Deer in your area enjoy new-growth leaves and twigs of several shrubs, including bitterbrush, buckwheat, ceanothus (redstem and snowbrush), cherry, dogwood, elderberry, mountain ash, mountain mahogany, sagebrush, serviceberry and willow.

Tree foods also include the tender leaves and fruits of apple, chokecherry, and crabapple; and the green and freshly-fallen leaves of aspen. Planting one or more of these favorites is sure to attract local deer.

Enjoy!
