The trail is part of a crop field, but it also winds through a wood lot and enters woods. While he enters the woods and smells the spring beauty he surprises a group of deer halfway through the woods. The deer look at him anxiously and nervously. Weeks talks about how he interacts with the deer and how they are acting when they see him.</p><p></p> Tue, 29 Apr 2014 17:03:51 +0000 John Weeks 55016 at http://wrvo.org An Episode With Deer Reading the Message http://wrvo.org/post/reading-message <p>This archived broadcast was from September 11, 1987.
