Joe, thats ok, most dont know I sell netting for birds as well as sporting fence. The net works great and I even sold it to someone once in California for vultures or some kind of big bird out there. Lots of sizes available and strengths as well.

Yes, I sell heavy duty netting that would be placed over the top of the fawn area and attached to the fence at the top. It is very string and durable and would not beed to be up all the time unless a person would choose to leave it up.

We put plastic barrels with the ends cut out of them in our pens around the edges. We stuff them with hay and the fawns like to lay in them. It keeps them warm, dry and out of sight of predators. If it is eagles or hawks, a lot of time you will find them dead and can see they've been pecked at. Either way, the fawn shelters are inexpensive and if they save even one fawn - worth it.

I lost fawns last year from foxes. Born one day taged and the next day just gone. The foxes would jump in about five holes up on the fence. I had not given foxes a thought till I found a den of pups and there were my fawns legs and tags. Not many owls can lift a fawn up over an eight foot fence in my opinion so would be eaten right there on the spot leaving some sign of how they died.

UPDATE I feel small fawns found thanks to other does letting it milk it made it and the other was in high grass, some how the one got into another pen that had mother and 2 more that we could not get moved into the main fawn and mother pen. I got some good ideas from everyone I like the plastic barerals and still may use the net next year and elect on fence. right now this is 2nd year and we will have to try to buy stuff next year. we are expanding pens and have close to 30 head now. and they are eating better than us. good luck to all of you and your herd.

We use this black 4' x 100' fence on the side of our 2096-6 fence for preditors and also for fawns and antlers. it works really good for us. Call me if you want some rolls, I sell it and have shipped it all over the USA for that very reason. I get it specially made so it is extra thick and durable. We use a 4' fiberglass pole to secure it to the fence and wind passes through it easily.

This is what we use to protect our fawns. The wooded rack has small spaces so that does cannot get in. The wooded rack serves as shelter for the fawns and we also have a small feeder with Calf Manna that we give them starting at 1mo old. We then start mixing it with our regular feed 1mo prior to weaning.







The tubes are 36" pvc tubes that we bury about 5in into the ground. It has worked great as we do have a bunch of eagles and cara caras.



Best,



E

Wayne that is correct but this is about twice as heavy, I get it specially made for the thickness so preditors just cannot chew through it. Call me for the current price, thanks pal and good to hear from you.
