A new book by J. Wayne Fears might be just the opposite of what you’re looking for … if you’re trying to keep deer out of your native plant garden, but look at the virtues of his advice. This outdoorsman advocates for a vibrant, natural landscape to attract and feed deer in a healthy and sustainable way, rather than perpetually cultivating land to serve as food plots. His promotion of native woody shrubs and herbaceous plants helps extend and diversify larger territories than most of us have the direct power to influence. Perhaps this inexpensive ($8.95) book is something you would want to give to hunters, property owners, or land managers in your area.
The book is available from Pro Tool Industries here.
