I just came in from being outside with my dreat dane pup, she is about 17
weeks old. When we got outside she started growling and seriously pushing me
backwards.
I did not see why until we rounded the corner to take her to "her" spot in
the yard.
There was a medium sized deer staniding there with her head down and looking
all ***.
Long story short, she started towards me as i pulled my pup back to try to
go back in the house, and my pup let out some vicious barks that turned the
deer on her heels and protected her mommy as best she could... It did the
trick well and now she is my hero!

Does anyone know a good way that will keep deer out of your yard, as I
really do not want my pup or myself kicked by any mom's protecting their
babies in the next few months.
Just for informations sake, I am in oregon, I believe these are whitetail
deer that I have been seeing lately. There is a group of 7 females that
frequent my area. Animal control will not do much about it as there have
been no real problems that have come up, just missed threats by the over
acclimated deer.   Also I think some of the houses around here have actually
fed them.
Any suggestion would be helpful, thanks.

Most whitetail could clear a 6 foot fence with ease. You could always go to a
local beauty shop, and get some hair clippings off of the floor. It doesn't
take much, just spread it around the outer boundaries of your yard. Just be
sure to refreshen it every 3 or 4 days or after any rain. I had a
brother-in-law that had a moose problem similar to yours. He ended up having to
go to a zoo, to get some mountain lion urine (don't ask). That did the trick.
However hair should work for whitetail just fine.

I've seen deer jump a 6-foot fence from a standstill.

Deer are a bane of gardeners/homeowners, and there's really
not a good, reliable way to keep them out.  Some people pee
around the edges of their yard, but that really only works
if you're male and it requires frequent renewal.  In the
movie "The Rookie" someone spreads human hair clippings
around on a baseball diamond to keep the deer from eating
the incipient grass, but you'd need a lot of it and it would
also require period refreshing.  I'd probably try putting
dog poop around the edge of the yard, but I'm pretty sure
that this is a battle not easily won.

UK gardeners have some success with tights stuffed with human hair (from
barbers) hung from trees, although it will give your property that 'Pervy
Blair Witch' look.

I only have my little dane right now.
But, I do not let her out alone, my husband or I are always out with her, no
just putting her in the yard alone.

I will try the hair thing, but the other may be beyond my limits... haha.
Besides I don't want to ATTRACT the other unfriendly local wildlife, such as
mountain lions.

You can get bear (or for that matter, any hunted carnivore) scent at just
about any hunting shop.

Maybe you could talk to these ignorant people? And let them know that this act
will possibly lead to their deaths? We have had 2 recent incidents with people
feeding the coyotes. They got too bold, and of course, fish and game killed
them.

I used to have a yorkie terrier that kept them off, but my current pup is
just a bit young to trust her to defend herself yet.  =)

Animal control already has, the neighbors insist they are "being safe" about
it. We have talked about it many times, to no understanding on their part.
They are an older couple and set in their ways.
