    I've heard "go to the barber shop and sweep up the hair off the floor cause deer hate that smell".

    I've heard you can plant certain flowers -- germaniums? And other "natural remedies".

    Apparently, my deer have not been advised on the latest deer repeller technologies or methods, cause they keep eating Mrs. CP's flowers.

    (Now, never mind the fact that she bought a bag of DEER CORN to put in the front yard several years ago so the grandkids could see deer up close and personal -- NOW she wants them to stay AWAY! Could be our deer are just really confused... "you invite me there, then you shoo me away?")

    I'd like to stay with NATURAL remedies. (one of my favorites was "buy some panther (or cougar) pee, and sprinkle some around the garden)
    Not sure about "Deer Repellant" but as for "Deer Repellent" () some of the old timers around here recommend rotten eggs mixed with fish meal and hot peppers.

    I think the most effective thing I've done in the past was motion activated sprinkles! I guess I need to do that again. I can't protect the WHOLE yard, but I can protect the flower beds and stuff.

    I just need to let my UPS and FedEx guys know ahead of time this time.

    I actually thought about scattering some deer corn over there, but I LIKE my neighbors! Besides, they're too far away for that to work... if the deer are "in the neighborhood", my yard is "the yard".

    They walk into it.

    There's this:

    Rosemary would grow well. Rue is called the 'herb of grace' - but it can be very difficult to handle (it can cause blisters if the person is sensitive to it).

    The only thing that really works here: a high fence. Rain washes everything else away (except not now, when we have a drought ).

    Yeah, but if they can't see what they are jumping, how are they supposed to know that they shouldn't jump there?

    I overheard a park ranger discussing this once. His recommendation was fishing line strung around the area about chest high (for the deer). Deer won't jump if they can't see what they are jumping - or so the ranger said.
