The Choke Cherries are Ripe :)
When the choke cherries are ripe, the mule deer show up. I was down there today with my crow call when I spied this one. He's gorging himself in preparation for mating season, and then the long winter ahead. The photos I shot aren't great because he's hunkered down in the thick stuff, and I can't run him out, even with my ATV. I got very close to him, so close that I was afraid he'd charge me. Finally, I decided to leave him be, as I've been charged before, and it's not fun.

Oh my god that's funny, but no. It wasn't that one. It was this one.

okay now go get the chokecherries he left behind and make me some jelly.

I've heard of people doing this, but you have to add a lot of sugar. I've tried eating the blackest ones, and even then, they're very bitter. I'm not sure how the deer can love them so much. I'll ask Alice(my neighbor) how to make jelly.
