    Default Oh dear! the garden eater!

    This dear thinks that my poor garden is his restaurant! He is so bold, that I can walk up 20 feet away from him and take a picture before he decides to leave! Oh, and before he leaves he snorts at me.

    Sounds like its time for loud noises. But don't take my advice. I'm a city boy and knows more about chicken maternity than on how to scare away deer who snort at humans.

    Bold and Brassy that is the way those youngsters act today. Can't do a thing with them, have you tried the hair thing around the property. Have to get in good with a hair dresser. Great pic he is a beauty. Makes you want to reach out and shoot the little sucker. YUM Venison steaks on the grill.

    I'm with Cin on this one! A nice rifle, and a good close shot! I love venison. Although you could also have the hubby ah.... sprinkle the grounds if you know what I mean

    You guys! It is pass dinner time and you shouldn't be thinking of food.
    I have a friend Tony, who is a hunter and he comes here about once a season, but they always disappeared for that occasion. Some times when I see them in my garden, I run out of the house screaming like a wild woman and that always works. Kinda fun to do that!
    I like the idea of sending my hubby to mark territory. "Honey, I think we need a little more here".

    Mmmmm venison roast on the hoof. They are so overprotected out here that they have started dying from disease and hunger. They walk down the arroyo behind my house and completely ignore me and my neighbors. If we shout they just look at us and continue grazing. I use Zoo Doo to keep them off the better plants...

    Zoo doo, Diane? Just how do you collect it?

    Ania, I think he's beautiful. I love his teenage boy coming-of-age antlers!
