Deer at a Squirrel Feeder

While the Colorado Division of Wildlife and the good citizens of that state do their best to thwart a massive winter die-off of deer and elk, the whitetails of the Midwest continue to stave off starvation...by visiting backyard bird and squirrel feeders.

This video clip was sent in by a friend who fastens an ear of corn to a bungee cord, then suspends the bungee from a tree limb or wire. The device is meant to do double-duty; feeding the area squirrels AND amusing my friend, who laughs at their antics as they jump up, grab the ear corn, and get a free ride as they feed.

Of course, squirrels aren't the only visitors to the bungee feeder, as the clip shows. Need proof that whitetails will abandon caution if they're hungry enough? Click the "play" arrow and enjoy!
