In my area the deer destroy everything any suggestions for a spray or granular deer repellent. I havenít found anything that works very well unless it is sprayed everyday.

How about a sacrificial deer feeder? I have yet to have deer munch on my plants when I feed them corn...though maybe I am just lucky or dont have the right plants.

I use a ghille suit.
When they get close, I just grab them and put 'em in the oven.

we feed them corn everyday. I guess it just makes them feel more comfortable at our house.

Try our Blistering Defense it sticks around for about 30 days. Spray it on the foliage and it makes it taste like a hot spice and they most commonly won't eat it.

I was going to suggest a .308 with a 150gr soft point but figured it may upset some people around here.

that was my thoughts as well :gunsfirin :gunsfirin

But on a serious note my Grandfather gets human hair from his barber and spreads it around his garden He says the smell of people helps keep them away.

Human hair doesent last long. I dont know if it would work but i had a guy tell me he was pissed at some other hunters and hung a lot of those deer whistles you buy for your car at wal-mart in trees and the deer stayed away from that area.

Liquid Fence supposedly works very well, sold it by the crate when i worked at the garden center. I've also heard of farmers using like m80s in the fields to make a loud enough noise that scares them away.

Go to the butcher and get whatever animal by-products he's got lying around....blood, hair, teeth & skin included :) (yum!)....and put it all in individual raccoon-proof plastic durable containers, that have plenty of decent-sized ventilation holes punched in them !!

Hang these from trees, or wherever...

(This remind anyone of "Blair Witch Project" ?!? :laugh: :dizzy:)
