Weird deer behavior?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I've seen the salt seeking deer of Pinto and Spring Lakes near Mineral King. They were licking salty camp gear at Pinto and lapping up urine at Spring. I've also seen a doe at Rae Lake in the Red Mountain Basin who preferred to nibble the browse that I urinated on.
