I want to enclose a small garden to keep coons out, about 15' x 15'


How does this look?

Anything less than 365 kV is no fun to watch.

We had one when I was a kid around our goats. We used to dare each other to touch it all the time or push eah other into it.

Kept us at bay pretty well.

That will do it. Make sure you consider ALL of the ways they will try to get into your garden. You'll need to keep grass from coming into contact with the hot wires. Get a very good ground rod.

When we were kids, my cousin Donnie pissed one one once.... It literally knocked his dick in the dirt (he fell face down in the pasture and continued to piss all over himself). Yeah, I laughed so hard I damn near passed out.

It'd probably be cheaper to just shoot the coon. Or trap and and release it far far away. Or trap it and toss it in a water filled trashcan. Your call.

I did it by accident. I thought a freaking rattlesnake bit my junk.

A little under powered. You should be seeing about 10k volts at almost no amperage. Fi-shock makes one that sells for about the same amount of money. It's not rated at 2 miles, but having experience with Zareba, they are a much better unit. You really don't need much for that size area. You could get away with 3 or 4 strands if there is an existing fence to clip insulators on to.

Looks good. Remember, grass and plants can short it out. First wire should be 4" off the ground. Alternate hot/ground for best effect if you have dry ground. Get a good ground. Metal fence posts aren't good grounds unless they are in damp ground.

3000v is the minimum for predator and pest control.
Get a weedeater - you'll need to keep the grass from touching the bottom wire
