    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] from San Diego High desert.

    Speaking as one who has suffered cascade faliure on the predator front. I love what you have done.

    Whew!!
    Ain't nothin' gettin' in there!

    Is that outer gate, the first one you walked thru, 'hot'?

    You could put a concrete block under the end of that ramp to make it less steep and easier for them to walk on.

    Yeah might try that. They all came down it today going up a different story. Yes first gate is outer fence with metal underground to prevent digunder. Im actually adding 2 more electric fence wires to outside perimeter.
