A fellow AgFuse member wrote this article: "Deer Damage and What Farmers Can Do About It." He lists some pointers and resources about fencing and also touches on additional options for minimizing deer damage including the use of livestock guardian dogs, electronic deer deterrents, and hunting.

One of those linked-to resources in the article is from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and lists eleven "Electric Deer Barrier Principles” to keep in mind along with some general advice as to what electric fence designs will actually be effective.
