I wish you could catch a bunch and send them up here, we are deer poor in this area. And the coyotes have no trouble staying ahead of the birth rate so it ain't changing anytime soon. Funny how the places that want deer the least have the most.
I could give you a great mincemeat recipe!!
You could come down to Jersey and take a few back with you - we won't miss them at all. Knock on wood that I haven't yet hit any this year. I travel to work anywhere between 0345 - 0515 most days and it's heart stopping to encounter several most mornings. And selfishly, I'd really like to be able plant tulips someday.
I alternate between these two repellents and have excellent results. I had to re-apply about every month this year because it was so wet. I'll offer this observation I had this summer. I had sprayed with the Plantskydd about a week before we watched a doe walk between the woods and a garden separated by about 10 feet. She started out heading for the garden, started to sniff really hard and walked sideways away from the garden wearing a startled look on her face. Just the reaction I was hoping for! Neighbors are always asking us how we manage to have so many flowers, especially lillies. I sprinkle the Deer Away Big Game powder on the areas where the bulbs are and on the shrubs and small trees during the winter and spring with good success. It's not cheap, but with the amount of work involved in the gardens, it's 'affordable' insurance
