Wow, that is interesting, no idea that there was such a thing as a "deer yard" until now. I googled it and I saw tons of pictures with massive quantities of deer together.
Interesting too that the bear frequent that, makes lots of sense!
Hoping to get a black bear tag here in MN during the next couple years.
