Are the deer helping you prune your shrubs?
Animal experts categorize white-tailed deer as 'browsers'.  I agree, because they've been browsing, in fact, loitering around my house lately.  Get some facts on deer-resistant (notice I didn't say deer-proof) plants from Texas A&M, My Deer Garden, Inc., and Patti Simons of Austin.  There is also a comprehensive listing on the subject at About.com.

Interesting Information on Deer Collisions:
from Critter Control Newsletter 2002
"Insurance companies expect to pay out over $1 billion in claims for 1.5 million deer/automobile accidents this year.  In addition, homeowners will pay over $250 million to replace flowers, vegetables, shrubbery, and trees destroyed by these graceful, yet sometimes destructive animals."
