3. Sturdy and flexible wire and nails.
4. Shovels, buckets, and wheelbarrows.
5. Hammer – Used to drive supports into the ground.
6. Wire cutters for cutting wire and fencing (a good trimmer will also work).

The Proper Way to Install A Game Fencing
1. Clearing the Site
Before installing a game fence, you will need to clear a wide area along the intended fence line. Be sure to clear away rocks, trees, and other debris that may interfere with the fence. In addition, the cleared area should be wide enough to allow access once the fence is complete.
2. Digging Post Holes
When digging the post holes, you can dig a little deeper, usually, 3 feet is sufficient. Also, mix gravel and water with dirt and fill in around each post. Then, tamp the soil around each post with a metal rod. This way the posts will be held very firmly in place.
3. Setting Up the Pillars
Next, it comes to the step of setting the pillars. Generally speaking, Wanzhi Steel‘s recommendation is to install a pillar every 3 meters. One-third of the height of the pillar should be underground so that it can resist the pulling and pushing of animals.
4. Placing the Fence
First, put the fence up, starting at the first corner, and nail it securely to the posts with fence nails. Then, place a nail on each strand or every other strand of the fence line. Next, use a fence stretcher to tighten the fence along the entire section. Finally, use wire and nails to attach the fence securely to the posts.
If you are installing a fence for a large animal, such as a feral pig. Our recommendation is to add barbed wire to the ground to prevent feral pigs from passing under the net. The installation should be done in such a way that the wire is straight and tight so that it can withstand potential attacks from those powerful animals.
