Keeping Hogs From Deer Feeder

Went with a friend to check his hog traps south of Walters, OK. The guys on that lease have a neat way of keeping hogs away from the deer feeders. They split a pig panel lengthwise and build an 18" high fence around the feeder. T-posts are cut in two for posts. They put a post about every four feet.

The deer just hop over the fence but the hogs stay out.

Electric fence would keep them at bay, as hogs really hate being zapped. After a while, you can turn it off and they still won't cross that line. Farrowing domestic hogs in open pens made of electric fence, it was a tough job to get them out when we wanted to, weeks later!

Zplinker is correct about hogs and hot wires.

The problem is deer have absolutely NO respect for a hot wire and will run through one and tear it down faster than you can keep it repaired. Ask me how I know this.
