I live in the country so to some extent I knew what I was getting into when I moved here. I like the deer and my kids think they are great and my neighbor is too close to us to use a gun. So I am trying to figure out if it is possible to manage them. The last homeowners had a dog and I am probably about 2 years away from getting a dog to scare them off at times. As I landscape the yard is there a good source of information on what plants deer like and don't like?
Also, I have heard Deer love hostas, is it possible to stear deer away from your main landscaping by planting another lower cost food supply in another area?
Concerining chipmunks, I have not found one single solution that works, but I just notice a barred own in the area and I am planning to put up some owl boxes to see if I can get a few Barn owls to come in and lessen the chipmunk and fieldmouse population.
