That was my thinking as well.

I'm not in the habit of cutting through fences, but I'd guess that it would 
take less time to get through chain link, but you're going to need a bigger 
cutters... and if somebody wants to get in that badly, they'll cut through 
either one. 

But I can say that climbing 8' chain link with barbed wire at the top isn't 
that hard...

  Depending on the gauge, hog wire can be about the same difficulty to cut as 
chain link. Not sure which one would be more or less difficult to get through, 
but when you cut a row of chainnlink, the rest folds up like an accordion.

  I like concertina across the top, but the stuff you described works too. 
Might be easier to work with.

  Motion activated alarms can be effective.

    I need to build a fence.  Keep people out of my equipment yard.  Lost a few 
things over the years, mostly radiators, wiring batts etc.  Copper stuff.

    So, what kind of fence.  How tall.  I am thinking 10’/8’ T post with 
hog/goat welded wire.

    Perhaps with those barbed wire brackets (if I can get them to fit) with 
three strands of barbed wire angling outward.

    Could do shorter.
    Could do chain link.
    Could do three strands of straight barbed wire at the top of 6’.  

    Not sure I need to do the 2 3/8 pipe posts cemented in the ground except 
for the corners.  

    If they will cut hog wire they will cut chain link I think.  

    Chain link fence company quoted $25/foot.  

    Cops say motion activated lights are the best deterrent.  Followed by 
working or not cameras.  
    And I am doing/will do both of these.  

    Opinions please.
