You seem to ignore those who live in urban, not rural, areas that are now 
overrun by deer.  I'm not very urban, but I lived here 15 years before we saw 
a deer.  Now there is a herd living in the neighborhood.  It is not a matter 
of choosing to live in a rural environment and then complaining about the 
wildlife - the wildlife has invaded the urban areas. I just try to cope by 
planting things they eata less of, which leads to some pretty strange 
landscaping sometimes.  Auralie
