There mostly foragers and eat everything from fresh grass in the spring to grubs or anything dead. I have seen full grown grizzlys digging up fox dens and snacking on the new pups though. Not a pretty sight. PETA would be horrified I guess.


But deer do get old or sick, and black bear will take them. They also eat a few fawns. I agree that deer are not a major part of their diet, though.

Those 8' high fences are the norm here in the Hood River Valley, to protect the orchard fruit crops.
Still, we see evidence in our yard of bears getting into the cherry orchards.
It's the pits...

That's the legal minimum for deer farms here in Wisconsin.

Interestingly, when my wife and I moved to Washington, we had chain link fence, 6' tall, installed in an area roughly 75' square (not 75 square feet). We've been here for more than 20 years and have never had a problem with deer in the garden.

I should make mention, the deer, here, are black tail----a relatively small animal.

Harold is right, when we lived ion Issaquah we had a 6' fence around the back yard and the only time the deer got in the back yard was when the the wind blew the fence down :( or when we left the side gate open for their free passage. We loved to take pics of them. Some would even bed down in the more secluded areas. :) :) That is the thing we most miss here in Caldwell.

All--

A tour of the home site. I began on the lower level, next to the break in the ridge above the cliff. I videod this twice, the first time using the GoPro's "Super Wide" setting and the second time using the "Linear" setting, which is something of an approximation of what you and I see with the old Mark I devices.

Only the Linear setting didn't record because I didn't push the button or I didn't push it hard enough or I pushed the wrong button or . . .

Anyway, the only version I have to post is the Super Wide. So, here it is.

As a bonus, here is the absolute up to date latest on the garage and shop . . .
