Anti-Deer Fence (2D Scented 5-Strand)
Consists of 5 strands of electrified rope on FiberRod™ line posts with insulated steel or wood posts at ends and corners.
Fence was effective for most of the year around a commercial tree nursery that previously had high deer damage. Deer breeding season is an exception for most pain barriers because bucks stop for nothing when does are "in season."
CostAs low as 68¢ per ft.
Always rebait the scent caps before periods of high deer activity and ideally every 10 days for the rest of the season. Use scent caps as a method to attract deer and other wildlife to a fence. To be used as an aid to train animals that the fence is energized.
- Drive the posts
- Attach insulators
- Insert and tension rope. Keep strands low to prevent deer crawling under them. Place one strand at nose height of a walking deer. Add scent caps and bait them with apple scent
- Use a wide impedance energizer. Voltage should be above 3500

We offer many fences to fit your situation, including different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Questions? Call our fence consultants at
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
