Found out today the man next to my farm,(Peyton Hillis, of the Kanasas City Cheifs) is putting a game fence between our properties. Thing about it its open on both ends. Have never sit foot on his land but makes me feel like he thinks I have been. Thinking about intruducing myself.

It sure wouldn't hurt to introduce yourself. Once you do that, you are no longer the nameless/faceless neighbor who may be a threat but you become a real person with a face who is showing good will. A few minutes of talking can do wonders.

First thought was" Wow I would like to be able to own afarm 2 miles on one side"
Shucks I would just be glad to be able to afford a fence that tall and that long.

It may not hurt you at all, I have 2 different tracts for sale in KY for clients that join and wrap around a corner of a high fence.
Its been in place for about 15 years that I know of and its over 7,000 ft long on there side, the deer travel around that cover well.
And during late season bucks cruise that fence scent checking does.

Find some low areas where that fence crosses ditches and creeks. THESE WILL DEFINITELY be crossing areas between the properties. And believe me it won't take much space for even a large buck to go under the fence.

for line clearing and high fence

I don't understand the point of a high fence open at both ends. On the surface it sounds like he has the long sides up and possibly by law can't fence in free ranging deer and has to make several attempts to run them out of the enclosure before he can fence in the ends. Maybe you're going to have a deer farm or trophy high fence area next door?????

Me either, but this is the second instance of it I have heard of. The other was a farmer/outfitter in North Dakota that was running a trophy management operation with supplemental feeding etc, but his neighbors on one side were all brown and down family style hunting if you will. He told us he put a fence on that side of his property for a mile long to deter deer from traveling to his neighbors property without a lot of effort. He claimed it made a considerable difference in his young buck surviving to maturity. Now whether that is true or nor, I cannot say. Just passing this along exactly as it was told to me.

Well, if you look at how long a fence would have to be to go around 1,500 acres plus the cost of clearing that much ground I don't think these two prices are that different. Consider this: 1,500 acres is 2.34 square miles so the perimeter of that property would require 9.5 miles of fence. Take the $15,000/mile cost and multiply that times 9.5 and you've got $142,500 for just the fence. And that assumes the 1,500 acre property is square which it almost for sure isn't and as the shape deviates from a square the fence is going to get even longer. If the 1,500 acres required bulldozer work to clear 9.5 miles, that is going to cost a lot of money too. So this one mile of straight line fence may be consistent with the $250,000 fence after all.

I had no idea whatsoever about the costs is why I asked in the first place. Are these chain link fences with the V shaped barbed wire holders on top of the posts? I would assume that's what we are talking about here?

OOOps, I see that it was 2 miles for $15,000. That does make it a lot cheaper than the 1,500 acre property fence. Oh well. \:\)

I figure the reason it is only going to be partially fenced is because there is a neighbor with a shooting house and long shooting lane down the boundary on one side while the opposite side borders a federal park with no hunting. Assuming this is the correct farm in question. And as far as clearing costs for the fence, it would be minimal since there is a road around or very near much of the boundary.

Most high fence are not chain link, not much more the cattle standard woven wire fence, some time they even use it and make 2 runs, and when a dozier is cleans straight lines usually cost is much lower. You many times factor that timber is cut so they is an open space to drive a check fencing which can give return back. You also have to figure that a tract that large which this on e did have road frontage, sometimes alot which cuts down on clearing. Either way its a costly thing to do and many times
they have there own equipment as in this case. The real kicker is this owner was NOT a deer hunter, but a quail hunter who got tried of seeing 4wheeler, truck tracts, gut piles, etc were trespassers were showing up on his land

That sounds WAY low. High-fencing usually costs between $4-7 per running foot. That's $21,000-37,000 per mile.

Okay, Hillis is from Arkansas, playing for Chiefs, 3 mil a year. He can afford whatever the price tag says. I wonder if he will let me hunt on it?
