A few comments on the comments: 1) The various urine and human hair scents only work until the first good rain, then need to be replaced. 2) The favorite food of the deer in the winter is the shrubbery, in the spring it's tulips, and in the summer it's anything in the garden. Fruit on the fruit trees within 7 feet of the ground is fair game too. 3) When I flip on the yard floodlights the deer smile in thanks. It helps them see the food better. 4) The 30-0-6 would work, but there is an ordinance concerning ordnance. Anyway, around here you would go broke buying ammunition.
