Recent rains relly pounded my U-Pick efforts. That's all part of this life I have chosen.

What I didn't plan on was the dang dogs eating my watermelons. Seriously!! Vines got knocked down uncovering the fruit. Now my big male (80#) is going out there & hauling off my melons ~3-6 lb size.

Once he is done "playing ball" with them, he leaves them in the yard and my best female comes along breaks them open and eats them just like a kid would, slurping and slopping. Any suggestions on how to prevent this turn of events? And I was worried about deer and the birds. . .

I have had some trouble with coyotes eating watermellons. They start at one end & go plum thru to the other end. They go thru real fast if I have my shot gun handy.

Shep, A good electric fence will stop most anything if you put something on it to attract them so they get a good dose. After that just unhook it for the you-pick during the day. It will stop bulls n bears n deer n dogs. Duey
