It sounds more like squirrels to me.  The squirrels in our yard bury their nuts for the winter and then go back when they need them and dig them up. They stay more in flower bed areas in our yard.  I have some flower pots that they tried to take over to bury nuts.  I had to put rocks on top of the soil in those pots to keep them away. Moles make small holes too and stay in the yard area more.
I would put up a trail camera..............might be real interesting as voles & moles also dig for grubs.............then when you have comfirmed them use grub control on your lawn.  When you control the grubs, some are japanese beetles, that you can control the digging in the lawn.
