If you can find four deers, it would be up to you if you want to shoot them or not :)

I could shoot them, it would depend on how hungry I am.

I could shoot four shots of whiskey, but Im not sure if a shot gun shell is filled with buck shot, or buck shots.

So four deer(s) poop in your yard. Is it deer poop, dears poop, deer's poop, or dears' poop ?
The moral majority, is neither.

Nah, you're pluralizing a verb (poop).  Deer poop in your yard, leaving deer poops.  ;D

 Q: What is that all over the yard?
 A: Deer poop.

 Q: Who (or is it whom) does that poop belong to that is all over the yard?
 A: That is the deer's poop.

Both of these are probably wrong :'(

Is NOT a verb! I can't step in a verb.  :P That was multiple poop from multiple deer.

To poop is a verb.

The product of that action,( the poop) is a noun.

A person has pooped.

A person poops.

Can there be a lot of poops?

If you ask me it is all a bunch of s***.
