Fencing is the most effective approach to deter big-game movements. However, cost to install and maintain effective fences can be prohibitive. Further, fences across rough terrain can be impractical. Although simple designs can effectively deter deer and elk from some sites, more complex designs are necessary if the protected resource is highly desirable or if normal transitory patterns, such as migratory routes or paths to water, are disrupted. The task becomes more daunting if your desire is to construct an impregnable fence.
