Deer Browsing Patterns

Activity and paths
Deer trailThe key to keeping deer out of your garden is understanding their browsing patterns.  Deer are most active at night and at dawn and dusk, which explains why gardeners everywhere wake up in the morning to find devastated veggies.

Deer spend most of their active period hunting for food.  Each herd of deer wears well-trodden paths throughout their territory that link up key food sources.  As long as there's plenty of food along the paths, deer don't deviate much from them.
