I have a very small place, (50 Acres), and was thinking about putting a few Black Bucks on it. I was told that they will not jump a 4' goat wire fence unless pushed very hard. Anyone know if this is true. I would hate to invest all the time and money to do it and then watch my Black Bucks run to the nearest fence and jump it.

We have a herd of +/- 30 in S. TX, I have never seen one do it, but that's not to say they couldn't. We placed 4' fencing around certain areas of the property to keep them out and not seen any jump the fence yet, even watched a buck bounce off the fence trying to get through it when we spooked it.

I would worry more about the predators coming through the fence than the blackbucks jumping over it.

I see a coyote about once a year. And have a bobcat on camera. Will the bobcat take one down.

No experience with them personally but I have an uncle that has shot several of them on his hill country lease. He said he has watched them for a long period of time try to find a way to crawl through or under a 4' sheep and goat net wire fence and never try to jump it.

You see them once a year...right now.

Your talking about bringing in more food for them now. So you will be seeing more of them in the area at some point. We didn't see bobcats in our area at all when I was growing up where I'm at now. The year the high fence was put up we caught 9. We see or kill one every other year or so since then. Coyotes were always here but they did try to hang around more. If you go with high fence you won't have to worry about them going over it so much. They can easily go over a 4' fence. I have seen them climb in a corner on the high fence to get out when they knew I was chasing them and could not find a hole quick enough to get out.

If you've seen one coyote I would imagine there are others. I would definitely be concerned with the bobcat, if for no other reason than it will prey on the young.

Thanks for the insight. I want to put up a 4' goat wire fence so that the white tail bucks and does can still jump it and into my property. Someone said that I would need a 5' fence, but I'm afraid that the does might not want to jump it and would just go else where leading the bucks with them.

Here is the photo of the one coyote that I have seen this year. Look at what the doe is looking at to see him.

I have close to 10 hd of blackbuck in a half acre pen that's cattle panel they do fine in there and get used to you after awhile when I put feed out for them they love the berry flavored deer nuggets, but when I was in there once looking at the fawns an male did jump out and he hung around the pen for a very long time and with the coyotes if they get a small hole they will kill the herd,
