Does anyone know of a good safe deer repellant?

I would like to know of a good deer repellant that will keep them away from my flowers, vegetables and shrubs. We are over run with deer here. I love watching them and I don’t mind them feeding here off our crab apple trees but I just want to keep them out of my flowers and garden. Does anyone know of a repellant that really works that is not harmful to the plants or other animals, people or the environment? Thank you in advance.

i am not sure this will work for deer but for rabbits and other little creatures i would take an empty moyo jar no lid and lay them around in the garden on there sides and it worked pretty well it might work for deer too. i don't know why it worked but it did

i live in a very rural community where deer are a common issue. One of the best things you can do for your garden if you don't want them off the property just out of the veggies is fencing. When you fence your garden deer stay out but other critters can come and go. If you decide to fence your garden off, bury at least one and one half foot of fence under the ground to keep them from pawing at it and sticking their head under and getting stuck, and you will want to put a fence on the top so it is almost like a cage, to discourage jumping in. It doesn't have to go all the way across, but just enough to keep them out. About 3 feet always worked around here. And if you are worried about the looks of a yard cage as my friend calls them don't worry if done right they are unobtrusive and can look quite nice like a green house. best of luck for your garden and safety of your furry friends.

My parents has a cottage up in middle Wisconsin and they have deer gallor up there, my mother thinks that used fabric softeners work, they have human scent on them and they tend to stay away from it. Wouldn't hurt to try. Good Luck
