    Lowe's and Home Depot have a product called Deer Away or Deer Off that I've had success with.

    If it's a vegetable garden, try going to your local barber and get some cut hair. Sounds weird but I've been told it it works.

    Make simple effigies that look like a person. Attach a bell or bells to each effigy such that the bells will make sounds upon vibration from the wind. Stand the effigies in your garden and this will ensure no deer enters your garden.

    We have lots of deer in our neighborhood and have tried just about everything (short of building a fence) to keep them from destroying our shrubs, fruit trees, vegetables and flowers, including dog hair, people hair, and noisy hanging aluminum pans. What's worked the best is the rotten egg and garlic mix Longhunter mentions. My husband mixes it up with water and I spray it on the plants the deer like best after every hard rain. Just don't spray when it's windy. This stuff really stinks!
