Great stuff, thanks all!
I've got lots of reading to do and really appreciate the guidance.
If you're near a coast and a fishing fleet, discarded trawling nets can be hung in the trees and staked to the ground. You can make the height whatever you want ... 20', 30'.

Deer won't jump it. You can buy miles of that stuff for not much.
Goats will hang themselves in that.

Good point! Thanks, @Alice In TX/MO !
You don't have to use the same fencing for deer and goats. Nets can be used to extend the height of the goat fence.

Hedge was good, too. I think I can still get some hedge apples if you want to try to grow some of them. Just plant them in a line where you want a fence. Takes a few years, but they last darned near forever.

Good firewood, too.
In the fifty year test a college conducted creosoted posts had started to rot. The only post that was still good was hedge (osage orange).

Why were the posts about using fish net to block deer moved?
