HogNet® 10/24/12 Electric Netting
- 10 horizontal strands
- 24 in. tall
- Vertical struts every 12 in.
- Posts (built-in) every 12.5 ft., .51 dia.
- Post spikes (SS): .26" dia., 6" long.
The bottom strand is neutral and rests on the soil/grass. The lowest live strand is only 4" above it. The next 6 live wires are only 2" apart. It can be easily changed into a Pos/Neg form for dry sites.
The fence is as visible to hogs at night as possible (contrasting black and white).
As those who live in wild hog country know only too well, feral hogs are a rapidly growing problem with no simple solution.
Regrettably, the hogs are as smart as they are aggressive and destructive. So it’s common for them to find ways through, under or over physical barrier fences.
However, electrified fences do work and work well. Why? Hogs use their nose/snout to investigate new situations. The bare nose ensures that contact with an energized strand will send a hog-stopping pulse (if the energizer is large enough) through the hog.
We experimented with domestic Pig QuikFence for stopping feral hogs in Mississippi. Netting was installed around a baited site that wild hogs frequented. It worked for 10 days—and then failed.
Why? 2 causes:
- The spaces under the suspended lower wire were too large (6")—allowing the hogs to reach under the fence with their snout to reach the corn on the inside.
- Hogs are known for occasionally charging forward instead of moving backwards when shocked by an electric fence.
When the lead hog pushed its nose under the fence to reach the corn it received a shock—and reacted by charging forward, taking the net with it.
So we modified the netting design to prevent feral hogs from poking their snouts under or through the electric netting before receiving a shock.
Why is Feral HogNet less expensive than other netting?
Because it’s new—and we’re looking for folks with hog problems who will try it and report their results to us. (If it does not work you can ship the product back for a full refund.) We will keep the price low until the nets have been in use for several months.
How to hook up Feral HogNet
For dry conditions: Connect energizer fence lead to positive "+" net clip and energizer ground lead to ground rod. then connect a PowerLink from negative "-" net clip to ground rod.
For moist conditions: Connect both net clips together and attach energizer fence lead to net clips. Then attach energizer ground lead to ground rod.

To purchase HogNet 10/24/12
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: A 150 ft fence requires one 100 ft net and one 50 ft net.).
- Choose extra support posts for ends, major curves and corners.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and a fence tester.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
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.
