- white-tailed deer
The year may be winding down; but deer movement persists. In fact, white-tailed deer are more desperate to find food that they are wandering onto lawns and gardens more frequently than last season. As we approach winter, here are things you need to know about deer movement.
Wind gusts and chilly temperatures, deer need to find food in the early morning and late afternoon hours while they still have day light. They need to avoid homeowners while also avoiding hunters. Instead of hunters pushing them further into woods, deer retreat to home properties.
For gardeners that will plant this winter, protect cold-weather crops, such as lettuce and squash with deer fence. Having a 7.5 to 8 foot high fence around gardens is the best method for keeping out deer this season.
