Deer prefer to live on the edge of forested areas where they can find food and protection from predators. While in more rural environments, deer tend to eat native plants, corn, grains and alfalfa. In urban areas, their food source becomes your yard
and garden. They prefer younger, more tender plants over older woody ones; however, they will eat almost anything. If you have a mix of plants that they like and dislike, they will often trample the less preferred plants to get to the tastier ones.
