Deer Habits


Deer fence deer damage

Some helpful knowledge about deer that has been gathered over the years of onsite estimates, fence installations and maintenance. 

  1. Deer will always try to go through or under a fence before trying to jump.
  2. Deer have poor eyesight so it is hard to determine the height of the fence– they don't want to jump over it.
  3. A starving deer will eat almost anything, except a barberry bush.
  4. Deer will always find an open area that hasn't been fenced. We highly recommend a complete enclosure.
  5. A 7 foot deer fence is high enough for deer control in most situations.
  6. Deer paths can be altered by properly installing our full perimeter deer fence system.
