Chicken wire isn't much of a raccoon deterrent, They are pretty tough and pretty persistent.

Maybe if the chicken wire was electrified.

To stop the deer from eating young bushes I would hang Irish Spring soap from them. It worked, I don't know if it will work on raccoons. I have the same issue with the raccoons but last year they destroyed my corn crop. This is my first year with hops, well if they come up, it has been three weeks and nothing has come out of the ground yet. I'm thinking about electrifying the fence around the garden this year.

All you need is one rocking chair, a case or two of homebrew and a shotgun of some sorts with a flash light taped to the barrel.
