Deer fence

I am considering buying the Deer X fencing as we have deer coming into our subdivision and munching on my vegetables.  Has anyone used this and can tell me how well it works?  What type of posts can be used to support the fencing?  Thanks

Re: Deer fence

I have never used the deer fencing that you speak of, but have an alternative you might be interested in. Put your fence post up on the outskirts of your garden and take twine or fly fishing line and run it all along the top of your fence like about chest level of the deer. At night when iti is dark the deer can't see it to jump, but they will run into with their chest and it will spook them and they won't bother your veggies at all. I have used this for 2 years now and have no bites out of anything. Plus I use the fence to grow my peas and beans up and they don't bother those either. I usually run a couple rows of twine so that I can utilize the space. Good luck with what ever you use.  Have a great day! Tracy
