Deer repellent machine#4

We had another deer invasion last night. Some minor damage to the sweet potato leaves on the far end of the garden. I'm coming to the conclusion that these anti-deer contraptions have an effective range of about 50 feet.

The 4th contraption was built today with a bonus sound. After the tin smashing sound we now get a thunk or a clink when the golf ball hits the new steel cup which is the same one Anna took around the world during her Watson fellowship.

Maybe now this will cover our entire garden perimeter...time will tell.

We finally solved the deer in the garden problem, and the solution was so elegant we gave it a new website.  Check out our deer deterrent website for free plans!
