Deer Fencing

Fencing for deer in Cheshire and surrounding counties

Suddenstrike has supplied and installed various specifications of fencing to retain different species of deer including Red Deer Fencing, Fallow Deer, Roe Deer, Sika Deer, Muntjac and Chinese Water Deer. Fence types include creosoted timber deer fences, treated timber deer fences and metal estate style fences.

Deer fencing, when properly planned for, constructed and maintained, is an effective method of controlling deer and allowing different land uses to coexist in close proximity. It also helps to protect public safety.

Suddenstrike uses only the highest quality materials available to provide you with a professionally installed quality fence, this is why Suddenstrike uses Tornado Wire and X™ fence® products.

Did you know… the latest figures estimate that there are more than two million deer in the UK and more than three hundred deer farms and estates.

There are six main deer species in the UK – red, roe, muntjac, fallow, sika and Chinese water deer. Each of these species requires different specifications of fence, all of which are available from Suddenstrike.
