Mickgreen you are somewhat of a ruffian, I think. When I was still living by Mt. St. Helens and my ex hsuband(who I divorced over 22 yrs.ago) was a hunter, we ate venison, I was raised on it. I have lived here for over 22 years now and have not even thought of shooting a deer. It is illegal in town anyway..and I don't blame the deers for loving the roses, I love them too...but they should not eat them all the way they do and right when they are at their most tender ready to bud stage as well...I am trying some deer scram right now...tried marking it with my own scent if you know what I testosterone to speak there so it did not work. I have gay young man renting a room in my house from me..I asked him to mark it for me...apparently not enough testosterone there either....sigh.
