    It's enough to make me cry. Short of getting a special deer damage permit, I've done just about everything I can think of. Going to go look at options at TSCo.

    Ideas?

    Dried blood works great. So does lead at high velocity.

    Dried blood an organic source of nitrogen ( 12/3/0). Price has gone up 3X since Mad Cow. Used to be bovine blood , now it's all pig/porcine blood. Small bags are $$$, get 50 lbers from farm supply places. $60-80 USD/50 lb.

    Sell the extra produce to Muslims

    It keeps off most varmints: deer , woodchucks, rabbits, even mice/voles. But it washes off with each rain. I sprinkle with some water first, for a sticker, then use a small cup to sprinkle on the fruits/veggies. If It don't rain lasts for 1-2 weeks.

    Otherwise high and/or electric fence.

    If you are rural, a bunch of outside dogs works too.

    I’ve tried everything. The only thing that works is either a bullet or a tall fence. I have 5 and 6 ft. tall fences around my gardens and they work well. But they ain’t cheap. I also have a suppressor coming. Draw your own conclusions.

    You do not need fencing.... just tall poles with some line / wire run between them about 2 foot apart. I have seen fish line work

    Maybe for deer. Won't help a bit for woodchucks, rabbits, mice/voles.

    I'm hoping to "recycle" all I've lost to deer this fall.

    Dogs work best for me and I planted a couple of blueberry bushes far away from my garden to send the deer over to the blueberries and not my garden.

    I also have a corn feeder down by the backstop of my range to get the deer comfortable coming to the backstop of the range.

    When I NEED to harvest a few of them, I'll go the blueberry patch or the range and shoot the little bastards. Can't stand deer and not really a big fan of deer meat either and I'm a helluva cook!

    The southeastern US is over run with the little sons of bitches...

    Slippy, you have wild porker problems too? Not up here yet.

    For the venison, process/clean it quick and cook it rare. Any sinew/grisile grind up into burger with some pork trimmings and spices.

    I have more problems with birds and tree rats/chipmunks with my berries than deer.

    Sounds like somebody might need to watch a frefresher on the Bambi movie.

    You can try blood meal, human hair also hang bars or pieces of ivory soap in a onion sack may help detour them.
