The deer that live in town here are quite tame as well, with some pretty good sized bucks. Around the rut they can get quite cantankerous (and dangerous!). I had a large buck challenge me last year in my front yard - I hightailed it for the deck! He lowered his head and looked like he was going to charge, and even when I tried to shoo him away he kept coming towards me.
I know of quite a few towns that have city bucks hanging out with no fear what so ever. I have aslo seen quite a few mule deer that would go well over 200 points if only you could hunt them where they are located and the fights that go on when they shed their antlers is amazing.
WOW! That buck is huge. Looking @ the 1st pic I thought he had a growth on the right side of his face. In the next pic I could see it was a drop tine. Hopefully he won't be shot by a poacher.
Around here, the game commission has instituted an urban archery season in an attempt to cull over populated deer herds. Towns/cities can/must sign up to participate. May be an option where the deer herds have become accustomed to the urban environment & people.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
