We have a high population of white tail deer in our area and have 
more problems with them eating my shrubs that flowering plants like 
day lilies and iris.
They really did a number of a yew that was growing near my deck and 
browse the tips off my raspberry canes but appear to have left the 
other plants alone.
I have been growing iris, day lilies and hosta for about 4 years here 
and have lost more plant material to them stepping on them or lying 
in them.

Just north of Kingston in Eastern Ontario where I have not had more 
than 15 minutes of rain since June.
