Here is a shot my buddy took last night. He was shooting at a deer inside the feeder pen made of hog panel. The deer ran off and he couldn't find any signs of blood. I was making fun of him for getting buck fever when he found the fence.

Had a guy at our place shoot his feeder leg. I have hit the top strand of barb wire twice.

I've never shot the fence, but have seen a friend shoot the feeder motor and a pass through shot on a doe took out a game camera. Bet he could never make that shot on the fence again

I have a pen made of range wire which is obviously quite a bit smaller diameter than that and still killed the pig I was shooting at. The ends of the wire I hit looked copper plated from the bullet. I've hit a feeder leg before too.

I've never done it, but have seen a couple of hog panels take a bullet like that before. That sucks for your buddy because I bet he could shoot at the hog panel 100 times and not hit it again.

i hit a feeder pen with my bow 2 years ago trying to shoot a hog, he then proceeded to partially tear down 2 sides trying to get out.

One time, back when I was a kid. Hit an old barbed wire fence with a 35Remington bullet. You'd think a punkin ball bullet like that might have made it to the deer, but no.

Not the fence but bow hunting onetime I hit the feeder leg. Must of been dead center cause it drove the broadhead about 4" up into the arrow shaft.

I hit a strand of barb wire from 700 yards one time.

Bad thing is, I was aiming at a piece of steel 14" x 14". hammer

No, but I was real worried about it once. But the bullet went through fine.
