Fishing for Deer


(Central Virginia)

I strung heavy duty fishing line about waist high through the trees in a circle around our property and hung pieces of yellow plastic tape on it just so we could see where it is. I covered all their paths, and left very few open places, the driveway being one. So far no deer have entered the yard as far as I can tell, nothing that they usually eat has been eaten. They usually eat my azaleas, daylilies, mimosa trees, tulips, rose of sharon and all my vegetable garden plants. If this continues to work I'm going to tell everyone I know!

Ijust did the same thing only not around the whole yard but by the plants they eat. I think the deer thought it was an invitation to a new restaurant. They ducked under the string and ate the azaleas.

Good idea

This is a good idea. Just be careful no one is going to be 4wheeling oor anything like that around there, you could kill someone.
