I was told that u could place Irish soap around your food plots to keep the deer out , can any one confirm that ? And If so how long would it work ?

Brad @ Eagle Seed and I had a discussion about this one time, and yes it will deter them, but not a long term solution. Dryer sheets will also help deter.

From what I've studied, the only true fire method to keeping them out for extented periods is an electric fence set up like with multiple strands on the outside and a single strand, located about 4 feet inside that.

You can find some examples of the e fence over or the QDMA forums.

Many things will deter deer briefly. But hungry deer will get used to anything. When I was a kid (in CA), we had Coastal Blacktails that would come down out of the dry hills to eat our garden in summer. We tried everything to keep them out--lions blood, human hair, pie pans tied on strings, radios playing all night, etc. Everything worked, briefly. Then the deer would get used to it. Eventually, they even got used to me going out at night, holding a flashlight on them while I shot them with a BB gun! They would flinch every time I shot them, yet kept right on eating.

I have no idea what the "lion's blood" actually was, but it was dried blood from something, and it was sold in little bags at local garden stores as a deer repellant.

Sad but true. My parents are from Wisconsin, and I was born there, but until I was 14 I grew up at the outer edge of the huge "burbs" surrounding the San Francisco Bay area.

I have pictures of deer in my grandparents garden standing against a post with ivory soap on top of it... with a pie pan on a string... and (don't ask) a milk jug full of urine...

As someone else said... it MAY work for a WHILE.

The electric fence worked the best, but did no good for the rabbits.
