The pigs have found my gravity feeder. How high should I build an enclosure where deer get in but keep the hogs out, and suggested circumference?

My pen is made from 34" tall hog panels. 48' square.

Yep, hog panels. I'd use a minimum of 6 twenty footers...if not eight. I'd also consider rather than putting then in a circular pattern to put them into a square pattern.

Go round, animals don't like corners.

I build mine with cattle panels and cut the tops off. I like the hog panels but can buy the cattle panels cheaper. I also build them round.

we build them 15 panels around so the Mulies will still get in if you are in an area where Mulies are....

Just to fence gravity feeders I would buy cattle panels and cut them in half. It takes a heck of a lot more pen to keep hogs in than it does out.
