    Go to your local barber shop and spread human hair around the area. That'll keep 'em out

    A great sabotage scent is IRISH SPRINGS SOAP. Just cut or brake it up into little pieces and spread it around. The deer hate it. I work in the landscape nursery industry and this is what we use to keep deer away from plants. It is affective and very cheap.

    NOW!,,,, LET ME START BY SAYING....I AM NOT TRYING TO START SOMETHING HERE.

    To be honest....you probably have some of the best stuff already.

    I think that most everyone has seen the reaction of deer which are exposed to rut lures before the time is right.
    My second choice is plot saver...which is great....but it wont beat a good tarsal lure for keeping the deer far far away from the garden.

    Grandpa used to hang tarsal flags on bean poles when the Peas and corn was nearly ready and he never had problems with the deer.

    Yup.............I have seen several bucks leave the area on the run while using the Hunter Specialties Fresh Earth scent wafer on my hat. They HATE that stuff!

    fox urine...you can buy it as a gel to spread on the leaves and trees and it only needs to be applied about every two weeks. Girlfriend has a GIANT tube of it for her garden....which is fine by me, keeps'em back in the berries by my stand

    Yep, to the Irish Spring soap....take some bars and rub it on the bark of a tree, do it upwind of an area you want to effect.....dirty smelly gym socks hung in the right place works also........

    I had some tomato plants in pots on my porch. After a couple weeks the deer found them and started to eat them. In June, I attached half a bar of Dial soap on string to each plant. They never touched them again.

    Me....

    For a small hourly fee I'll stand in the area that you don't want deer in.
    The way my seasons going, I evidently am an excellent repellent for deer.

    Yup. Irish spring, human hair; stinky t-shirt, once got dog doo on my boots and deer didn't just leave when they hit the scent, they turned themselves inside out -- that was deep woods hunting where dogs are not common, though.

    Irish spring soap. Its what I used around my plot this year to keep the deer from eating it before it had a chance to grow. Be careful though, they will stay away for a couple of weeks after you get rid of the soap because the rain and dew wash it into the soil and the scent lingers until it is washed away by a few rains.
