I searched all over the internet and in stores for white lighted deer for my holiday yard display. I did not want the vinyl coated wire type as they are not visible during the day and they rust terribly (been there, done that). I found these at Home Depot and decided to give them a try. I did remove the red bows (I bought 2 does and a buck) because I read the reviews about the red fading onto the white. With that potential negative out of the way, I found these deer to be really beautiful...not only are they very visible in daylight since they are not just a bunch of vinyl coated wire, they are so beautiful at night and very easy to see even with my house sitting back from the road a good 100 feet. I combined my display with some miniature twinkle lights in the shrubbery around the deer and I recreated a very natural looking display. Instead of red bows that come on the deer, I used green pine boughs and artificial poinsettias...stunning and best part, since it's not so "Christmasy", I can keep them up through the winter and the snow even makes them prettier. I did anchor them to the ground as a good wind could've toppled them...still a very good buy in my book in comparison to similar products.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by poordeer DONT BUY THESE DEER FOR OUTSIDE
After many years of wanting deer in my front yard, I finally got several deer... Well, it rained and my poor deer look like they got shot during the night, and the glitter was all over the yard..... I was so disappointed and returned them back to the store. I will be looking for new deer this year... Don't waist your money on these deer unless they are for indoor decorations.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by kdm50 Very Disappointed after buying several of these deer!
When I first saw the 24 in cotton string lighted doe and the sleigh with the buck deer, I was very excited. I knew I would be purchasing several because the deer I currently had had finally bit the dust because I had them so long and had used them for several years. I bought 3 of the 24 in cotton string lighted doe, 1 cotton string deer and sleigh and 1 single cotton string lighted buck. My husband and I spent a whole day working to put all this together to have our Christmas decoration ready to turn the lights on Thanksgiving night. The box said they were for indoor/outdoor use. The day we put them up that night it rained and continued to rain all the next day. To my surprise when the rain finally stopped, I went out to look to make sure everything we had put up was still standing. What I found was the cotton string had come loose on all the deer and they were falling apart. One deer was so bad, I had to take it back to the store to get another one. Whomever design this did a poor job. For outdoor use, the cotton string should have been wrapped all the way around the frame of the deer. At this point, it is going to require me to fix all the deer in order to be able to use them next year. I paid a lot of money for these and it really makes me mad that in order to be able to continue to use them I am going to have to re-glue all the cotton string that has come loose. It will definitely be a job. I am very disappointed in this product.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Although they look beautiful, there is no way on earth they were made for outdoor use. It rained for 1 day and it literally "melted" the glitter is gone, the cotton strings that wrap it are hanging off and the red bow dye bled down the reindeer leg which is now completely red. Oh, not to mention the while sticky glue that's all over my lawn. It's going back to Home Depot tonight.
