What is this?

Let me apologize in advance but I can't find any other place to ask about this recent problem. These have recently been popping up all over my back yard. I step in them and the dog wallows in them. I can't do anything about it until I find out what's to blame. They look like pellets too big to be from a huge rat. The rain has melted these somewhat. I don't think they are goose or duck. It must be a nocturnal varmint because these only turn up in the morning. This morning I counted 5 in a 10' by 10' area. I know this is gross but I'm serious. I was hoping somebody would have the poop on these (excuse the pun).
My wife says I have to do something about the ones near the flower bed.

Deer scat? You might post on the wildllife forum to see. Are shrubs or trees being browsed and eaten?
