Here is a previous similar question with answer FYI - you can find more about fencing issues and costs in the Home > Fencing link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

Of course, accessibility and need to cut trees/brush on alignment, and how hard the ground is to dig post holes matters a LOT. For instance, in areas where ground is too steep for a mobile drill rig or bobcat with jackhammer attachment can run an adiitional $100-200 per fence post hole for the contractor to rent an air compressor or large generator and haul around a hand-held jackhammer to drill the required 24-30 inch deep hole. Course, when replacing an existing fence, assuming the existing post spacing is proper, a LOT easier to dig the post hole in the existing hole or post/concrete than in hard bedrock. In many cases, in soil, the existing posts can just be jacked out of the ground in a few minutes per post and a new one put in at the exact same location.
