So here is the deal, we have been dealing with bears for a VERY long time. We have learned that the welding wire dog kennels, including the top works well. But we want to increase our flock and are looking for any other successful ideas. I have heard some people have good luck with the hot wire netting? Any opinions? Just plain hot wire/rope doesn't seem to faze the bears. And with the prices increasing on metal, adding more "kennels" doesn't seem to be a good alternative anymore. Anyone with bear experience????
