New Fence - Post Installation

I got to take the week off from AOL between Christmas and New Years, so what better way to relax than by building a fence. Our property sits open along Sagle Road, and we get quite a few people trespassing on our property (hunting and fishing). And yes there are signs posted, but some people just suck. Not that a fence would keep everyone out, but hopefully it will reinforce the point that our place is not a free-for-all.

Have a look before I got started (you can see some orange marks where the posts will go).
Another look.

I had several 10' posts left over from the deer fence installation so I figured I may as well put them to use. I cut them in half with the chain saw, and dug all the holes with the auger on the tractor. After all the holes were dug, it was just a matter of getting the holes adjusted to the proper depth so each post would be 42" high. Drop in the post, backfill a little dirt, level the post and finish filling in the dirt.

Holes dug, some posts installed.
Left side posts done.
