    flattened earth ,sleeping deer ?

    just in from an uneventfull mooch about my permission, i came across 3 seperate areas where on bare earth the ground was flattened as if a large animal had been lying down, there were about 5 feet into the ride away from the trees , no tracks or droppings, whats your thoughts ?

    i only stalk roe so can only answer for what i know .i know roe leave this clear(couch)area i usually find them in good thick cover to give protection from elements or on elevated ground usually somewhere that gets good amount of sun and allows deer to see hear any predators approach but i cant see why this would be any different for other species
