Don't know if you found a workable solution to your deer problem last summer, but here's a simple, free deterrent you can try this year. Human urine-you can collect it in a cup, jar, pan or bucket and save it to mark your garden/property boundaries. A spray bottle to apply it will allow you to stretch your supply and keep it stored discreetly. The deer can smell even a few drops, but you won't be able to detect that amount. Re-apply every few days, after heavy dew, and after rain. If just marking the fence posts, shrubbery, etc. around the garden perimeter isn't enough, you can put a little on their favoite plants as well- on the leaves of corn, beans, etc. Wash the fruit/veggies well if you apply directly to those.
Beagles are one of the best deer and raccoon repellants; they love their work, but you've got to have a fence to keep them home. They are hunting dogs, and they ROAM! But great fun to have around.
Did the deer ever let you harvest anything from your garden?
