Re: [nafex] deer prevention

I wonder if some monofilament is more visible than others.  Someone
hypothesized on this board that deer are spooked by feeling something
they can't see.  Certainly, they will push over a wire fence that is
much stronger than a monofilament fence.

Does it help to put the monofilament where it will be shaded at dusk?
