Re: Deer? Vandals? We shall see.
I keep homing pigeons in my backyard and store their feed in a 5 gallon metal bucket with a lockable lid to deter critters.
At one point last summer, almost daily, I would find that bucket dragged into a new place in the yard each morning. I am talking being moved 50 yards from its usual location near the coop. When full, that bucket is pretty heavy, and I was pretty sure it was the local high school kids being mischievous. I put up a game camera and discovered it was a gang of 4 raccoons dragging that feed buck around the yard each night trying to get it open. Silly critters
