    A few thoughts regarding your deer issues 1) The fence around my garden, which is 43' X 43', is, approximately, 7" tall and the deer dont jump it . 2) If you put long strands of brightly colored survey ribbons, tied to the wire, as they stream in the wind the movement spooks the deer. 3) I take aluminum pie pans and cut them in half and attach a large snap swivel to the piece of pie pan and wire this to the fence. The banging and clattering in the wind keeps the deer away. This works like a charm and its cheap. My $.02.

    They didn't mind the ribbon/ marking tape. I didn't try the pie pans

    I have a video from on our place with a young buck eating what appears to be a broom weed right beside a bunch of corn on the ground under the feeder !
    And it nibbles on it at first and then .....PULLS the entire plant right out of the ground and walks away stage left munching on it !
    I once watched a young doe eating what we call sand spur grass one time as well during a drought , she pulled up entire clumps of the grass and then used her back foot to knock off the sand spurs like she was scratching fleas !
    and some might even go so far as to say a deer won't eat green acorns off a tree and that is also not true as I have seen that before as well .
    one lady we knew back when loved her "yard" deer , until one fine day they came in and ate her rose bushes to the stems , always wanted to hunt there and BINGO ,she finally said kill them all !
    when they are referred to as a "browser" it completely describes what they are all about . One of the largest bucks I ever harvested years ago at 27 yards off the tip of my 308 rifle barrel was eating the little tiny seeded tips of some sort of tall grass as he walked up on me .
