Obtaining special permission to kill a deer
It's been a good year for our
garden and the deer damage has been minimal. We're pretty sure most of them in our area make a point to steer clear of the deterrents
which keeps them away from our valuable vegetables, but we continued to have a night
time nibbler that snuck in during a power outage and figured out the clanging
deterrents are all bark and no bite.
Even though the damge was
small, we both got a little spooked because we know how fast these
animals can ruin a garden.
"Call up the Game Warden and
get a special permit to kill that *#+%er!" is what Anna said after some
research on the internet.
We got a special
permit to kill a deer out of season, but it only lasted 10 days. Anna
spent about 20 hours hunting for a chance to shoot one without any
luck. Hunting may be a fun way to pass the time, but it's not very
productive unless you get lucky or have years of experience. We'll
continue to use these mechanical
deer deterrents because they work without as much time or money
