So it turns out my neighbor to the East is building a high fence along our whole property line on that side. He cleared both sides of the existing fence (without seeking our, or the land owner's permission, BTW) by 20 yards or so.

Whatever. Lemons into lemonade. I now have an 800 yard sendero. Thing is, I'd be putting a stand nearly next to a fence. There's plenty of access for the deer still come onto our property from the north and south, so I don't think it's going to affect travel that much. It may even help that he's closed himself of with his own little island, I don't know. I do know it's in poor taste to put a stand on a fence line, but does that still apply if it's a high fence?

What say ye? Would it be worth the effort to put a stand in such a place as to take advantage of my new, free, sendero?

Because there is now a high fence dividing the property's there should be no issue with you putting up a blind on the fence line. Maybe he has done you a favor by clearing you a sendero and maybe a food plot. He knows that your blind will only allow you to hunt deer from your side of the fence.

I would put a stand on it without hesitation. If you wanted to be as neighborly as possible about it, don't put a window on that side or block it off if your blind has one on that side.

I wouldn't give two thoughts about it, high or low fence. As long as you're restricting your shots into your property and placing feeders into your property, why not.

On our low fence ranch, I have a blind about 100 yards off our neighbor to the west that is high fenced. The previous owner said big bucks travel that fence line (our side) and he was not kidding. It's our most productive blind.

On our high fence ranch, we have a neighbor with blind right on the fence looking over a food plot with a feeder 100 yards away from the fence. It does not bother me a bit. We don't have a blind near it and honestly, the deer on our place don't travel much n that area.

If our blind is 100 yds off the fence, and you are shooting at deer along the fenceline, how do you prevent your bullets from crossing the fence?

My blind set up is not facing the fence. The fence runs north-south west of my blind set up and my shooting lane is south southeast. There are two game trails that run north-south paralleling the fence line, but about 150 and 200 yards east of the fence line.

Sounds like you have a pretty good neighbor to me. He cleared a lot of brush off a fence line and made you a nice cleared area to make a good plot. He did all the hard work for you! Should be no problem putting a stand on the fence line as long as your not shooting into his place.

I personally would not like it. I would not do it to a neighbor and I don't expect them to do it to me. I have cleared along neighbors fence lines with my dozer. It helps when checking fence and keeps trees from damaging the fence.

I would put a stand up on the fence line because no deer will be crossing the fence so it should not matter.

If it wasn't a high fence, I could see your point. But since it is a high fence, I would do as stated above and not have a window facing his property, and would plant a food plot and hunt my property the best I could. Now if it wasn't a high fence, it would understand the issue a little more

Why would you insist on having a blind on the fence line when you could have it inside your property a ways and not be bothered with what your neighbor has going on?
