I'm with you.
There is enough food for the deer outside of the Town of Lunenburg, so they don't tend to wander into town these days, which is fine with me.

I'm not sure but believe we might be on a traditional route used by the deer to get from one densely forested area to the South to a riparian park to the North. At various times I've seen a male with a set of antlers and an aggressive attitude and, several other small groups of maybe females and youngsters.

Our neighbourhood is new so the habit might be still engrained in their brains.The park has some open areas with grass, some old trees and a stream. I was told that deer do not drink instead get the moisture they need from what they eat. Maybe that's why they seem to go after the new growth.

I have to redesign my fence because they seem to be coming down a rock wall, snacking and then climbing back out. I thought the wall would be a natural barrier but not so.

You might change your attitude and tone If they come in grazing through your garden and munch off the hands of the flowers and just pull some other plants from the ground and leave them to die Just after your wife has just purchased and planted them, or half destroyed your tomato plants, and taken huge bite out of the tomatoes themselves and then just leave them on the ground.

And that's after you put up some fencing and/or protection to try and save them from doing so.

Another sunny day and 19C. No rain. Sure has been sunny weather considering the dire warnings of rain in the forecast.

I am told that deer are creatures of habit, and like to feed at a known spot.

True, Patrick. For some reason, the deer like the hostas and the yew tree in our front yard, and leave the back yard alone ................ which is where I plant my tomato and pea plants. So far, so good.

16C with clouds rolling in at just past 10PM. Hopefully, these clouds will bring some rain tomorrow. We shall see.
