Thanks again and my takeaway
I very much appreciate all of the insights and ideas you guys have provided. I will try camphor, did plant bushes/trees they don't like but as the winter season goes on they're more willing to eat what they supposedly don't like including the bottom 5' of 8 magnificent 12-16' tall Hollies. Will try to protect last 3 with camphor and some store bought stuff.
But the equally important takeaway from this experience is the great sense of community you guys share. I have been amazed at the spirit of helpfulness you guys have shown and equally important, the sense of respect and ethics you have demonstrated regarding the ethical "taking" of deer. As a "city folk" I have not had the opportunity to experience the "culture" of hunting before and I am impressed.
