Here in California that is a common thing. This year has been the largest so far. 100s of millions have been destroyed. The Dum as es of eather end of this state now want to legalize it. "For the tax revenue" What they need to do is have a open seasion on them. They would make more money on the tags and have more game for next year.
Deer love that stuff. Back in Ohio a friend of mine had 5 medium size plants in 5 gal. buckets and his wife said get rid of them. So he took them down to his deer hunting stand thinking in a couple weeks they will be really big and he could pick them. Well when we went back there the plants were chewed off to the ground, not even a stub was sticking out. So much for that idea.
