    In my area the deer destroy everything any suggestions for a spray or granular deer repellent. I haven’t 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.

    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.
