    Have you noticed this stuff blooming everywhere when trimming your shooting lanes?

    So if deer or any animals eat it they will die also? Never herd of it.

    It's my understanding that deer do not eat it. It is primarily dangerous to domestic critters of European origin. It doesn't kill cattle right away..that's why it would get in the milk and kill the people that drank it. Milk sickness is rare today because commercial milk is from a mix of many different cows, and it would be nearly impossible to get enough to poison anyone. I suppose if you were milking your own cow these days it would be a very real concern.

    Your videos are always very informative and educational. I need to know more about the weeds and plants I've stomped on over the decades, but had no idea what they were.
