Groups of 2 or 3, to 5 or 6. I didn't see any that were alone, so there were no doubt a lot more just out of sight. Nowhere near as famous, (or as big) as the Lake Of The Ozarks, Pomme De Terre is surrounded for miles around with forests, with hardly a house in sight. Viewed as sort of an "undiscovered gem", it hasn't been built up as the tourist trap that the Ozarks is. There are a very few resorts around, several large camping areas, and a lot of recreational boating and fishing. Like the Ozarks, it's frequented by mostly Kansas City people who've found out about it. For the life of me, I can't imagine why they named it that. John
Wow! That is a lot of deer in one close area! Were many part of a herd?

I played down in a remote resort area last weekend. It was near Lake Pomme De Terre, (which happens to be French for Lake Potato). There are miles of highway with nothing but thick forest along both sides. I knew there might be deer out and I was so right. Going nowhere near the speed limit, within one or 2 miles, at about 2:30 AM, I counted more than 30 deer within a few feet of the highway. It was about an hour and a half from where I live. John
