haha! That is the truth and then some. I hunt 250+ acres and about 200 of it is grazing/hay pasture. Luckily for me, I have two different entrances I can use to access my property. If you only have one, good luck!
If cows see you coming, they are naturally curious. I can't tell you how many times I have been up in a tree with 50+ head of cattle at the base of my tree. MANY MANY times I wanted to come home with a side of beef instead of venison.
Here's what I recommend if they approach you, sit as still as you can. DO NOT make eye contact w/them. Slowly, and I mean REALLY SLOWLY, after about 20+ minutes, they will one by one, begin to move away. Typically the calfs are first to go, then the hefers are next.
Don't worry though, deer are used to cattle. They are used to seeing them out there, they are used to the cows many noises (including sneezing) so they won't spooke them.
