Default I NEED INFO ON DEER SANTUARY'S

I HAVE SEEN DEER MANAGEMENT AREAS ON TV, WERE A FENCE SUROUNDS THE PROPERTY SO THE DEER WILL EAT THE PROER SUPPLEMENTS THAT ARE PLANTED FOR THEM.

SOME QUESTIONS I HAVE ARE
1. HOW TALL OF A FENCE?
2. HOW MANY ACRES SHOULD BE NEEDED?
3. WHAT SHOULD DEER POPULATION BE?
4. ARE THERE ANY REGULATIONS OR LAWS THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESS?


THANKS ICEMAN

1. 8 foot fence with 2 strands of high tensile. One placed at 9' and the other at 10' making a total of a 10' high fence

2. As much as feasibly possible. I hope that you aren't planning on hunting penned deer, but if you are make it as big as you can so that the deer actually have a chance to elude you. I would keep it to AT LEAST one acre per deer. If you can, make it even 3-4 acres per deer. This will prevent disease and keep the pen from mudding up.

3. Again, no more than 1 deer to every acre or acre and a half of pen maximum.

4. Contact your local game commission or department of agriculture, although I believe the department of ag is taking over deer propogation in all states from the game commssions. There are laws and regulations that you will need to follow.

What about breathing? Is that illegal there too? Wait...what do you mean by transportation and anything similar?
