The two healthy-looking deer were on a path near the woods, a creek, and a residential area, eating grass together. They would occasionally look up curiously, then keep eating. They allowed me to get pretty close. I assume that they are young males, because they had short, velvety antlers. They ran into the woods when I got a little too close.
I am not sure of the elevation or trail mile marker for this observation.
