You should try some deer fencing. Cheaper than chicken wire, plastic, and super tough. Slightly lighter as well, if you're using large amounts.

Sounds like a great idea - where would you buy something like that?  I'll have to look at how much wire fencing I've got left from other projects, and if it's not enough I'll get some of that.

Around here, I get it at a farm supply place.

Yeah, farm supply. I know tractor supply carries it around here. Also, I believe Menards (home improvement) carries it.
