Here is a sequence of images of a doe doing what deer will do; stand in the middle of a field between two major roads.  A common site on the prairies.   In this case the deer is in the middle of a new corn field on Vancouver Island.  A closer look reveals quite a surprise.

When we first came along mamma deer was laying down in the middle of this corn field.
