I don't have problem with the hoppers. Yeah, can never find 8' above the ground T posts. 7' are more like 6.5 when all done. Baby bunnies early in season are main issue here for the garden, since they can get through the 2" fence easily. I have occasional woodchucks but those are limited to structures they burrow under. Easy enough to catch 'chucks with regular setting of body traps.I dont have much problem with diggers.
