* Tell noone about your spot in the woods, things get much too complicated when other people start finding out; you tell one person and sometimes the number of people that know grows exponentially. So it's best to keep it as down low as possible.

* Make sure your close to a water source, when the rain stops coming you don't wanna be stuck lugging water farther then needed.

* When harvest time comes, do it at nighttime, and don't use flashlights, just let your eyes adjust, but if your stuck using one, at least wait to use it when your far enough in the woods.

Keep em comming people, and welcome to the new forum.

If you live in an area with a dense deer or elk population, you know how ravenous and destructive these beasts can be, sometimes eating every bud right off the stems.

I've found a few things to help in my situation. I've usually tried them all at once, so I cannot guarantee the effectiveness of each individual precaution.

1) Deer have an excellent sense of smell and try to avoid predators when possible. I like to collect dog hair when I can, spreading a little out each time I visit the grow. I do not recommend using your own hair (only for fear that it could be used as evidence against you.)

2) (This one is weird, I know, but...) I like to fill 20 oz. bottles with my own urine. When I transplant into the ground I like to bury the bottle all the way up to the neck, just under the cap. When I am done planting, I take the cap off (or puncture a hole in the cap) so that the smell constantly wafts out of the bottle. I know this will dilute with rain, but I find that some always remains.

3) When possible try to visit the site frequently. This is particularly easy during planting and sexing, but try to make a few extra trips in between. I think the most effective method of keeping deer away is to make your presence known. My first grow was in a field that had been laid down by deer for years.

Thought I might add that if you visit the site frequently, be sure to take a different route each time, trails are not hard to be made when your walkin through them often, and people tend to just wonder in the woods (dont ask why) and follow random trails.

Polymer crystals reduce watering. Polymer granules absorb water like a sponge and release when soil dries. Soil moist is what i got. cheap stuff. says to reduce watering by 50% and last several seasons.

hahaha. so far every one of these is right on the $

one thing i kinda have to dissagree with, is that maing your presence known wards off deer. deer are naturally curious animals, and from years of hunting ive found they often travel the path a human has taken, like follow their footsteps in mud and such. if you do go into the woods, do the exact opposite of shrooms, be a little dirty. freshly cleaned means no natural scents that keep deer away. i Also pee in bottles, i save a few under the sink so i can grab them when i make a trip.

this doesnt keep away possums for some reason...anyone know how to keep them away, i dont want to kill them. even if they are nasty.

i usually piss around plants to keep deer away, but as for possum, maybe some soap shavings or moth balls? If that fails get some predator urine used for hunting, coyote/fox should work well.

make sure you pick a spot with good sunlight. This is important if you live in the woods or a place that has drastic elevation changes:rastamon:

um what? have you personally experienced this?

I've had numerous calls about controlling bunnies, deer etc from eating flowering plants. I have turned to America's Master Gardener for a consultation and Jerry Baker writes in his book this recipe to stave off the plant eating critters. Here Goes...

Jerry recommends a concoction that contains

1/2 cup of original Murphy's Oil Soap



http://www.blufftontoday.com/taxonomy/term/1053



Quote:

Varmint Control
1/2 c Murphy's Oil Soap
1/2 c lemon scented dishwashing liquid
1/2 c castor oil
1/2 c lemon scented ammonia
1/2 c HOT pepper sauce
1/2 c urine
Mix in a 20 gallon hose-end sprayer and apply to the point of run-off to area that needs protecting.

Quote:

--Deer do not like the scent of soap or aftershave. Perhaps this is why hunters avoid using any scented toiletries before they go out deer hunting. So, this is one that might be easier on the nostrils than the rotten egg approach!

--Hang small bars of soap from the branches of trees and shrubs. You can either hang them in panty hose, or you can poke holes into the bars of soap, run twine through them, and tie them about twenty feet apart on branches of trees and shrubs. You can also hang soap from stakes placed every few feet around plants in the perennial boarder. The beauty of using scented soaps is that they will retain their odor for a long time, and do not need to be reapplied after every rain.

yeah i heard irish spring is a no no, but that mix sounds good.

i have to disagree that predator urine scares possums away, they litterally dont give a shit about anything. they can be attacked in there territory daily and never leave. ive seen this on numerous occasions. the more i think about it theyre kinda cool. but theyre just sooooooo ugly....eww

lucky me, i dont ever take any trails, i walk a creek to get where i grow, so no footprints ever :smile:

MEROMEROMEROMERO, i was just joshin ya man. i sowwy! come back! take cred for the tip man, you were the first to mention it.
