In the scene where we see the deer standing in the woods, the animal wrangler brought the deer to the mark on a lead.. There was no food on set. The path in the forest was locked up. The trainer placed alfalfa on ground to encourage the deer to eat. On cue from production, the trainer used noisemaker to get deer to look up at camera.

After the deer is shot (off-camera), and we see the actor with the dead deer, production provided us with a receipt from the taxidermist who provided the deer.
