DS got a deer a few days ago, wouldn't you know that DH helped gut it in the meadow and did not bury the remains. So every freaking hawk in the area comes to feast! I could just kill DH for that stupid stunt. I brought out my 9 week old Great Prys but they are not very fierce right now. I went outside to smoke the deer bones for the dogs when I noticed the hawks and as soon as I started the fire up in the smoker the hawks flew away and did not return all day. Has anyone kept a barrel ready to burn a fire in to deter hawks? It seemed to have done the trick quite quickly and for a good many hours, heck they may have not returned still today. I think until my Pyrs get old enough to keep the hawks away I may try lighting a fire every time I notice them in the sky. Thoughts? Oh and it will help if DH learns to bury the innards too.
