The deer have beaten down trails through the woods, as they do each winter to make moving through the snow easier.
They have also been chowing down on any browse within reach. You can clearly see in this photo how they have nipped off ALL the buds and ends of branches within their reach. They will be looking forward to Spring and a more varied menu. And the trees, too, will be breathing a sigh of relief. Although such heavy browsing does slow them down.
