Tall Grass, ferns and other vegetation that has been compressed.

Mostly tall grass in the winter.

Along with the others... Swampy areas, clumped trees. In more open areas such as in the tall grasses, a dead giveaway is the flattened grass.

Volvox. my favorite Chlorophyata with the cute daughters. Bedding choice also depends on temperature, wind velocity and moon phase.


Does the deer have any doe? Yeah, two bucks.

I always seem to find a lot of bedding near corn fields. Like Linn said, tall grass is the most common I would believe.

I live in Michigan so deer bedding is everywhere you look.

If you're in the NW USA, look for meadows or grassy patches in the middle of brush. They like to be within running distance of cover.
