Deer making their way into Aberdeen

Posted: Updated:

Most people search the countryside to find some deer. Sherry Jung just has to look out her back door, and she lives within the city limits of Aberdeen.

"It's kinda neat. You're sitting here watching tv, and pretty soon you got deer moseying along, or they're just staring you, and their like, 'Oh I want some food,'" Sherry said.

Deer have been congregating at the Jung residence for years. They usually stop by at around noon or 5 p.m., and when they come, Sherry is no stranger.

"I don't know they just listen to me. They can smell the scent, so they know who I am," she said.  Some deer have been so brave that they hop on Sherry's deck to sneak some seed out of her bird feeders. When she scolds them, they listen. 

Sherry is strict about the deck, but not so much about the deer eating off seed off the ground. In fact, she even makes sure everyone is playing fair.

"If the big ones want to eat, and they won't let the little ones eat, I'll yell at them," she said.

The deer just seem to know they are welcome, and they take advantage of it. They only come around in the winter, but Sherry enjoys the wildlife. She also gets pheasants, possums and unfortunately the occasional skunk passing through her yard.
