I've read that buck wheat can be used as a deer deterrent (Is it the smell? The taste?)You mentioned you planted buck wheat as a cover crop recently. I wonder if you'll notice any difference in the deer invaders' habits?

Those Ohio deer are giant compared to the swamp deer down in coastal GA! though not as big as the Minnesota deer I saw last month.
