About Us Mark & Anna

Mark and AnnaThe deer deterrent plans outlined on this site are the brainchild of Mark Hamilton.  Mark is an inventor who homesteads with his wife, Anna (who made this site), in southwest Virginia. 

Mark's previous invention is an automatic chicken waterer that keeps poop out of his poultry's water.  He has several other projects in the pipeline --- visit our homestead blog for more information.

We're always excited to hear from other folks who have given our deer deterrent plans a shot.  Drop us an email at to share your pictures, problems, or innovations.  We'll update this website to make the DIY plans easier to use for the next people.

About Us - Jayne Wead
Jayne grew up in Xenia, Ohio back in the fifties, always outdoors following her Daddy around learning the secrets of urban gardening.
Water was hand carried in a galvanized metal watering can with a sprinkler spout.  Rows were hand done with a big wheel plow.
Bounties harvested and life lessons learned, today she still is a all country.  
Jayne started contributing to the blog in April 2012 and she and her partner are perfecting the
New Deterrent that is the spin off of Mark's invention.
