<quoted text>Howdy Sundog. Been reading your planting adventures. I have a neighbor that is using things that makes noise around their garden. I've not asked if it works, but I've noticed a lot of strings with bells attached and tin pans along with plastic bags tied to limbs and string around a piece of land that used to look like a garden.
I've seen people use aluminum pie tins tied to the fence as noise makers. I think at first those things work, but deer are pretty smart and eventually they get used to the sound and ignore it. They're pretty crafty animals that seem to be up on most of our tricks....LOL.

I place motion sensitive toys near the window in the bird room because they would chew the framing if they began sitting in it. They eventually figure out the toy will not hurt them and I have to get a new one. Currently,Maddy's Furbie is standing guard.

<quoted text>Good afternoon, NorCal Native. It is strange how some animals will take in other animals.
Yep, sometimes I wish people would take a lesson or two from the animal kingdom.

Couldn't fawns drink formula? You know the kind they give to orphaned livestock? Sorry,city girl here.
yes; Goat or lamb formula works well. Around the middle of May is the 1st hay-cutting and several fawns are orphaned and raised by ppl. We ran over a fawn several yrs ago while mowing and its twin wasnt hurt but the mother wouldn't return to the other.My cousin raised it ,then in the fall it returned with other deer. I picked on him hard about butchering the little fawn ,telling him once you skin them you can't see the spots. I was just picking though I couldnt have killed it.

Right. I know that dogs and cats take in other animals, but I just wasn't sure about deer. Some animals will and some won't. Even within certain species, some mothers will take in orphans and others won't. I guess that is similar to humans.
I would agree......but humans could take some lessons from the animal kingdom in certain situations!!!

I agree, but I did run over a cat once that was flopping all over the road. It had been hit and it was obvious there was no way it was going to recover. I couldn't just drive away thinking it was suffering.

He kills the deer he raises in a pen? Doesn't seem fair at least the wild ones have a chance. Maybe that's why the adult dear turned nasty? They knew the guy was going to kill them.
Yeah, he had a permit from the state to raise deer. Not at all sure how that worked, but I remember when I lived in NJ, you could buy farm-raised venison in a restaurant in New Brunswick. So I guess they consider it like livestock or something.

I do too, but deer try to hide their fawns in tall grass, and you can't see them on a tractor. The worse are snakes ,when you grab a square bail of hay in the field too throw on the trailer and half a snake is sticking out! Scares you every time. Even though they are usually dead after going through the bailer.

<quoted text>I have a deer problem too eating flowers and food plants. I've even had a deer eat my roses one year. My neighbors use a spray to keep the deer away, but I don't like all those chemicals in on my food or soaking in the ground. We have well water and it is really good. It was so good that the man that lived here before I bought this place made moonshine using the water. I found the still in my basement and had some guys stop by and ask for the man. Never a dull moment at this place.:D

Liquid Fence's all natural Deer Repellent is designed to offer you year-round protection from deer and rabbits. Like all of Liquid Fence's animal repellents, our deer and rabbit repellent is proven effective at safely repelling deer and rabbits. Deer are constantly foraging for food, eating evergreens, shrubs and other landscape plants. If you haven't already been doing it, now is the time to start your regimen of Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent. When springtime bulbs poke out of the ground, they're like little signs that say “come eat me”. To keep your landscape safe, all it takes is a few minutes and our all-natural Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent.

I have used this for years. I live in the rural area with
A garden and many fruit trees. The deer would come
Into our yard and eat the tips of the trees in the winter.
They would rub on the tree trunks for making their
Territory. One year they ruined a peach tree and a apple tree. Found this and have used it for 8 years with
No problems. Spray around gardens and flower beds to keep rabbits out. This needs to be sprayed often. Maybe once a week. The one draw back is it smells awful. Do not get it on you. This can be found at most farm supply
Places. I think Menards has it or order from the Liquid
Fence company. I use concentrated and mix my own
And Use a hand sprayer to spray it.

Yea, I think that if people got as upset over baby animals getting hit as they do about human babies......maybe more would be careful when driving.....I mean we have invaded their home area and we need to learn how to share the space!!!

I understand that......I was mowing my back yard one year on a riding mower and the grass/weeds were so high that this snake had found a a place to sleep and I ran right over it and cut it like in 3 places......I felt bad, but it wasn't something I did on purpose!!!

We had a baby rattler on our walkway during the summer one year and when we tried to push it along with a push broom......it attacked the broom......eventually we got it to move on!!!
