All over my lot.. im on a acre lot that backs to a creek. I just bought the house but it was built in 05 and all the shrubs look like they are newly planted because i think they nibble them down.

I'd argue, if anyone asked, that they are just large rodents destroying your vegitation. Take 'em out like you would a rat.

I've counted as many as 100 of these in my front yard. This is alongside my driveway.

They eat everything if they get hungry enough. The subdivison was an exotic game ranch before it was subdivided in to acreage lots and all the game was left intact. Multiple hundreds of blackbuck antelope and axis deer.

I think the law says that you can shoot deer if they're destroying your crop/and or property .... one catch ... you have the let them lay,
meaning you can not harvest the carcass
