I was feeding the deer in front of the house last year and made himself a home. He did come back this year, but I only feed him in the woody area only.

The grand kids call him Limpy. Both of his front feet are in bad shape. He walk only on three. He comes every night around this time to eat the corn and topped with molasses.

They get to be pretty tame. My father started feeding them years ago and had a whole herd standing there in the evening waiting for him to put out the feed. It's amazing how many of them have bad ankles and legs. I've watched them get hung up in fences while they were jumping over them. I guess it happens more then we would think.

That deer might have bluetongue disease.  Not contagious and transmitted by biting insects.

The deer's toenails get infected and sore to the point that they can't walk.  Walking is painful and the animal just lays in one spot. Doesn't eat or drink.  It may die from dehydration, starvation or fall victim to prey. 

If you harvest a deer you can tell if an animal has had this disease by looking at its toes.  The toenails will look split, cracked or layered.  Can't vaccinate wild deer but penned animals can be vaccinated against this disease.

BTW those are some cool pictures.

I have one at our Virginia mountain cabin property that has been sleeping under the deck since a youngster (showed up on a trail camera I use to monitor the cabin.) I'm under strict orders from my granddaughter not to shoot this one. Unable to tell so far if it's a doe or buck (should know that answer this year.) Any downside or damage likely to result from allowing this "squatter" to keep on keepin' on?

None if its a doe and only the rut for a buck.  Friend raised white tail deer in a pen.  They would eat out of your hands.  But once the bucks loose their velvet on their antlers he would carry a cattle prod just in case on attacked him.  Another friend also raised white tails.  When one of the bucks was young he use to grab it by the antlers and wrestle with it.  When the deer became a mature buck the deer penned him against the fence ramming a brown tine into his leg.  He had to beat it with a board so he could get out of the pen.

not sure I would agree with that Chris.

I got a deer a couple years ago that had hooves rolled up like a munchkin from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I didn't think EHD curled the hooves.
