Re: [nafex] deer prevention

This is a tested method by the Dept of Ag in PA.
I believe the final tested method was 2 strands on one fence at 2 feet and 4 feet
and one strand about 4 feet away at 30 inches.
But you could check with them. They used to have a booklet on it about 25 years
They were all electrified.
