As a mj farmer for decades, I've tried lots of different mthods of keep deer (and other critters except the 2-legged kinds) away from pot. A few weeks ago, my fertile brain came up with the best deterrent. Cheap and easy--here's how: -Get a roll of 4' high chicken wire. They come in rolls of 25'--50' at most large harware stores and isn't too expensive. -Cut 6' lengths, then join the 2 cut ends together with wire, forming a 4' long "tunnel" or tube. -Spray paint it brown or green (or both, camo style). -Lay the tubes on their sides. Encircle your plant(s) with these tubes. Secure them in place with tent stakes. That's it! When a deer steps on this hollow tube and starts putting pressure down on it, the tube starts to collapse and it freaks out the deer. It also impedes everything else, from bears to mice (although rabitts may dig under it). It even discourages snails & slugs! You can flatten these tubes and lash them onto your backpack for transport (at night preferably). I recommend covering them with a trash bag for concealment. Re-form them into tubes when you get to your garden.
