    Electric probably your better choice simply because the last thing you would want to deal with is a deer stuck inside your fencing. They freak out and can seriously injure themselves. Unless you can go 15 feet high, I seldom recommend enclosed gardens without a roof to keep deer out for that reason. I have one, but I didn't fully enclose it so the deer can escape without human intervention should they get in it. I don't have a proper gate, preferring just poles closely spaced which usually keeps the bigger ones out. Keeping them out usually keeps the little ones out as well. To my knowledge I only had 1 deer in it this year.

    I know dogs can be shot for chasing deer…..

    But I be damned if someone is going to put my dog down.....

    My dogs are family members...…….

    They will be protected as such......
