I would like to build a high fence around my ranch. On one side I have a neighbor that enjoys my deer that come onto his property. The fence is on the property line. Would this neighbor have any legal right to not let me raise the fence?

No. I haven't bought any yet but my place has many more deer than his. Good range management!

You said they were your deer that he enjoys so you must have bought animals he is shooting. hammer

My buddy put a one mile fence up on one side a guy was day leasing. Just put it inside of his so no raising needed or questions asked. Our neighbor did his little pasture and same thing, put it inside so old fence is still there. He bought ear tagged deer.

Where we live, we have to jackhammer every post hole. I would like to raise the existing fence. Are there any rules or laws that would prevent that? If so, could someone direct me to them so that I could see the specifics.

Is the property in a POA?
As long as the fence is 'for sure' on the property line or just inside your side of the PL no one can do anything about it.

What do you mean by " my deer "? you don't own them, if you bought them for release on your property you'd already have the necessary TPWD permits.

This article covers most of your question---> TPWD magazine

That article is from 2003 as an op ed. You need a survey to show where your property lines are unless you build it inside the current fence.

Then you're in business, as long as there isn't a POA and your heart can take the estimate/cost of xx miles of high fence.

It's easier & cheaper to inset the HF a few feet in your property, & just leave the old LF in its place.

Oh, & people here will get severely butt-hurt if you don't allow your neighbors to shoot all the deer.

Your neighbors may be wounded vets, who are all preachers, just tryin to feed their families & teach their kids about hunting, by shooting every deer they see on their 40 acres. You can't have nice deer, its for the chillun'

To high fence or not is everyone's given right and not something I'd ever take from a person. I've seen it used very strategically and tactically necessary down in South Texas a many number of times. Personally, I am against both small property hunters and large property hunters whom over hunt and over harvest the deer populations as it happens both ways.

Oh, & people here will get severely butt hurt if you shoot deer on your own property even if you adhere to every rule, regulation, limit & law in place.

Actually, some folks around here are always on the look out for the most minuscule somethings to be butt hurt about & have such thin skin there is no way to reason with them & resort to childish name calling instead of adult conversation.

What's even funnier is, there are a few that actually think they own the deer on their property, better yet they think they should have a say in or be able to control what neighboring land owners can do on their own property, even if what they're doing is 100% by the book legal...

You gotta watch out for the closet left wing liberals around here.
You know, the ones that believe property owners rights should only pertain to them, not their neighbors... Because deer.

'muh freezer, amirite?

A day hunt operators on 10 acres is legally entitled to shoot 100 deer if they cross his place, carrying capacity be damned. If your ok with that, keep your LF. Some people ain't, so they HF. Then idiots bellyache about it, b cause they are cut off from "their deer".
