,,,Deer problems !! And state will not help.

I have a few very nice lawns we take care of....now I have deer eating all the shrubs and the state is to blame. Why in the world did they post a crossing sign right in front of two of my customers houses ??????

This is a high traffic area and deer are being hit also ? They could have placed the signs down where there it is safer

This lady has it right.

I cant believe they would tell the deer to cross in that area and not a safer crossing. What were they thinking? lol

Just move the signs down the road a few hundred feet that way you will get the deer away from your customers property

Take it easy on her. In Part 2 she explains that she grew up in an isolated area and didn't understand the signs are not meant for deer.
