I do not know about the "declining natural habitat" and what effect it has of 
deer being in the yard.
But I do know that deer love people and there population is many times higher 
now than when it was three hundred years ago.

In city/urban environments you can have deer populations as high as 70 deer 
per square mile, while in the "wild" the population might be 10 in good habit.

I am all in favor of returning the deer population to it's pre 1700s level!!!!
