Yes; I've run across plants in the bush that people have covered with chicken wire to keep it from getting eaten. They stand out like a sore thumb.

you can't get a buzz off hemp anyway.. the female plant that is.. the only reason hemp is illegal to grow is because it would kill the economy.. everything from rope to paper to clothescan be made from hemp.. this would kill the timber industries and all man made material items if it was made legal to grow.. this is the only reason why you are not allowed to grow it.. it would put companies out of bussiness big time.. i do believe rabbits have died from eating the male plants though.. unless someone was bs me about that.. havent looked that up yet..

Can't tell you, but in all seriousness, I did it sit in a wild patch of it once while coyote hunting, as it was the best available concealment. I suppose it did provide a measure of cover scent.
