High Game Fencing Material
Provides greater strength and performance than hinge-joint mesh.
Helps ensure greater security from unwanted animals while maintaining an affordable fence solution. The height and width of the wire spacing provide for different applications. Ensuring that animals can’t get so much as stick afoot through the fence can be critical for wildlife and livestock safety.
Important for stretching the fence during installation to hold tension throughout its life. The crimps also provide some flex in the fence if an animal or other may run into it.
The steel mesh is designed to withstand stresses without losing shape or strength. The crimps in the horizontal wires absorb pressure – both during installation and from animals.
What is the best high game fencing material?
Quality game fences are built to withstand the test of time and the forces of nature, namely the weather and the animals themselves. Big game can exert hundreds of pounds of force against the fence, and repeated blows can destroy barbed wire and standard field fencing. Even small, weakened places give entry to predators.
We recommend high tensile wire mesh for our high game fencing. High tensile wire mesh with interlocking fixed knots has the highest strength rating and is the most durable ranch fencing material. The toughness and durability of high tensile woven wire are far superior to barbed wire or low tensile woven wire.
High-tensile fixed-knot wire mesh fencing comes in different styles, weights, and patterns. The standard for Tejas high game fences for deer is the 2096-6 with standard spacing. Another option referred to as “fawn wire” is the 2096-3, which offers tighter spacing. In rare circumstances, a 10’ fence is used with a 6” spacing, similar to the 8’ wire net fencing.

HIGH GAME FENCE: KEEPING WILDLIFE IN AND PREDATORS OUT
In the world of Texas deer ranching, no infrastructure is more important than the high game fence. And it can’t be just any high fence. Proper installation, high-quality durable materials, water gap solutions, and ground barriers are essential.
The high fence enables breeders and trophy hunting operations to control and protect their herds, improve range and nutrition management, and eliminate predators. Keeping out other native deer can be just as important as containing the cultivated herd for breeding purposes. Deer bred and managed within high game fences have the optimum conditions — and the necessary time — to grow to impressive sizes with magnificent and highly desirable antlers. High fences also facilitate selective harvesting for herd optimization.
In addition to securing the herd, high game fencing can also improve a property’s overall safety and security. High game fences can virtually eliminate trespassing, a significant deterrent to poachers, whether by unauthorized hunters or other unwanted guests.
How high is a high game fence?
Height, of course, is relative, but in the world of high game fences, the minimum is eight feet. Deer bound easily over five-foot field fencing, and even lumbering elk can jump low fences with nary a hitch. For some terrain, 10 feet provides the extra protection needed to keep a trophy herd in and most predators out.
Most antelope, sheep, bison, and other exotics can be safely contained within five-foot game fences. For more on low-fence exotics, please visit this article https://tejasranchfence.com/low-fence-exotics/.
What to do about water gaps, gate gaps, and ground gaps?
A game fence with gaps is really no fence at all. Running streams, seasonal creeks, sharp elevation changes, and low-lying areas along fence lines can be challenging to secure. To secure water gaps — a particularly bedeviling issue — Tejas Ranch & Game Fence invented the FloatMaster™ water gap system. With its revolutionary design, the FloatMaster™ floats during high water events, allowing runoff and debris to pass below the fence line. During dry weather, the FloatMaster™ lies flat on the ground to form a reliable barrier.
Standard ranch gates built for cattle pastures often have gaps between the gates and fence posts and between gates and round tubing. Latches on standard cattle gates are notorious for giving away in high winds or under pressure from animals. If a cow breaks a latch and ambles into another pasture, it’s generally not a big deal. But if trophy deer or exotics find a way through an unreliable gate, that animal is likely gone for good.
Ground gaps are an often-overlooked problem, but the base of the fence can be as important as the height when it comes to security. For these common ground gaps, we use a heavy-weight welded wildlife mesh to close the gaps. Another possible security measure, predator wire installed along the base of a fence, not only keeps out hogs and other digging animals but also helps keep deer from creating weak spots at the base through which they can escape. Moderate weight galvanized steel panels attached to the base of the fence can significantly reduce ground gaps and prevent predators and hogs from digging under a game fence.
