Electric Fence


Hemlock

Recommended Posts

It's come to the point where my lab runs and is going to get hurt...and she finds dead stuff in the bush and comes home stinky.

Who recommends a good electric fence style, or brand? I have heard of the bury the wire style, as well as the wireless version. Anyone? I'm sorry if it's been beat to death, if someone could post the link of a thread that would work too.

Thumbs up for the wireless fence for us and we have a very active beagle that respects the boundaries. It only took a few shocks and he knows where he can and can't go. The nice thing about the system we have is that it does give him warning beeps beforehand so he doesnt have to get shocked. It covers up to 1/2 an acre which is plenty for room to run for him. You just plug the receiver in somewhere in the middle of your house and it broadcasts out in a circle. Plus, you can adjust the range and even take it camping or on the road on trips. So its portable. Not for everyone but it works for our situation. Just type in PetSafe wireless fence on google. Fleet Farm often runs a deal where you get a $25 gift card if you buy the system there.

Thank you for the response. My property is about a half acre, but runs quite rectangular. So....that circle covers part of our property and part of both of my neighbors...I can't imagine that circle range is adjustable to more oval shape? I will check it out.

No. It pretty much is a circle. So it sounds like buying the fence in ground is probably a better option in your case, unless you want to have a fairly small range for her to run. Unless your neighbor is cool with her on their property minus any landmines.

Landmines are part of the problem....sandy soil, so probably in ground is the way to go. Will is still work in 3' of snow? (I'm in Canada/not much different than MN)

Hemlock I just ran across a new type of wireless fence on the internet the other day. It's called WiFi wireless fence. It covers up to 2 1/2 acres. I really don't know much more about it but it looked interesting. Google Monell Pets Thats who I bought my inground fence from and was very happy with there service. The thing that would be nice with a unit like this is if you went somewhere you could maybe bring it with. Good luck Bobcat

The WiFi ones still cover a circle pattern but cover 2 1/2 acres...$329 for the lower cost version.

Seems pretty decent if it works like they say.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
