Any of you that have a Tractor Supply store near you will find that they carry or can order 8 foot deer fencing and they have 10 foot T posts. Go to http://www.mytscstore.com/ to find a store near you.

  Your fence will need to be at least 8' high.  Ours is a standard 4' wire fence with 4 electrical wires 1' apart above that.  if the electric fence is not on, the deer will still get through between the 1' wires above 4' wire.  We have actually seen one buck hold the wires with his antlers while the other hop through over the 4' fence.  

  US Fence has a deer fence that can be found at http://secure.cartsvr.net/catalogs/catalog.asp?prodid=2950848 in 7.5' and 10' heights.  another type of fence is found at http://www.northcoastweb.com/deerfence/deercontrolframe.html.  Hope this helps!

    My in-laws property is always invaded by deers. Unfortunately all their vegetable crops are eaten by the deers daily. So we tried putting a temporarily fence, we used the flurencent plastic fence that's commonly used in construction. The deers have pushed it down and walked right into the plantings. So this year we need to build a sturdy fence that can keep the deers and other creatures away. 
    My question is how high does the fence have to be so the deers want jumb above it?
    We need the lowest cost possible, since the fencing area is 50'x50' square.
