Had it 'loosely' set up last week. Cattle got in and destroyed it. Now it is 'tightly' set up and cattle proof. In that week already had an impressive amount of deer on camera.
Hopeful!

Looks good, and good luck. .
When doing a three strand barb wire pen we have learned that T-post every 5 feet is the minimum to keep out our cows. We had a protein feeder in one pen and the cows pushed through the fence and emptied it. We added extra post so they were every about every 2-3 feet in their favorite area to push through. They still pushed the post over pretty good, but it kept them out. Once they get the taste of protein they are aggressive.

So if you notice, the feeder is a little low. The legs are 3 parts each leg. So the pool ladder was to fill the feeder. After the cattle got in and destroyed everything, I ended up missing one piece of one leg somehow. Seriously, gone. The barrell was up against the pop up. Corn everywhere, it was completely full. Time ripped out burried in mud. Battery one other side of the fence. Let pieces all throughout. It was crazy. Door to timer box trampled, I had to bend it out with pliers and a hammer.

Anyway, point is I am missing 1 piece of a leg - so I made the other 2 match and now I dont need a ladder to fill the feeder!
