Sure not skimping on price, panels are tough, but not cheap!

I can buy over a thousand ft. of panels for each dead Ibex. Digging down next to the existing fence with the dozer then wiring up the panels. "Knock on wood" so far have not had any coyotes dig under or Axis tear up what I have put up.

Don't blame you one bit, if they don't rust, they should be there alooong time. "cheap" insurance for sure.

Spensive!

But easier than 5' Red Brand non-climb that I will be encircling the shop and house with to keep cpyotes and hogs out of my yard.

We did the same thing just a matter of time before they dig under it just nature of the beast. Don't get me wrong it helps but you will still have to drive the fence once a month looking for holes. If you can bend or find some U shape rebar and drive it down on the bottom in the middle of every panel it helps a lot of work but it helps keep it down close to the ground. Good luck!

Most of the place they would need carbide tipped claws to dig under. I am tying it to the existing net wire fence so it is not moving. And yes I check the fences more than once a month.

Hog panel is better, will save on stretching labor but probably will cost more in the long run. Best thing for coyotes is keeping mesh on the bottom, bury holes by pushing rocks, logs, etc. on the holes, and snare the holes they make and or cover them again and again! Hard to win against coyotes though. They just keep coming. Good luck.

How are hog panels better? These are 4"X4"X 48"X 20' long galvanized panels. You don't stretch them.
