Deer Depredation

I live on a small farm on the eastern edge of south central Kentucky. One of our fields is banded on tow sides by forest, and there are two ponds and a little stream meandering across our pasture—deer heaven.

I gave up the fight and learned not to plant corn or soybeans in that field! Also, when I put out hay for our small cattle herd, I plan for the deer and put out an extra (round) bale. I also keep one or two dogs who live in the barn; they tend to hurry any deer they see deer across the filed and into my neighbor's patch of trees.

Finally, I occasionally allow someone to hunt our forest, but it is not my preferred method. The deer are a pest, but a beautiful one, and I love to watch them. If I wanted to, I could pick off a few from my back deck myself!!
