brian Powers was out hunting recently near Wausau, Wisconsin, he noticed a deer by a creek in the distance. But instead of running, the docile creature did something otherwise unimaginable - he approached the hunter and insisted on some head scratches!

Another interesting part about this fellow is that he had an orange scarf around his neck, probably put there to deter hunters from shooting the friendly creature. Both hunters and hikers often wear the color orange to warn other hunters that they are not animals, so as to prevent accidentally getting shot.

Brian says that the two chilled together for some 10 minutes before the stag eventually walked away. But then, Brian saw the same deer in the afternoon, and again he walked right up for some more scratches.

Powers has been hunting for 42 years, and claims he has never seen anything like this. However, another hunter in Wisconsin had a very similar experience earlier this year, though this deer appeared to be younger and the two locations were over 2 hours driving distance apart.

"This deer lives in the wild but is friendly toward humans and someone was smart enough to put the orange scarf around his neck to try to protect him," said Brian.

You just never know where you'll meet a deer friend of yours.
