Do you take the entire electric fence down or just one side?

Thanks for your answer about when to take my electric fence down. In your video it looks like you only took down one side of your fence.
Should I do the same or take down all four sides? Once the realize that they will not get shocked will they just jump the fence or still go around to the open side?


I often open one side of the fence or create a fence gap. I make sure the fence remains hot so deer won’t get conditioned to jumping the fence.  

I create a gap in an area that’s favorable to my stand/blind. 

Enjoy creation,
