TOPIC: Turkies and Deer eat my sang!

Turkies and Deer eat my sang! 9 years 2 months ago #92

I have found two new patches this year. The day after I found them, the turkies came and scrached them all up. This knocked
a lot of the berries off before they were ripe. Then the deer came and ate most of the tops off the very next day. This seems to happen every year to at least a couple of my patches. Only a few of the berries make it to maturity for me to plant. Does anyone
have any suggestions on how to prevent this?

Hi Bill,Try laying some brush or limbs over the sang after it comes up (or even before). Just to make it not so excessible to the animals. If it sets right out in the open, it is easy to get to. If there are other things for the deer to get to and there is something in their way, they will usually take the \"path of least resistance\". So just a few branches, laying across the patch (so they would have to put their head into the brush to get to the sang) will sometimes protect it. Good luck.

PS. Early season venison is another way.
