5. Question of this Week: Can anything be done about the sharp increase in the deer population and the way they use my plants and garden like their personal salad bar? No, not really. While we can “disrupt” the patterns of the flocks of geese visiting our parks and fields, the “regulation” of deer is fully under the authority of New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).
