      BAck at my old place, which was loaded w deer, I used fencing for my
      core collection, and protected the outliers w 2 dogs and archers. Here
      at my new place, there is less pressure and I am able to control them
      (but not completely eliminate their damage) using only Don Hyatt's
      famous deer spray, which I think he should patent and sell for
      $40/bottle, like those other gardens store elixirs.
