Deer as bad as ground squirrel?
Before we built we saw a deer trail running through our property. Now that our home is done, they still use it. Every evening they come through cautiously, and we will look out of the dining room window during dinner and they're out there looking right back at us. Yesterday morning, there was a deer party of five in my front yard at the edge of the woods near the driveway. They hung out until I had to leave to take my daughter to school. Do deer do any damage to trees or property and such? Is there any reason I should try to discourage them from coming around?
