I finally figured it out!
10 years ago
You know how I was whining about the deer eating all my bird food? Well my Dad came up with something crazy like hanging the feeders up high in the trees on ropes that I could lower to refill them I have no trees close to my house. So, after 3 years of the deer eating all my birds food, I finally got smart *lightbulb* Took me long enough! I bring the feeders in the house  before the deer come! How come it took me so long to figure this out? I feed the darn deer but they just aren't happy with that. They want everything. Brian was out cleaning up deer poop (we have 2 dogs that poop in the woods) this weekend when I decided that the deer couldn't take everything. So far, so good! Oh jeeez, this isn't a deer message, just letting you know that I've figured out how to feed them both! *bird1* Rage

Hee hee hee!  Good for you!  I wonder if deer are like squirrels?  I put cayenne pepper in my bird seed and the squirrels leave it alone as they can't take the taste, but the birds don't mind at all...

Thats a great idea. I don't have trouble with deer, just raccoons, but if I do, I will try this. The deer are coming on to my property more often so they could become a problem this winter.
