There is supposed to be some kind of tape that you can stake up around them that repels deer. I forgot what it's called but guys use it to keep deer out of food plots before they're ready.

There's also some kind of spray that you can douse the trees or shrubs or flowers in that will keep the deer from eating them.

I know, a lot of help I am! Don't have any names.

I guess that means I'll have to clean my arrow shafts. I use ivory for arrow lube!

Plotsaver tape works around my plots excellent.
Put the tape up around the plot spray with their egg based repellent and respray every 30 days or so.
I have see good results around my sunflowers. I have 2 plots surrounded this year.
I ordered my kits from Cabelas.

good luck!

Go to your local barber shop or hair salon and ask them to save you some hair. They just sweep it up and throw it out anyway. Just put human hair around the trees and most deer won't get anywhere near it because of the human scent.

How many trees are you talking about? I put a 48" tall wire mesh enclosure around each of the 8 trees I planted by the clubhouse. Does two things - kept them from eating the leaves (except those that poke out) and kept the bucks from making rubs on them.

i use plot saver around the garden, its working so far. redon is correct about the cages, when sept gets here the bucks will shread the trees if they are not protected. the hair trick can help also.

Another thing I've seen work to keep deer out of a garden:
drive rebar or fence posts around the perimeter and stretch clear monofilament fishing line about 2'-3' off the ground. 20 pound test works good. Deer can't see the line and it spooks them real good when their chest runs into it. :cheers:

Yep an outfitter in Iowa said he used SOAP to divert deer off trails, Ivory ,Dial doesnt matter. I tried the human hair thing and it didn't work well (my old dad used to have a barber shop) I had my best luck with irish spring.
