We have finally been seeing lots of deer skirting the edge of the field behind our house. They keep breaking through the snow and stumbling around. We are getting a few more inches today. I wonder if they will be out this afternoon? We haven't really seen any for most of the winter.

I've noticed a bunch around too. I'm just pontificating, but I bet they're moving around more in search of food. In fact, every evening I've noticed two or three herds with 15-25 deer each, and a bunch of loners moving around. Could it be the DNR is actually correct when it says there are still too many deer for the carrying capacity of the land?

Could they be moving around because there are more mouths to feed than the available food can provide?
