    had a doe and two fawns in garden today....and when i walked down ...i could see where the doe had bedded the fawns down...so suggestions of successful fences would be nice...with all the stats ....height of fence etc...electric or just angled? we are thinking of beginning by adding an electric to the existing fence and baiting it with peanut butter on foil....sounds a wee bit crazy

    You could try some motion detection lights.

    Just invite that hunter over that you were talking about, and tell him to hang out for a while.
    BOOM BOOM BOOM problem solved.

    it will solve the problem. And probably more humane than killing them by electric current :dunno:
