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 posts make sure you use a 5″ round of 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 posts driver. We highly recommend it.
Our steel Freedom Deer Fence Posts are made from recycled railroad rails with a black powder coated finish. These strong angle post are made of very hard steel could be either dug in or driven into the ground. You may drive the posts with a sledge hammer or with the REDI driver. These post 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
This is our premium post system. 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 drives 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.
Deer fence access gates are available in a variety sizes. Each access gate comes with all the pieces required to assemble the gate including posts, hardware, tubular gate frame, 4 corners and nuts and bolts. These garden gates are made from very high quality tube that is galvanized first and then powder coated black. Our gates will provide years of trouble free service.
Our gate kits have been designed to give you a maximum amount of flexibility. For example, if a 4 foot wide gate is wider than what is appropriate for your application, just cut the two horizontals by the desired measurement and you now have a custom gate. Similarly, keep an eye on the height of the fence. Remember we recommend flaring the fence and pinning it to the ground so deer, dogs, and other critters cannot crawl under. Thus if you are purchasing a 6′ roll of fence it will install at 5 1/2 feet. To make the 6′ high gate match properly either shorten the two vertical tubes of the gate by a few inches or better yet, to finish at a true 6′ you’ll need to “stack the fence” with a hem of chew protection barrier.
For all the larger driveway gates we do recommend concrete for both the hinge and the latch post.
