I used to do all the things
that they say deer will be scared away from
while hunting. eat meat
sandwiches, urinate from my tree stand, drive my 4
wheeler up and park in
brush behind my stand, go out in work clothes with

read in the last issue of Kitchen Gardener of yet another "sure-fire"
to try on the deer. It is to hang or stake into the ground sheets
fabric softener "Bounce" near the plants that the deer are feeding
are reported to dislike the scent and the sheets are said to be
months at a time, even after rains. Naturally, I've got little
staked all over the garden. Hope springs eternal.
