west central Iowa
My Dad said when he was young they pulled hog wire with an F20 and dug it down. A friend of mine was on a fence crew in the 70s and they pulled hog wire tight enough that 4-5 of them would have to stand on the wire to pull it down in the low spots. One day the rest of the crew conspired against him and jumped off at the same time. He said it launched him pretty good.
