Default Keep deer out of my beds

I was asked by a client for ways to keep the deer out of his yard, he said he tried a certain type of plant, and some bar soap, but wanted to know other ways as if that stuff wasn't working. Anyone know of any other methods?

I use a rifle or a bow. Mg buddies use their trucks sometimes. Never tried soap... does he throw it at them? Haha

I have a catalog that might have a product in it. Let me get back to you.... have you tried Google?

Pass my info along to them. But tell them the blood splatter will wash out after a while.

My aunt said she has a book, she's going to see if she can find it for me but, said it has a spray that you can put where you dont want the deer & is soposed to work good,, you could also fence yourself in & them out too! some people have put wrap arround tree's & plants as well & works for the most part, like burlap...

Would they consider installing any sort of deer fencing?

Theres all kinds of plants, sprays, sounds, thats are suppose to work but if a deer is hungry enough he just wont give a ****.

Do as steve said and build a fence. Its the most profitable solution for your business too.

OR find a guy on cragslist looking for land to hunt on. I see a post every few weeks from a bow hunter.

Check out some of the products from Bonide. I have heard lots of great things from the resident lawn and garden expert in houston. He reccomends it quite a bit. just a thought.

I still prefer to use a .378 Weatherby Mag... its all prefrence thought.
