This guy has been checking out one of my remote yards about every5-10 days so far no hits, I have solar electric fence, motion detected siren, and solar LED blinking night eyes. This is a great yard with season long great forage. He got my neighbors dumpster a couple of times. I also run my 3 dogs around the hill to keep him moving I guess he's waiting for me to slip up. As long as it stays fun, this ones a lot of work.

So my question is where is the electric fence???......It looks like it's on the inside of the sheep fence that is attached to the posts that are pounded into the ground.....and light posts at that (not T posts) ...If you havn't been hit I don't think it's because this bad boy got a shock, it's because he was confused by the sheep fence and a young bear that is inexperenced.....I would put the electric outside of the sheep fence and use heavier posts....ITS A BEAR!!!

Your are right its on the inside of the sheep fence if all is well next week when I return I am going to lay chicken wire around the perimeter attached to the ground. This has been going on this way for 2 seasons now. The first season with no e fence I got ripped to shreds. Speaking of seasons bear season opens next month, he got my sons intrest.

Chicken wire on the ground won't stop him/her. It might improve your ground if you have extremely dry or rocky soil and you attach your ground to the chicken wire. But I'd move the hot wire to the outside top, turn the juice up, and smear some bacon grease on it. One lick and there will be a new level of respect for your fence.
