I agree. We live smack in the middle of the White Mt. Nat'l. Forest
and have deer and black bears (among other creatures) on our property
all the time.....our flowers & vegs. are never touched....not even
our cultivated blueberries. We don't know why and figure that there
is enough in the woods for the deer, bears, moose and racoons,etc.

The deer enjoy grazing in the field across the street and, again,
leave the gardens alone. Maybe we have been exceedingly lucky but
I know people who live in the 'village' who have to cover most
everything....not enough choices on the menu in town?
