Deer

Postby farmall man » Tue Jul 05, 2005 9:04 pm

I have about an acre of sweet corn and unless i walk around there every day and leave my scent the deer come and bite the tops of the stalk. Any ways to keep them away would be appreciated Thanks.

Go to your barber and get a garbage bag of human hair and spread it around the corn patch. I have heard this trick keeps coyotes away from chickens...might work on deer, too. 30-06 rifle works good, too. :lol:

I already tried putting hair around and it didnt seem to affect the deer and I live in city limits so I cant hunt them :(

If you live near a zoo, see if you can get some dung from them. I have heard the smell of the dropppings from strange animals will discourage them. You may have to wait in line though, because a lot of landscapers also use it.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

My garden isn't that large, so I put range fence around it. That was the only way I could stop them. I heard one of those motion sensor sprinklers will work. But in a large field, would be difficult to cover all the area ............ Otherwise, keep a dog close by ....

I've heard about John's solution and It's supposed to work. One I know about uses predator poop like large cat or wolf. Happy scooping!

Feed them some cracked corn regularly. They will let your garden and shrubs alone then :)

Farmall Man- I know its now after corn season but I just read this and I raised sweet corn also this year. I ended up putting an electric fence around my corn. I had a 50' x 50' area to protect. It was expensive but I'm hoping to use it year after year. Next yr I'm thinkin of puttin in maybe 1/4 acre so don't know what I'll do then. Guess just hope there is enough for me and them both :lol:

I have had success keeping deer and raccoons away from the cornpatch and my barn with moth balls. I dissolve about 10-15 balls with 1 gallon of very warm water, let cool and put it in my sprayer. It also makes my hunny's nose crinkle when she looks for me in the barn! I like WKPoors solution, and i hope to get an electric fence in the near future.
Hope this helps for next season,
John

growing up on the farm, we always had a large garden. i remember 100 tomato plants one year. anyway, we always put either dog hair/human hair in panty hose. tie it to a stick on the four corners. one high (3-4 ft) one low about 1 ft, never had any problems with animals. always had a good harvest.

WK,
I lost everything to deer this year and was thinking about using electric fence next year, so I'm curious. How high did you set your fence wire(s)?

Also, since you have the fencer and some supplies, would it be that much more expensive to fence your 1/4 acre than it was for the 50 x 50 plot?

Here's a good source for electric fence supplies. I'm thinking about using the electric net fence next year.
