How to protect your marijuana crop from critters

A question from a fellow grower:

I was asked by someone I met and was wondering if you might be able to answer their question for me. They wanted to know how one would protect their crop from any type of weed munching animals?Discretely too? N’d also if the grow was a success where could one dry the bud safely and hidden if they have people who don’t take too kindly to the smell of gods vagina. If you have any tips or suggestions please let me know.
