Re: New guy in Georgia
> Being in the North Georgia mountains on 6 acres next to National Forest, I need to spend a good amount of time considering location of the hives as well as bear & critter proofing.
IMO, find a spot that gets full sun, or as close as possible. If you only get partial sun, make it morning sun. And make the location close enough to AC power so that you can electrify your bear fence with a charger plugged into the power grid. From what I see, while solar powered chargers work initially, for a while, but they are higher cost upfront and will ultimately be a source of frustration and additional expense.
