Explaining Deer Proof Fences In South Texas
The deer proof fences here are built by the owner of a ranch to keep the deer in, not out. Either because they lease their ranch out for hunting or want to keep the deer for themselves and family. Ranch owners here seem to think the deer and wildlife on their property belong to them. When John and I lived on the ranch the wild hogs were just starting to come in so we started trapping them. We ate a lot of the meat and transported the larger ones to a company that bought them if they were of a certain size. They advertised them as Wild Boar and sold and shipped the meat out. One of the neighbors got quite upset with us but as time went on and there were more and more hogs doing damage many people were trapping and shooting and some still do.
