We used to bring a truck to the corn patch and sleep in the back with the dog.  Dog kept the critters away. Worked pretty well, but a bit uncomfortable.

>Well, I have a question.   How are folks keeping raccoons out of their sweet corn, particularly fencewise?  I read an article that recommended two wires at 6 and 12" from the ground.   Are two necessary?  I have late planted corn that is about two weeks away from being ready.  Anyone use dog hair on the ground with success?
