Deer Munchies

Jim Sollecito

Fall is 'bulk up' time for deer.  You think they wreak havoc in spring and summer?  Fall is the peak of chow down time.  But you can do something to pull the plug on the gravy train in your back yard.  Jim has some ideas about how you can turn the herd around and keep them away from your plantings.

Oh Deer

Question: Name a woodland creature that will leap a six foot chain link fence in a single bound to get to that luscious-looking vegetable garden on the other side but will not leap a four-foot slat-sided fence through which it cannot see.  If you said 'hippopotamus,' please review your field notes more thoroughly before attempting our next quiz.  If you answered 'deer,' you are correct.  Deer are smart - but you can outsmart them.  Here's how.
