If it is possible, I would put a hot wire on the top of the fence. One touch, and that deer will not be back.

Another method that works well is the SSS. Shoot - Shovel - Shut-up
Although, if I shoot one as a nuisance animal, I am going to clean it and eat it.

No shovel needed, just a knife and meat grinder.

1/4 cup of minced garlic and a beaten egg in a gallon of water, let sit a couple hours strain it into a sprayer. It works. But I wouldn't spray it on thing's you want to eat. But spray it around your garden. Another thing that works for a small area is a radio playing at night. Quiet enough that it doesn't bother you. Or make a scare crow. Or hang a sweaty work shirt in there

I have had good success with mono fishing line. Run at couple feet high all the way around...they won't like not being able to see what is touching them.

My father in law used bags of dog hair he got from a groomer. It would work once the corn got high enough to hide a dog. He didn't even have a fence.

I trust the garlic egg spray mix more than my deer fence. A fence can fail the spray never does. Been spraying my asparagus I'm letting grow out.. The dear eat the tips off it and mess it up.
