It seems like deer are everywhere in Guilford County. The above photo is of one in a Greensboro backyard that is within the city limits. The deer are so bold that they actually go on patios to eat plants, especially tomatoes, fruit trees, and hosta plants.
It is hard to believe that deer numbered only about 10,000 in the North Carolina in 1900; since, now, there are well over a million in the state. From this North Carolina white tailed deer density map by county (here), you can see that the Piedmont region and the northern counties are the most densely populated with deer. It is estimated that Guilford County has 30- 44 deer per square mile. That is a LOT of deer. Last year, nearly 2,000 deer were harvested in Guilford County. Do you know of any local restaurants that serve it? If you are local, do they come to your yard?
