The author of Outwitting Critters and Outwitting Squirrels sets his sights on diverting Bambi's treacherous kin from our backyards and gardens. In Adler's opinion, deer are "very, very big squirrels." In outlining the "awful truth about deer," Adler ranks them ahead of squirrels for peskiness. After helping verify the animals' presence in their yards, he offers stratagems, based on knowledge of how deer live and think, to ward deer away from homes and cars.
