The field*below*my house is*2 acres and has a nice slope to it.* I've laid out a pen design*and would love to hear feedback*whether good or bad.* I know the pens are super small & will greatly limit the # of deer I can have.* Based on township ordinance I can only have approx.*2000 lbs. of*deer anyway for my size property.* Any thoughts???

I'd be sure to get a few big trees transplanted in there now, so they can get established and you'll have some more shade.

Not that I have any experience, but I personally would NOT like the thought of having the road right there unless it's not busy at all. My*pen is visible from the road and though view mostly blocked by trees' foliage during growing season, all kinds of people notice the tall fence and try to see what's back there. Increased risk of any kind of "mischief". For sure would attach shade cloth to prevent folks from pulling in and checking out your deer. I'm sometimes a little worried about somebody messing around here when I'm not home.

We have been raising deer since 1979 and the fear of somebody screwing with your deer never goes away.
