Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

I have found that peeing on them grounds them out for a short time and will allow you to cross.

Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

i use the butt of my gun to push the wires down so i can step over it. the rubber butt pad and stock will act as insulation from the voltage.

Just a joke I take no responsibility if anyone does this !
I second that. Remember the weiner cookers with the 2 prongs that cooked the weinie in 30 seconds....

Thats you.

I'd turn it off or use a gate. Just common sense and no cooked weinie........

i was joking about the wuss part but the rubber gloves would let him handle the wire easily. a rubber door mat would work for protecting everything else.

this is what i deal with every day....



yall should see some of the stuff we end up doing just to keep the 's on and still do what we got to do.

Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

It does not take much to get over an electric fence, just a chunk of sagebrush is enough to push it down or just go fast, it'll only get you once. UNLESS it's being used around buffalo, that stuff will knock you out of your boots!!!!!!

Funny story: I lived in Old Mexico for 5 yrs or so. My foreman asked me how to keep his animals in his corral. I said "well in the US we use elec fences" HMMMMMM. He hooks up 110v to his fence with tire rubber insulators. All 4 of his horses were dead by the next morning.

Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

I have permission. The gate is a long way from where I need to access the pasture. I need different access locations in regards to the direction of the wind.
The fence is for Beefalo cattle. I use pro ears predator muffs. With old style (1 wire) electric fence, my muffs don't pick up the electricity sound of the fence until you are almost on top of it. With this 4 wire, chest high fence, you can here the fence start to snap 4 times the distance.
That stuff you are covering the line with in your great pic looks like what I need. I'll have to camo paint them tho!
