Re: More deer damage


I grew up in a family where hunting was forbidden unless you didn't have another source of meat. We were instead taught about the familial relationships in nature. I still can't get used to the people who think killing is fun. It's different if one realizes that the target is a sentient being, but I've found that is rarely the case -- at least around here. I'm also finding that as I get older I'm less and less interested in eating meat at all.

I'd say the same for bear. Good if field dressed and butchered immediately, but bear fat gets rancid in a heartbeat.

Yeah, but so is [shudder] muskrat, which I've had a couple of times and hope I never do again.

It has to be cooked properly, then it's good. I don't know how to cook it, but I've had it at other folks homes and it was really good. And I'm not a big meat eater. If it's overcooked by so much as a minute, it's inedible
unless you're a Rottweiler.

Well... maybe. Problem is that venison is tough, stringy, and gamey. I've only known one person in my all of my life who though it was fit for human consumption--and he confessed to liking black angus a whole lot better.

If only market hunting of deer were allowed, this behavior could be stopped

Lobby for a depredation hunt in your neighborhood. Sounds like the deer
are overpopulated, starving & eating anything green.
Get a protective dog that will harass them & make your property
unappealing. Something like a Basenji that doesn't bark. (Although they do
make a yodeling sound, it doesn't carry like a bark.)

I looked out my window this morning to discover that deer have
just devastated the plantings in front of the house - things that
they have never touched before in the 38 years we have lived
here.  The dwarf Mugho pine has been stripped nearly bare.
In all the years, they have never bothered that before.  This
one is a replacement of the one we put in when we moved
here - that one, though dwarf, had grown too big for the space,
and had been damaged by a snow-plow.  We splurged on a
nice replacement about five years ago, but it had to be dug up
and replanted when the underground oil tank was removed.  It
had about recovered from that when the tree fell on it summer
before last.  Careful pruning had just about brought it around,
but now this.  I'm trying to think what could possibly replace
it that deer wouldn't eat.  Is there anything?
Then I walked to the other end of the house and looked out
windows there to see that my Rhododendrons there had been
stripped.  They were full of buds, but are now just sticks.  The
deer have sometimes nipped them, but never more than a bite
or two.  This is really distressing.  They had already eaten the
Mountain Laurel shoots that were trying to come up from the
ones the tree took down.
It's hard to know what to do now.
