Need a fence that would deter human trespassers but allow wildlife to come and go (deer, rabbits, squirrels, bees, wasps, spiders, cougars, bears, [depending on region of property] etc.)
Planning on getting my own property to start my very own homestead. I'd like it to be close to nature but not completely isolated. I want to take away as little habitat from the native wildlife of the area ; and so the issue I'm facing now is the fencing and security of my property.
I love observing [and sometimes even doodling] wildlife so I thought I could make a fence where they can come and go as they please (I will not be feeding them or interacting with them).
However I've had quite the amount of encounters where the neighboring people aren't too friendly and constantly want to ruin and/or steal what little I have from me. I don't know where this new property will be but I'm tired of people trying to take my things that I've worked so hard for; so I just want to prevent what I've been going through all these years, all the while enjoying the view of nature at it's best from the safety of home.
The "No Trespassing" Signs have not been working. I was thinking of getting a dog, but I wouldn't want them to attack the wildlife unless they need to (animals with rabies still possible?) and I don't know how I'd keep them from running away. Perhaps I could train them to stay close and alert me of other humans.
If you have any ideas, questions, or comments please reply to this thread. :3
