Well, I thought the deer were gone for the most part. Until Sunday night. We had a quick skiff of snow that evening, and right before I went to bed, I took a look outside my kitchen window. There I saw 4 deer grazing not 100ft from the house. I opened the door to scare them off, and in the process saw another 3 run down the hill with them. Looked like mostly does, and some smaller ones.
That was very surprising to see that many already. Our local farm and garden guy on the TV said that now that they’ve eaten up all the acorns, they’ll be grazing. I didn’t get a chance yesterday to see if they messed with any of my trees or plants.
So, perhaps the hope of reprieves from deer raids this year was just a pipe dream.
