Keeping Deer Out of the Garden

Is there anyway to keep deer out of your garden besides a fence? Any sprays or deer deterrents from the store work? Or any home brews? Thanks for any advice.

Liquid fence or repellex with work depending on how heavy the pressure is.

Re: Keeping Deer Out of the Garden

Only 3 reasonably sure ways to keep deer out of ANYTHING..........

Fence it in with tall fencing
Shoot the deer
Have a dog that will keep them run out

Put three strands of electric fence. On top one hang strips of aluminum foil smeared with peanut butter.

The United States of America has the greatest people on earth.

I have electric next to the garden and I leave a radio on at night.

Re: Keeping Deer Out of the Garden

All the above work, some more some less.
Also try hitting the local yard sales and buying up old bottles of perfume, stinier the better. Hang scraps of clothe on the peremiter. Works some places others it don't.
A while back I had troubles with crows gettin' the sweet corn so I shot one and hung it up I the center of the corn patch. Worked quite well til a bear walked off with the carcass.... :-)

A gun will get you thru times of no money better than money will get you thru times of no gun.

Re: Keeping Deer Out of the Garden

I use the electric fence method referenced by others. I use the ribbon "wire". One at 3 inches keeps the raccoon out and one at 30 inches for the deer. Been doing this for about 8 years and haven't lost a thing since.
