Sorry, that's not going to work in the fall or spring when your crops are
the only good source of deer food.  Farming in the middle of a large forest
leaves me with a major deer problem so I've tried about everything.  What I
have found to work the best is a woven wire fence (it doesn't have to be
that tall) with a baited electric fence wire on top.  I use peanut butter.
I also have housed pigs in the field the deer come through to get my crops
This has provenn amazingly effective for elliminating that route of attack.
