    By chance, is this picture at the Thomas Knob shelter?
  2. #2 Jumpstart
    Yes it was, right before a MONSTER thunderstorm. I was amazed at how close the deer would let you get!

    When I was there July 4th weekend she had a fawn that kept it's distance. Momma had yet to teach it the art of begging I suppose. Nice shot.

    great photo Jumpstart...did u know there is a male JumpStart?
    he thru-hiked (i think 1998 or 99) & parachuted to the top of Springer to start his hike.

    see you UP the trail!

    a photo of the "other" JumpStart is on the Model-T website:

    I want to thru hike in a few years. This is one of the things that I think the AT is all about. It looks like such a nice moment. Great pic!!! -Walkin Wally
    This will be one of my favorites on Whiteblaze.

    Re: Very close encounters with deer
    I have fed supposed wild deer by hand in Maine and in North Carolina and was within a foot or two of a fawn in the Shenandoahs. While it is very interesting from the hiker's point of view, it's a very bad thing from an ecological perspective as the deer get to depending upon humans for food and stop fearing them, which means unnaturally large harvests during hunting season.
