The Fabled (Some Say Mythical) Blue Deer

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

I have heard all the stories about the fabled (some say mythical) blue deer.

Boy Scoutmasters Virginia wide get the question a lot:

Does it exist?  Is there really a blue deer?

Well, I can tell you, campfire stories abound.

The next thing we'll see here are the researchers, with their night-vision goggles, thermal cameras and weird screeches at night trying to entice one into the open to get a glimpse of Virginia's "squatch."

And then there will be the TV show of the same.

The Northwest will be proud!

Personally I have never seen a blue deer.  And I have never spoken with anyone who has.

Sure, the stories abound.  But does the blue deer bound?

Then today, today!, while investigating a house in Northern Virginia, I ran across this.

There, for all to see, finally, is sure evidence all have waited to see.

Evidence of the blue deer.

I am not familiar enough with the species to know if this evidence is from adult or fawn, male or female.

But it is evidence nonetheless.

So now, I say to all you naysayers, especially in the Northwest, with your "videos," and "TV shows," (but no evidence) of "researchers," well, I have solid proof!

No doubt living in the thicket nearby, this deer did not come out to see me.

The fabled (some say mythical) blue deer knows which animal is the most dangerous in the forest, um, suburbs.

Tom - I am VERY good at getting young Boy Scouts up at night for a rousing snipe hunt!  Then, in the morning, send one over there for a bacon stretcher, and another further over there for a smoke changer.

We try to keep them away from the poison ivy at night though...

Jay, I remember my first scout camping trip very well. I spent 2 cold miserable hours on a snipe hunt. It is funny now but I was mad as Hell back then. We were at the Scoutmasters farm in rural Eastern North Carolina. I can to this day 50+ plus years later take you right to where I spent those 2 hours. LOL

Tom - my first scout trip I was sent early Saturday morning across a huge field to a tree on the other side of a farm next to the camp.  You could see the tree in the distance.  They told me that a bacon stretcher was hanging on the other side.  And to please get it for breakfast.

Funny, there was nothing there...

I'm not sure how to respond to that Pete!  How about ... congratulations?!  Enough of that and you might become legendary too!
