While doing my morning rounds and starting along the path to the trail cam, I immediately noticed something odd about one of the fence wires.
It’s hard to see in the photo, but one of the wires is all bent out of shape.
On the wire below, I could see why.
A couple of barbs has tufts of deer fur stuck in them.
The electrical cord that powers our lights by the gate runs along the top wire of the fence. It’s big and thick, making it quite visible, even in the dark (at least for a deer!). My guess is, the deer tried to duck under the electrical wire, but didn’t see the barbed wire below and got hung up.
I really want to get rid of this fence.
