Jumbo Release Pen Netting.

Has anyone any experience of using this stuff ? Its bit late for me to ask, because I've just sent off for a roll.

I'll be backing it up with electric wire.

Looks similar to the 50mtr roll of electric chicken fencing I bought a couple of months ago.

Interested to hear what it's like John.

The local shoot uses it for their release pens and I'm going to give it a go for chickens. If I can put it up correctly, its supposed to be longer lived than wire chicken netting. Its definitely cheaper.

Well I'm really interested now mate, looking forward to seeing how it works for you.

I just use Harris fencing up the shoot for our pens.

What's Harris fencing like ?  

I've priced up eight foot round fence posts at 3.44 plus vat. I'm not looking forward to getting those put in properly.

I never get posts in straight, my fences all are slightly! Off

You and me both.

I've sent for some more Fenn traps and some plastic break back rat traps from this company. I intend knocking up some new tunnel traps and putting them and the Fenns around the perimeter of the new enclosure.

Blimey that was quick, I only placed the order yesterday and its just been delivered.

This is the fencing we use up the shoot

We don't use the footing just cable tie it together then there's no gap at the base, you can knock a real big pen together in about an hour and there cheap as chips second hand

The only problem is they look a bit industrial at home, but who cares in the woods.
