RM> I'm betting they could jump 6 ft to,,the fencing in the pictures is a cheap 4fter (I removed a dog kennel in that area) the rest of my fencing is probably 5 ft high, we've just been to lazy to continue the 'nice fencing' where this flimsy stuff is.
I think because my husband feeds them behind that fence, they have no need to jump it, thats just my opinion of course
Try the mothball thing, or they say Irish spring soap..

Deer can easily jump over a 4ft fence, can moderately jump over a 6ft fence. If they are smart they wont because with some fences they risk getting tangled or stuck. 8ft so far have been the only ones I have heard of that they for sure wont jump over.
They also don't like to climb over some things. I've been told that putting pallets where they walk helps, but then that invites other critters (like snakes) to come around. Not sure how well that would really work out then.
You could also try making a really HOT pepper/water mixture and spray it a long the grass where they eat. Kinda like bitter spray for dogs, lol.

|Rangers_mom||Jakoda, we have a fence that high that they just jump right over. They don't even miss a beat. Maybe if i put in a 6 foot privacy fence? But that would be really expensive and i have heard that deer have no problem with that either.|

|Rangers_mom||Shepherdmom, that really stinks - for both the deer and your car. Luckily, from the looks of the damage no people were seriously injured. I get so nervous when I am driving on the highway at 60 to 70 mph and see herds of deer eating the vegetation on the side of the road.|

yep I've hit a couple with cars over the years, and not a good outcome
RM> no they respect the fence quite well, probably because they know now where there feed is which is on the other side of the fence

When I saw the title of this thread, I had to agree. This is my experience with a deer. I was on my way to work with one of the dogs at the rescue, unfortunately I never made it.
Killed both the deer and my car.

Landscape Plants Rated by Deer Resistance: Home, Lawn & Ga...
Here is a list plants that are a deer repellant. Just be careful as some of them are also bad for dogs. The list is long though, and there are lots of things on there that should be safe for your dogs, but that the deers don't like.

|Rangers_mom||Love the pic of your dog and the deer in the background. That is not a very high fence don't the deer come into your yard? If not you are really lucky. Like your deer our deer seem totally comfortable with our dogs. I have let Buzz (my older dog) out when the deer are in the wooded part of my yard and as long as they don't step foot on the grass Buzz will ignor em and the deer will ignor him. Well maybe not ignor but they let each other be. Ranger (my young dog) isn't quite on the same page yet still the deer really don't seem too scared of him. They jump the fence and pretty much just stay on the other side.|
