Deer in town?

We're squarely in the middle of our small college town, not out in the suburban and exurban habitats that white-tailed deer have populated in recent decades. 

(And, through overpopulation, they've become downright pests, too, through much of the Eastern U.S).

But it's hunting season, and maybe these does were taking refuge. They enjoyed munching on winter annuals (chickweed and henbit), investigated my containers, checked out the main vegetable garden (largely empty this time of year, except for sorrel and leeks), and then were away.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
