florida bear problem
Since bears in Fla. are protected, and it seems they know it, we have at least six bears, pics taken on trail cams, being pigs at our feeders. We had to suspend them between trees to keep the bears from ripping motors and such from the bottom of the feeders. This is getting expensive, corn and repairs, so we are trying to find a way to stop the bears. I have seen bee keepers surround their hives with some kind of electric fence, powered by car batteries I think, and am wondering if we try this will it also keep deer out or will they jump the wire and feed. This area doesn't have many deer and we are trying to establish a safe zone to get some to stay in the area. Hunting allowed outside the zone roughly two 15 acre mostly wooded sand pines. Any suggestions that we may try would be appreciated.
I was always taught to respect my elders, but its getting harder to find one ...
