Black-tailed Deer

Deer are common in Burns Bog. Just like humans, animals like to take the easiest walking path whenever they can. There are some old wood-chip roads in the bog that make great pathways for humans and animals alike. When humans come around, the deer have no problem jumping off the road into the bushes, sometimes leaping over big ditches and tall vegetation. We like to think that we are pretty clever as humans, but there’s no way we could catch up to those deer as they bound off into the bog. We’d likely end up in the ditch!
