    This sounde stupid but it worked for my uncle. Mount one of them motion sensor lights in the garden on a post. When the deer come in the light will go off and either scare them off or illuminate the area so you can shoot the trespassers. And it may not be legal in your area to shoot so check with fish and game . Jef

      You're right............It does sound stupid................I have to assume the deer are considerably smarter than you guys.

            I guess you don't live in farm country. Don't knock it till you've tried it.

              hook the motion detector up to a strobe that would freek them out, then they will all be out the doing the disco shuffel. dont forget to hook the raideo up too.
              a loud dog might work. but the fence should do it. i got a deer book in the shop i'll see if i can find the name of the plant they avaid.

              but i kinda like the idea of the light and filling the freezer.

                I was raised on a farm, live in farm country now, and you still don't get it,I guess. I can think of better ways to rid myself of deer that are not afraid of light than to shoot them. Hey, try this. Dress up like a deer hunter and you probably won't see any.

                        You'd be surprised at what deer can get used to, especially to the point it doesn't even bother them anymore. The motion sensors will work for a time, but they will get used to it and won't even pay it any attention after a while. Growing up, my neighbor had a farm and we grew peas every year in one of the back fields. The deer did major damage, and were eating about as much as we picked. The field was too large to fence, so my neighbor bought some kind of noise cannon that worked off propane. It sounded like a gun going off, and it went off at random times. This worked for about a week, but then the deer would just stand there when it went off. It got to the point they wouldn't even pay it any attention. We finally got a crop permit from the DNR, which allowed us to cull a few of the deer. One evening I was sitting on the field, and two deer walked out to work the peas over. I shot the first one, and the second never even lifted his head (and never did again ).

                        If you are going to fence in the area, make it tall. Deer are remarkable jumpers, esprcially when they find something they like to eat!
