I think he's done it a time or two.

Anybody can do it in feet of topsoil. Come on out and try that in the Hill Country. bolt

I bet our place would turn those posts into toothpicks or splinters.

Our flint rocks would never let him get past the 1" mark. I can do the wire spooler since I built a 5 spool but post holes take time, shear pins, and a lot of manual labor in our country.

That's how you build a fence if your property is east of I-35, where there is powder puff soil that's 6-8 feet deep. West of 35, that rig wouldn't last more that about 3 post "attempts!"

Alberta prairies. Personally that 4 wire fence looks like a disaster waiting to happen

Amen to that. It ought to be called the rock country not the Hill country.

Those posts look like big old pencils. Me and the girls used one of these to build feed pens when I was feeding deer. I would drill a hole for a T-post in about a minute out here in Val Verde county

I was thinking the same thing and also that the wood post were not being driven in very deep at all. I hate wood anyway and will NEVER build one with anything but drill stem. We cut our joints in 3 pieces and drive each one in the ground all the way so each post is in the ground over 5' deep....closer to 6' actually.

that fence he was building would be in horrible shape within 2 years where we are at.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

No pro at all but built enough of it as a kid/teen with my grandparents, doesnt look like a fence to be proud of other than he did it by himself to me.

When I was young in the 60's we used dynamite to dig the corner post holes.

That video has been around for quite some time.
Always thought that machine was a cool idea but the fence would not last or be very strong to hold back cattle.

As a teenager I worked for a fence co. in Oak Cliff, usually there was around 4" to 8" of top soil then you were into rock.
Got a good workout with the post hole diggers, do not remember have a rock buster bar.

One shot is all it should take.

nothing wrong with 4 wire, evidently he has experience doing it. neighbor had similar idea, using a front end loader, was a bit tricky, in black dirt works fine. back home in S.W. Ks that would have been a dream.

Pretty cool. I might still have my original shoulder if I had that.

Did you see the FB comments from the tree hugger saying he should have planted shrubs and created a "live" fence that was more ecologically friendly? roflmao

If you tried something like that around here you would not stay in business very long.
