Logs across trails

In our area there are many old logs where the animals have to jump even though there are trails that go around the logs. I was curious to find out how many deer go over the logs using the shorter route than walk around them as both trails are well used.

I found a good location on a slope where the animals would have to either jump the log going up or going down the hill, not thinking I would get any good photos of the animal in the air, but rather how often they would go over the log. It appears now that it's just a way of life for the animals and not a problem, unlike me, who always takes the easiest trail.
