Happy Independence Day Oldtimers! Here in the "suburbs" of NJ the deer are so thick they will eat your garden to the bone. I've tried everything, deerBgone, various animal urine, etc. Well say hello to my little friend, I made a cutout of a dog, suspended him from fishing line so he rotates with the breeze and hooked up motion detector lights to illuminate him in dark. I'm working on the recording ofbarking! lol Frank try to stay cool, thought you drove your rig up to New England in summer.

Frank, humans weren’t meant to live on the east coast in the summer.  I’m thinking more like Bali or Tahiti.
