Next Project: Convert Horse Fence to Deer Fence

The local deer are enjoying meals of my rye grass and vetch cover crop! They have also learned that I have terrible aim and the rocks I throw will not hit them.

We used the tractor to pull out a bunch of the horse fencing.

Our next step is to extend the existing fence the length of my property. It will be much higher than the horse fence!

I plan to only fence areas where I will grow crops. There is plenty for the deer to eat on the edges of my property that I am leaving wild to provide natural habitat to hopefully attract birds and beneficial insects!
