    I bought some lovely almost neon orange lillies the other day...I put the pot on my deck as I didn't have time to plant them right away - next morning all the flowers and buds were gone - either a deer or bunny nipped all the tops off. Deer also ate all the new shoots on my recently planted $75 dollar mulberry trees planted not ten feet from my front door. Not impressed. Oddly enough they are not bothering my peas or asparagus plants - guess they don't like veggies either.
    Too many deer here and no hunting to keep the numbers down. They sure look scraggly come spring after a winter of scant graze. From a boat offshore, you can see deer browse mark like a high water mark all along shore - all the undergrowth has been destroyed/eaten by overwintering deer.

    U should get a 22 rifle and a sniper scope to solve your problems
    A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
    do as I say, not as I do- William
    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

    the thought has occurred to me, but its pretty well populated around here. And if I did go that route, I surely wouldn't need a scope - I've had to chase deer off the property and they don't scoot til i get within 30-40 of them. I could pop them from the deck if I wanted.

    My deer are like your deer...they're so used to me yelling at them they just ignore me until I pretend to chase them.

    Now I am (carefully) chasing a large male skunk out of the yard when I see him...

    Hmm, I'm happy I have porcupines instead of skunks I guess. I can chase them all I want so long as I don't get too close. Skunks, well, yah, you would have to be a tetch more careful!

    I was kinda happy with finding a porcupine on the property - until I heard him chewing on my bunkie!

    AL10, Ive pondered whether or not I should post this, but here's a story from my 'checkered past'. lol
    oh well I caught my wife with another man and it cost me ninety nine on a prison farm in Georgia close to the Florida line.
    oh well I'd been there for two long years, and I finally made the warden my friend. So he sentenced me to a life of ease taking care of ol' Red.
    Now ol' Red was the damnedest dog that I've ever seen. He had a nose that can smell a two day trail, he was a four legged tracking machine.
    You could consider yourself mighty lucky to get past the gators and the quicksand beds (sticks part). But all these years that I've been here ain't nobody got past Red.
    oh well I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter to my cousin up in Tennessee. Oh and he brought down a blue tick hound and she was pretty as she could be. oh well they penned her up in the swampland 'bout a mile just south of the gate. And when I'd take Ol' Red for his evening run, I'd just drop him off and wait. oh now ol' Red got real used to seeing his lady every night. oh so I kept him away for three or four days and waited till the time got right. oh well I made my run with the evenin' sun and I smiled when I heard 'em let Red out because I was headed north to Tennessee and ol' Red was headed south.
    oh now there are red haired blue ticks all in the South because love got me in here and love got me out!
