                        Deer                       I’m shy and quiet and sweet and sensitive. When I’m alarmed, my
                                                   white tail raises which shows you why I’m called the white-tailed deer.
                                                   I’m faster and more colorful than any other deer species. I can adapt

                                                   Well, I said I was shy – but maybe I should be a little clearer. I’m shy
                                                   except when it comes to my ideal mate. He’s tall, somewhat dark;

                                                  How she describes her ideal mate:
                                                  Honestly, I haven’t figured out what the word “mate” means. And, from

                                  How he describes himself:
                                  I am a coastal deer! I’m the most common deer subspecies in the Pacific
                                  Northwest. You probably think I’m just a young buck. But, I’m much more
                                  than that. I’m a world class athlete! I can run faster than any human. I
                                  can jump higher than the highest Olympic athlete. Actually, I’m quite
                                  impressed with myself!

I want to thank the following people:

      Kelly McAllister, our Pierce County Wildlife Biologist, for answering all of my questions and leading me to the right resources for deer facts.

             Sam Argo, island resident, who talked me through his knowledge of the Herron Island deer and for his wonderful photographs.

                  Terrill Chilson, island resident, who provided the Herron Island Doe photo taken by her island visitor, Josh Bennett.

                       Dave Gromala, my co-worker, who helped me add a touch of humor to the date-a-deer dot com profiles.

                     Matt Setter, a wonderful graphic designer for his work on the date-a-deer dot com PowerPoint® presentation.

                                       Jeremy Cummings, a fellow van pooler, who provided me with song.
