    lol. for real though me and the wife were out shopping all day the deer netting looks to cheap and the orange/black snow fence is gonna look like crap
    i have 300 feet to do and it has to be economical and temporary ( for the winter )
    But i guess my main question is does the electric fence shock anywhere on a deer? or just like their nose and mouth

    If it's anything like a horse fence, whatever touches it will get zapped.

    Try bar soap as an experiment. A lot of old apple orchards around me used to hang bar soap around the perimeter. I don't know if it worked or not. Use to see it out hunting in the fall.

    Try talking to your state wildlife people or biologists. Maybe they can offer some suggestions. Maybe coyote urine or something like that. I'm not used to trying to keep them away. It's usually the other way around.

    Your plants might be saved with subsailor's recommendation. There are a number of long time homeowners that have used that on shrubs around their homes with some success.

    Like most repellent methods it will fail once the critter gets really hungry..

    You shouldn't need a very large zapper to cover that area, you do however need to make sure you have it well grounded or it will be useless.

    Visit a feed store and see what they have available, a lot of horse and chicken keepers use them. There used to be about 3600 feet of the yellow electro-rope around the pasture next door, the zapper was just a about the size of a car battery and could have driven a lot more fencing.

    Blue seal and TSC usually have the chargers in stock. You can use any post to hold the insulators. Just don't let the wire touch the post.

    I guess the big guy didn't repel em?

    i was at TSC today and she was looking at them and of course i said i dont want that lol
    now im considering that. that was a fluke the other night they usually dont go there but if you look to the left of the video you will see a small treeline i planted its 100 feet and 45 trees
    so if they feast its gonna be costly but more importantly i lose my privacy fence
