Deer Fence Articles – Sources on Deer Fencing

A Deer Reading a BookHere’s a list of articles on deer fencing that can help you get a feeling for the subject. McGregor Fence does not necessarily agree with all the ideas presented. 

By and large, however, the authors of these articles are doing what they should. That is, in the face of a serious deer overpopulation problem, they are laying out what they see as an available solution as best they can. 

So take a look at these articles, get a feel for the subject, and then come back and browse our planning pages or contact a McGregor expert. You’ll be glad you did.
