In my area deer eat grass all the time. One of their main food sources if its close by and it usually isn't hard to find.

I guess it depends on what you call grass. Clover and alfalfa are a deer's favorite. I dont know if they would eat the grass in my lawn. I guess it depends on what is available.

No kidding! "Deer dont eat grass", where did you come up with that!!! Thats halarious!!!!! I can you to alittle village in the middle of Clark and Jackson County Forest in Central Wi and prove to you that deer eat grass. They are in peoples lawns eating grass all the time. And no people are not feeding the deer because its illegal to feed deer in WI. But we can bait them.

I've spent many hours in a hay field. Deer eat grass. They love clover, alfalfa and oats.

They're not cows but do have a multi chambered stomach and chew their cud like cows.
