Can we hunt in Spring Creek Association? Hunting in any form within Spring Creek Association is prohibited. Signage is posted at every main entrance of the Association.
What can I do about the deer in my yard? Hunting in any form within Spring Creek Association is prohibited. Signage is posted at every main entrance of the Association. Do not intentionally feed deer. Local feed stores sell sacks of "deer feed" however; this feed is not natural forage for the deer, it is a grain which their stomachs cannot digest and is of no benefit to them. Keep your hay and/or grain covered or inside a storage building or barn. Plant "deer resistant" foliage/trees. Put up a fence; fences don't always keep them out but they help deter them. Placing fencing around your trees will protect them from damage from shedding bucks and hungry pregnant does.
