    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.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    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.
