Why would someone have a free standing section of game fence? One of our neighbors has about 5k acres and has a section of game fence along the county road that bisects his property. It doesn't fence anything in, it's just about a half mile straight run of fence. Been that way for years. What gives?

Protection from road hunting poachers perhaps?

That's what I'd think, or they ran out of expendable funds

Key words....."county road."

I've also seen it and know the landowner who did that.

Keeps people off. Folks on the way out to where we hunt have both sides of the road done and one of the county roads. There's a public boat ramp at the end of their property and folks will park in the ditch and walk (and old road bed) to go fish on the rocks along the highway bridge. They put it up when they select cut the timber about 10 years ago.

There is a mini storage in Caldwell that had the road side of the place with 8' chain link and topped with razor wire, pretty normal, except the fence stopped at each corner! It was like that for several years, finally did the sides and back not long ago. I laughed every time I drove by that place.

My in-laws had a ranch owner next to them (10,000 acre ranch) partially high fence a corner of their place to minimize deer movement onto my in-laws place property.

The in-laws had a feeder about a 100 yards from their property line with many of their bigger bucks coming from that large ranch.

The neighbors set-up game cams on their side pointing towards my in-laws feeder for several months which led to the high fence being built.

Maybe they are trying to train their deer to the high fence.

I have thought about this for our place. We ave three neighbors. 2 of them plus us have a good mix of planted fields and woods. Lots of Oaks. We arent pros but we all do our best to manage the habitat and do the improvements we can. However the one neighbor just has a big field. Doesnt plant any cover crop or anything. just has stands 150 yds of our fence and feeders 75 yards off our fence. Its well within their rights and Id probably do the same thing, but I have often wondered what would happen if we had a high fence on that one side.

No worries. A complete high fence cannot be achieved when a 200 yard wide canyon runs through your property line. The deer simply found their way around the ending of the fence and still came to the feeder trout
