Growing is easy enough, these guys im sure are lazy fucks. Having to saw through a board will probably enough of a deterant to keep your shit safe. At least you'd hope to think so. If you put that chicken wire up right, they'll have a fucked of a time tryin to saw through that wood if they actually do go that far.
"Any fool knows a dog needs a home, a shelter from pigs on the
picked up about $125 worth of lumber today and go 3 sides done. the only side not complete is the one i can watch from my seat here at the kitchen table.
once it's all complete, the only way in will be through the top, which i hope to god happens, honestly. if they go in through the top, motion sensor goes off and they have no easy way back out and will be face to face with a man wielding an axe.
Eventually they may get smart and arrive with backpacks and bud clippers a week or so early,
perimiter alarm would be cool unless you were gone and the cops arrived. shitty
it takes a long time to clip branches and fill up backpacks. even if they were out there for 20 minutes they could only get a small portion of it. but that won't happen.
the slats i put up today, which are 7'' apart, don't allow for entry unless they saw through them. it will be tough to saw through them because i will have chicken wire lining the whole damn thing.
and just for good measure, i'll probably put in the electric fence before harvest, it's only about $100 or so and easy to install.
so, if they can get past the 6' fences, slats, chicken wire, and electric fence, they still have to beat the motion sensors and an angry man with an axe.
i'm so done fucking around.
That really really sucks. Is calling the police completely out of the question? I know for me after a home invasion the presence of the police made a big difference in how the local kids viewed my property. Congrats on putting up more defenses but I might recommend razor wire or a camera over an electric fence - hell even fake cameras can make a big difference. Most electric fences made for keeping livestock in are pretty weak and only pulse. I've never seen a livestock fence that I couldn't grab and hold onto with only mild irritation.
I wish you the best of luck.
a 10 mile fence energizer attached to a quarter mile of wire should be good, but my only goal is to provide deterrent after deterrent after deterrent.
was thinking of doing a fake camera with a little led light that blinks at the apex of the GH where they can't reach. would be easy enough. i'll probably end up adding that in one of these days.
every little deterrent is good in my book.
