Come-along or golden rods either one would do the trick. Come-along gives you a lot more flexibility than golden rods, though. I've often wondered if a person had 2 come-alongs and stapled a 2X4 to the end of the woven wire if he/she could stretch the wire evenly as opposed to having to do it at the top, bottom, and middle. Someday I might have the opportunity to try it and see what happens. :laugh:

Thanks every one, but my mom ended up stretching it with a T post and a 2X4 I was amazed at how tight it got. :) Still have a lot more to do though lol. The fence stretcher did a good job but there just wasn't enough room to use some type of machine, 4 wheeler, bob cat, ect to pull it with.

I am not to worried about Bucks destroying it. We have never had a problem with that, and we have had some horrible bucks. I refuse to have any hot wire any where on my property, to many chances for a young child to get hurt. :)
