Re: More deer damage


I live for lamb! Now I'm trying to figure a recipe that will get DH to eat it. (Indian, perhaps?)

I grew up eating venison & like it a lot. Might explain why I'm the one in my family that likes lamb, reminds me of venison.

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 in its tracks.

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.
