Last night was the second night that the 'coons had a feast of my early corn. Now half that patch is gone. I have a lot of later corn coming on and want to protect it. So yesterday I strung an electric fence, two strands (one 4" off the ground and the other 6" above it), and hooked it up to the cow pasture electric fence. The current is good, but the 'coons still went at it last night. So this morning I strung another wire about 6" over the second one, and now have three strands. That's 5 hours labour so far. Do you think it will work tonight? Any bets? Ideas? Is it high enough now? Do 'coons jump? Are they imune to electric shocks? Or smart enough to wait and jump through between two pulses?
