First Deer of 2012, and Why is the Snow only Melting There?

Yesterday, we had some visitors:

A doe and her two yearlings.  Probably the same ones that came by last year, but all deer look the same to me.

I didn't want them to leave, so I grabbed some apples and tossed them to them.  A few days ago, my sweet grandmother-in-law had given me about 20 lbs of apples that she had in cold storage over the winter, so I grabbed the mushy ones for the deer.

Here's a question.  This patch of grass is just feet away from our house.  It's always bare....snow melts there really quickly.  Why?  We do have a well, and also a septic tank.  Could this be from one of them?
