Fences

I recently purchased a farm that I intend to establish about 40 acres of rotational paddocks along with some new perimeter fencing.  Part of the area is subject to infrequent flooding and there are a lot of deer in the area as well (at least for the time being:smileyhappy:).  

 

I have traditionally built 5 barb fencning on all of our farms.  However, i'm wondering if high tensile fencing would be a better choice.  I like the idea of inline tensioners that can be adjusted as the fence stretches.  My questions are:

 

1.  How does cost of high tensile fence compare to 5 barb fencing?

 

2.  Would one or the other be any better during high water events?

 

3.  Would deer be less of a problem with either one or the other/

 

Thanks in advance.
