A viral video posted to YouTube shows how quickly feeding one deer can turn into feeding the entire herd.

As he steps out his front door he is greeted by a buck, while stating “let’s see how quick the deer run to get to me.”

He begins to whistle and call additional deer and you can see them approaching the man’s house from a distance.  “Who’s hungry??” he calls to the deer.

The deer quickly surround the man’s home in anticipation of the feeding from the man’s bucket, presumably filled with apples and other treats for the deer.

While capturing this on video is very cool, this is likely not an isolated event.  The man in this video has likely been feeding this herd of deer for some time, judging by their comfortable demeanor with him.

Remember to always reference your state’s laws on feeding wild game before attempting anything like this.  Many of these laws are in place to keep people and animals safe and to curb the spread of diseases such as chronic wasting disease.
