What about a fence?
A simple solution to protecting your backyard from deer is to fence them out.
Through all the banter, I haven’t heard this solution. That is what the airport does to keep deer off the runway.
If you like the deer, keep the gate open. If you don’t like the deer, fence them out.
Why is killing OK? If the deer can’t get in your yard, they will move on.
