A deer grate is a very heavy structure made of concrete (7000-9000 lbs) or metal (1800- 2500 lbs) that is placed over your driveway entrance, with deer fencing  or similar on either side. A deer grate has hollow slats in which the deer won't walk because of uneven footing.
A deer grate is used in place of or in addition to a driveway gate and is 100% effective when installed properly and maintained.

Concrete Deer Grate Example:

deer grate, deer guard
Our concrete deer grates are not to be confused with cattle grates or cattle guards. These grates have been proven to exclude deer and other animals and have the proper spacing for that purpose. Cattle guards typically have 5" or more spacing where deer grates have 3" spacing.

Concrete will never rust.
A concrete deer grate is extremely heavy and is unlikely to move over time.
Have engineered specifications and have been tested to accept any vehicles that can travel the roads.
Clean look when installed
Placed when delivered in your excavated hole
Cost, somewhat less expensive than steel grates
One year manufacturer defects warranty
Quick delivery and placement, usually one week from order
Very heavy, each grate weighs 8,000 lbs approximately and is difficult to move once placed
Although durable, the concrete
can be chipped by snow plows, etc over time
No removable cleanout slats. Manageable but not as easy to clean as a metal grate
Only available in specific sizes, as concrete is poured into forms to create grates
