Storytime #4: Oh, Deer – An Island Sized Pandemic

July 13, 2021

By: Lee LeFever

I write books and run a company called Common Craft. I recently moved from Seattle to a rural island. Here, I write about online business, book publishing, modern home construction, and occasionally, dumb jokes.

Storytime is a series of brief videos focused on a single idea relating to my work and/or personal life.

Something is killing untold numbers of deer where I live. The mystery was recently solved. This story first appeared in my newsletter Ready for Rain.
