    We have Black Tailed deer here. They are so people wise that the
    ones who live in and around Bellingham live in the neighborhoods and
    even travel down Whatcom Creek into downtown. I used to see them
    behind the restaurant at the creek and even on the Library lawn which
    is on the Civic Square with the Courthouse and City Hall.

    There's one resident doe in my neighborhood that brings each years
    fawns down into the yards. I've watched her cross a busy
    street with the fawn......AT A CROSSWALK......she uses it all the
    time. She pauses at the side of the road at the crosswalk and waits
    for the traffic to stop and then she crosses the street with the
    little one bounding beside her. She's done this for years. Last
    year she had twins. I have a neighbor who has a great tree in her
    side yard that she uses for a sleeping place nestled under the tree
    branches.

    what fun! We're not that far from you but our deer are mule deer. I
    guess because we have more desert and high mountain desert and you
    have deciduous (just guessing) forest as well as pine. We have a
    couple of deer that walk through at dusk and dawn when things are
    still pretty shadowy. The follow the creek bed and don't go downtown.
    With this year's fires, I'm assuming that we will see many more
    animals. We've already had a young bear in someone's back yard. I
    expect to see deer, elk, bear and mountain lion in the city.

    We have white tail deer around here, the middle of the Niagara
    Peninsula. I live in a rural area. Our block is almost one square mile.
    There are a couple farms and tree nurseries and three large woodlots. I
    walk the dog in the fields and bush behind our house and see lots of
    deer tracks, often very fresh. My dog follows scents and goes off to
    run. I rarely see the deer.
