|Trip Bar added to center section|
Deer have a path and pretty much stick to it. A couple of years ago I added a "Trip Bar" to the central section of this fence, the area of the path and the place where the deer began to impale themselves. It works great and actually doesn't look too bad, framing the fence and offering the deer an embarrassing moment of misjudgement when they trip over it rather than the final jump of a misstep.
I think they are hunting for a new path now or maybe they are leaderless because they are attempting to jump the fence just about everywhere. Mostly they succeed but failure is permanent and messy, painful and slow. They just sort of hang there as if from a meat hook and bleed to death.
So, I am out to save the deer and I got a job! Not often one can be virtuous, do the right thing and get paid for it. Nice farmer, huh? and just before Christmas I've got work to do! about 240 feet of "Trip Bar" to be added to the entire fence line.
Okay, on a different note! I solved the paint in my hair problem. It is amazing to me how many people couldn't resist pointing it out to me. I must have heard "you've got paint in your hair" about a hundred times!
