Electric Fence Installation

After flowers, shrubs, trees and vegetables are destroyed some people consider deer a good source of food rather than pretty big eyed harmless creatures. Installing an electric fence is the best method I have found for deterring deer.

My first electric fence was a DC model with a deep cycle battery. probably OK but at the time I had not installed three ground rods and only had a single strand of fence wire...not as effective as I wanted.

Next I installed an AC powered continuous current electric fence...after a dead goose, chicken, possum and numerous birds I retired this charger

My current electric fence is a intermittent pulsing fence. I have three ground rods, a lightening arrestor and 2, 3 and 4 strands of electric fencing. This fence is effective and safe.
