What Is The Ideal Height For A Deer Fence?

Posted by DeerBusters on

The typical whitetail deer is known to jump deer fence heights up to 8’ tall. There have been situations where the deer have been recorded jumping even higher, in one case a deer jumped a 15’ deer fence height. For maximum deer protection we recommend at least a 7.5’ high deer fence height. Deer can jump an average of 8’ high, but will not risk the jump if they are uncertain. Would you voluntarily jump off a 2 story building, especially if you were unsure of the landing? For this same exact reason, nature makes deer reluctant to jump over a 7.5’ deer fence height. They eyesight of a deer is also a huge factor when it comes to our deer fencing. They have real trouble seeing the deer fence top. Deer see best in the yellow, deep blue and certain ultraviolet portions of the spectrum, and both polypropylene deer fencing and pvc-coated steel hexagrid deer fencing reflect these wavelengths poorly. We have both 7.5’ and 8’ deer fencing heights available to ensure the best solution for your deer problem.
