deer scaring devices.
 
Does anyone have or know someone who has practical experience with any Deer scaring devices?

I can tell you that scientific evidence as to their efficacy is entirely lacking. I looked into them for an article recently.

won't scare them, but might save your life.
they're becoming a problem in australia too.
any new-fangled device will only give you a false sense of security.

safe riding,
