How to keep deer away from bird feeders?
I have lived in the country before, and never encountered this problem. I have to bring my bird feeders in every night or the deer will clean them out. Would a cage around the feeder help? It's a hanging feeder w/small openings--either they're using their tongues, or just knocking the feeder around so the food falls out. My yard is fenced; I thought the smell of my dog would keep them out too, but no.
Thanks for any advice!
