is there an elevation that is too high for deer?

I went scouting on a mountaintop of the George washington national forest yesterday. I was around 3000 to 3500 ft high. I noticed that oak trees were far and few between. Is it rare to find deer at these elevations since there doesn't seem to be much food?

the bigger bucks seem to prefer to stay just above the snow line they come down at night to feed and work their way back up in early morning

Yes
Out west here we have lots of White tails up to 8,000 feet and Muleys I have seen at above 12,000 feet. The low lands 4000 feet are better but you can find them every were. Evil!
