It's kind of like when you visit your favorite all you can eat buffet style restaurant. You pick along here and there sampling a bit of this and a bit of that until you get to whatever it is you decide to fill up on, then you fill your plate and begin to get serious about eating until you have had your fill. On the way out, you pick up a bit of desert just to finish it off. The list of things deer eat is a lot longer than the list of stuff they wonteat.

Deer eat grass around my place all the time. In the woods, along ditches, any where that it’s nice and green...

What do deer eat, anyway?
In summer, deer eat leafy green plants, such as wildflowers and tree leaves. They are not cows, and do not eat grass. In winter, deer browse on the outer twigs of shrubs and trees -- about one cubic foot (30 litres) of twigs per day. Twigs, unfortunately, are mostly wood, and no matter how much they consume, they become malnourished. They depend on fat reserves to survive. If the winter is too long and severe, some of them die of starvation.
