On a serious note try hanging bars of Irish Spring around your garden.
I've been doing it for a couple of years but I can't really make a
statement about it's efficacy because I don't get that many deer. I got
the idea from the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in
Vermont, they were using it around their gardens.

Have you tried predator urine? I've been using Fox and Coyote urine to
keep away groundhogs and raccoons away, it seems to have worked. Once
again I can't make a scientific statement but the theory behind predator
urine seems a little better then the theory behind Irish Spring.

As I recall I paid $15 or $20 for each bottle (1 Fox and 1 Coyote), they
lasted all summer. The stuff I bought was essentially kitty litter that
was soaked in urine, it came in shaker bottles. I applied it about once a
month. BTW the previous year I tried dumping my cat's litter box in the
groundhog holes, it was a huge mistake. Modern scoopable litter turns
into a slurry when it gets wet and it never dries, it's essentially
quicksand. The muck was still there a year later, I expect it will be
there for many years to come. They use the old fashion stuff for the
predator urine so that wasn't a problem.

I've used fox urine as a scent mask while hunting deer. It does not
deter them. Foxes and in some places coyotes are around deer all the
time. Soap and other repellents are also largely ineffective. The only
things guaranteed to work are fences and netting.
