Deer Fence Posts

metal fence post with metal guide wire


Make sure your deer fence posts are tough enough to do the job. Remember, the fence post must be able to handle a 200-plus pound animal banging on it, pushing on it and leaning on it.

If you choose a wood fence post, make sure you use a 5″ round or better; we have seen 4 x 4 posts snapped in two from deer impact. Perhaps the easiest and most natural-looking posts are mature trees. Poly deer fencing from Deer Fence USA will easily zig zag from tree to tree. One last point, if you are installing a large number of posts or if you are a fence contractor, you owe it to yourself to check out the Post Pounder gas-powered post driver. We highly recommend it.

We offer two different types of fence posts for sale. Both our Ultra Deer Fence Posts and our Freedom Deer Fence Posts have performed very well in our trials, and we highly recommend both of them.


Freedom Deer Fence Posts

Our steel Freedom Deer Fence Posts are made from recycled railroad rails with a black powder-coated finish. These strong angle posts are made of very hard steel and can be either dug in or driven into the ground. You may drive the posts with a sledgehammer or with the REDI driver. These posts are so hard that often they will punch right through the rock. For best results space 10′-12′ apart. No Driver Cap or sleeves required!

Ultra Deer Fence Posts

These are our premium fence posts at prices that no other kits can match. The kit includes high-strength, 1 5/8” round black-coated steel posts, black post caps, and galvanized steel inserts (these eliminate any digging of holes or getting on ladders to drive posts). Use one of our Driver Caps (one lasts for approximately 50 posts) to drive the sleeve into the ground with a sledgehammer and then just slide the post right in! Ultra Heavy Deer Fence Posts should be spaced about 15′ apart. Note: A Driver Cap is required for these posts.

Why steel fence posts are second to none

Steel posts won’t warp, crack, or split, which is a common headache with wood posts. Steel is also reinforced against fading or bending to eradicate fencing issues that often result from using vinyl posts. Once steel posts are installed, you can rest assured they will stand strong for decades.

Besides, our metal fence posts for sale are: 

  • Impervious to moisture 
  • Unfazed by temperature swings
  • Unaffected by insects and decay

Our steel fence posts require almost no ongoing maintenance to keep them in tip-top condition. You never need to paint or seal them, except for an occasional rinse with a hose to remove dirt and debris. Compare that to wood posts that must be regularly maintained to protect them from weathering. 

Our steel posts are a more budget-friendly choice when you factor in the cost of continually replacing rotting wood and the labor required for frequent maintenance. With our competitive fence post prices, they let you get maximum value and protection for your investment. 

If you’re concerned about waste, metal posts are a sustainable pick. Choosing them means fewer trees are cut down for wood fencing. Plus, our Ultra Deer and Freedom products rely on recycled steel.
