Dear All,

Having read so many times that there is a lot of damage caused by browsing deer, I cannot remember anybody suggested electric fencing. Is there a reason? Is it forbidden?

Electric fencing is not obtrusive and relatively cheap to install. It can be fitted with a timer to avoid accidental contact during the day time.

It needs to be properly installed to be effective. Here in Europe it is the only means to protect against wild boar. The lowest wire has to be 10cm above ground which is snout level of the boar. They learn quickly and will touch the wire only once......

Shouldn't the same work with deer? At a different position of the wires?

Bye for now
