The deer are decimating the garden. They have eaten everyone of my wife's sunflowers and are now starting on the squash and cucumber plants. I hate to kill them but if this does not stop or another idea comes to mind. I will be applying the OO buck copper plate buffered 3" magnum 12 guage to the garden. I have tried everything folks locally have suggested in the past but they keep right on coming back. I'd appreciate any idea's short of shooting the deer to keep them away if it will work. I would rather not shoot them during their birthing season while they are raising their young.
