This sleek doe regularly visits our yard, munching on grass and our little clover patch. I suspect her nice coat is partly a result of her healthy eating out of the garden. She has refined tastes for beans and lettuce, only choosing young tender plants. I suspect she also enjoyed more than a few grapes—can we blame her?
Is this a problem?
I doubt it. There are plenty of deer elsewhere. Despite her tracks in my garden all summer, I would miss her visits to our yard. And, I think Dan agrees.
