Default Buck keeps killing tree's

We have a buck or bucks on our land that have killed several trees in the back yard and tree beltthe last three years. No one has seen the buck and we don't know where he beds or feeds. He usually comes around about 11:00 pm or midnight to do his work. The dogs really throw a fit when he is around. He must be really big or the dogs are just plain scared of anything bigger than themselves. What can I do to protect the tree's from getting rubbed to death this fall. I don't know if I will be able to kill him as he must only come out at night. I was thinking of putting pepper or some other spice on the smaller trees. Anyone ever tried something like this?

1u need to first buy a scouting cameria if you want a pci of him and bring the dog inside..
2. Go find the run he comes out on an follow it back into the woods and look for a cluster of rubs and look for similar trees to the on in your back yard. deer sometimes like to rub certain types of trees.
3. Kill the buck end your tree problem.

They also make plastic sleeves for smaller trees that are growing. If these are trees in your yard that you want to protect go to a nursery and they can sell you some.

Although, your best defense is a good offense.

Put a tomato cage around it or make one out of wire fencing. Not pretty but will protect until it gets a little bigger.

Or just call around November.

Irish spring bars of soap around them hang them on a post if possible. They dont like the smell.

Does that really work?

the Irish spring thing does work, you will have to freshen it up w/ a pen knive every few weeks. cut it into 4 cubes, drill a hole in it to tie a string to a branch of a tree.
