How's your fence? (Electric vs. non-electric for deer)
Hi all, I need to fence a 1-acre field for my mixed vegetables. What are your experiences with your fences, especially related to white-tailed deer? I am debating between non-electric (8' black plastic mesh) and electric, but think I'd prefer electric (it seems as though it is more effective). How tall is your electric fence? Is it 3D (two fences side by side)? Does it exclude raccoons, rabbits, and/or woodchucks? Other points of consideration with electric are: posts (how's fiberglass for strength and longevity?), solar vs. standard power, etc.
I would like to hear about what has and has not worked for you.
By the way, the deer presence here in RI is heavy.
