Well. We own a 150 acre farm/ranch that borders a large ranch on three sides and a larger cotton field on one side. We have enjoyed deer hunting on this place for over 50 years and i was hoping my children and grandchildren would as well. Just received word that a larger corporate hunting outfitter has leased the hunting rights to the ranch that we border on three sides and they will be putting up a high fence on all three sides. The cotton farmer on the west side of us put up a high fence several years ago.

That being said we our deer population will take a hit and maybe be non existant. we have no water on our place and the only real use for the place was recreation.

I dont thing a 150 acre ranch will sustain many deer with no water source and very little browse. We cant afford to feed year round.

The high fencing will lower the value of our property now and render it almost useless.

Put some water on your place. May not be what you wanted but can still work. What county are you in? If it is in an area that supports relatively hi densities you might be ok.

There is no ground water available we've drilled many dry wells. We have two tanks that hold water for about 2 weeks after a rain. The ranch we border has several wells about 3 miles away from our border and we've tried to negotiate an easement with the rancher to get water to our place but he wanted a pretty penny for it.

He made a low ball offer to buy our land last week. Sadly, we may have to take it. It wouldnt be worth much to anyone but him now.

Sounds grim. Sad when when their is that much family history in a place.

Line your ponds with Bentonite.

Once the fence is up, may tell the neighbor your price went because of the fence, cost allot to HF your 125 acres grin

We have agreed to pay for our half of the cost of the high fence.

You can also put in water catchment systems that will keep you in water for wildlife year round if done right.

Why would you do that?

What county is this that has no ground water?

Why dont you sell out to the guy who is putting up the high fence? Given that your cotton neighbor already has a high fence, you might save him alot of money avoiding the cost of new fencing...

You know I agree he should be responsible for paying his half of the fence. Not a high fence, but the cost of a 5 strand barbed wire. It is the other land owner that choose to go high fence, so you should not be obligated to the to pay more than that normal low fence. I do this with our neighbors and it works out well for everyone.

Ok but what if there is nothing wrong with the current low fence?

There is many angles you can use to raise the price of your land.

If the fence is in great condition, then no, I would tell him that you do not want him to take out the fence which is half yours, and he needs to slide in his property to build his fence. We slide alot of our fences in on our side because we do not want anyone connecting on to them.
