As one spends considerable time interacting with deer they will be continually amazed at the depth of the social structure in the herd and their intelligence. Deer possess much greater intelligence than most humans give them credit for. Much of their actions seem to be based on this intelligence rather than instinct. They also seem to possess communication abilities that are outside of our range of hearing although biologists have never confirmed this possibility.
