Jay and All:

The question was, "why bait an electric fence?"

The reasons:  it lets the deer know it's there, and therefore to avoid
it.  The best baiting technique seems to be putting peanut butter on a
metal spoon.  They come to lick off the peanut butter and - voila!  A
terribly tingly tongue.

Sort of like kissing in reverse, I suppose!
