Q.Are Taxus Yews targets for Deer during the winter?

My Yews lost most of the needles during the winter, but the tips are still green. Is this from deer or is this ‘winter burn?

It could be winter burn, depending on the variety that you have chosen. Alternatively, if your area remained wet for too long, it could be a fungal infection. A photo will help me to confirm one way or another. Please include a photo, and I will be more than glad to take a look and see what is going on.
