Deer Fence Innovation - Video
Watch this video - Joe Wave of Wave's U-Pick Blueberries in Kaleva, Michigan talks about his innovative deer fence.
The 8' fence, angled to the outside of the blueberry patch, is easy to build and easy to move.
Simple in design, his deer fence uses seven strands of wire. He says it cost him $.40 per foot to build!
Prior to building the fence, the patch typically yielded 3,500 pounds of berries. The season after he built the fence, the yield was up to 14,000 pounds.
The Virginia Cooperative Extension released a document entitled "Low-Cost Slant Fence Excludes Deer from Plantings" which reports on a study they did using this type of inexpensive deer fence.
What do you think of this solution?
Would it be something you'd want to use?
Have you seen other deer fences that differ from the 8' tall barriers that are most common?
