Nope I have an old doe that raises a pair in the front yard every year in a little sliver of woods along the driveway.
She made it through the season seen her yesterday eating my apples.
She is so gentle I think with just a little work she would come to cubes

Couple of days ago right by the house. Out in the open. Still wet.
We've got several does that have grown up right behind the house. I reckon their mothers probably do to. They often fawn right against our yard fence. I think they feel safer there than in the pasture with coyotes and pigs.

The bulk of them around here are on the ground, but you'll have to step on them to see them. It't the only downside to cutting hay in May

Just the one the dogs drug in the yard a few days ago. Couldn't have been more than a day old and I really think something else killed it. No insides from throat to back end and the dogs were only out 5-10 minutes before I locked them on the porch again for the night when they came dragging it into the yard.
I didn't really feel of it much, but it was still soft and pliable and no odor.
Oddly, when I got up to release the dogs next morning, the carcass was gone..
