Re: Putting the Deere's to work
I live in 1950s suburbia, being lots of about an acre each, lots of mature trees too. In the past 10 years, there are more and more deer here. Our neighborhood herd is likely to be about 20 or so, with the fawns just now losing spots.
No real food plots here, although my neighbor's garden plot looks a lot like Gitmo, what with all the electric fencing he's had to deploy.. They are selective on what trees they browse on but go right after my Hostas and Hydrangeas. The Hostas are about 3 inches high and the best I can get from the Hydrangeas is about 18 inches. Oh, they seem to enjoy the scent of all of the deer repellents that I've put out there.
Gee, maybe I should try the food plot route. But I think the neighbors would be at my door with torches and pitchforks.
