Write Home About Deer Friends

The Willamette Valley has so much to offer, especially some interesting neighbors. In Silverton, there’s a deer herd that likes to make its way around town. To the point that it makes for a natural stopping of traffic. Kids “ooooh,” and “ah,” while adults might be tapping their thumb on the steering wheel. And, still, other adults also have big smiles on their faces at capturing a beautiful moment when nature intersects into their daily routine. Perhaps it’s a little perk when you drive home and find some deer smack dab in the middle of your yard…looking up cautiously and wondering what the lights and fuss are about from your vehicle. You may want to write home about deer friends!

Deer Sightings in Your Neighborhood?

Have you ever noticed a cute little furry creature munching on some of your lovely roses? Sometimes people think they are a nuisance, while others adore these creatures and find them a fun addition to the neighborhood. When has there been a time you’ve spotted a deer near your home? Or, out and about on errands? These little sights from nature are just one of the many things that add to the character of our gorgeous state. We’d love to see your photos of deer! Just @BSTRealtyLLC on Instagram for a chance to show your neighborhood deer off…perhaps they’ll become even more famous!

If you’re looking to deter deer from your home, then choosing plants they don’t think are very tasty is a good start. Or, possibly getting a fence that is higher than a deer can jump. There are also scented sprays that deer smell and don’t like too much. If you’re looking to attract deer, then putting out a few apples would most likely do the trick, however, who knows what your neighbors will think! There’s plenty of vegetation for deer to eat anyway in the lush Willamette Valley.

Whether you’re a fan or perhaps would like the deer to mosey on through elsewhere, your neighborhood is a special place to observe the wondrous wildlife of the Willamette Valley. If you’re looking for a neighborhood that’s more deer-friendly or one that may be a little less teaming with wildlife, give us a ring. Let’s figure out the perfect type of home for you and your family.
