Either one would be welcome in our area.  In Westchester County, NY there is 
NO hunting allowed, and sometimes it seems the deer outnumber the people.  
Folks who lived in towns used to laugh at the complaints made by those of us 
who lived out of town (real country doesn't exist here).  Now they are

I do know that there is some clandestine hunting with bows in the wooded 
areas near us, but surely not enough to make any difference.  The mild 
winters we have had lately haven't helped the problem, either.  Some people

almost impossible to fence.  We are just very selective about what we plant 
where - between the deer and the rocky terrain there isn't much room for
