Driveway Gates with Decorative Wildlife Themes

Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art
We love building artistic driveway gates which feature a wide variety of wildlife animals. All of our wildlife themed decorative driveway gates are plasma cut by hand from either steel or aluminum and can be made to custom fit any driveway size. Designs can be rearranged and semi-customized for your personalized driveway gate so if you want to incorporate parts of different gates you like into something entirely new then contact us and we can design it for you!
Three Deer Wildlife Scene Drive Gate
This ornamental wildlife entry gate is one of our favorite pieces built to date. At 18′ long, there is an additional 12′ structure on the end (not visible here) to turn it into a sliding gate. Features two whitetail bucks, a doe and two fawns in a Missouri woodland setting.

West Virginia Driveway Gates
14′ Dual Swing Deer & Turkey Gate Design
This front entry gate was made for a farm in West Virginia. They installed it themselves and did a fantastic job. One of the first sets of powder coated gates after building the powder coat oven.
Illinois Wildlife Driveway Gates
Corten Steel Deer Gate
This 20′ dual swing deer gate was designed to rust to a fine purple patina. Mounted to local stone columns, it is made from Corten weathering steel and will develop a beautiful rust patina over time until eventually the rust achieves its final look; a slightly purple-hued rustic finish that seals itself off from further rusting.
We installed these dual swing gates at a private hunting reserve in Cuba, Illinois.
For openers to install Apollo model 3500/3600 driveway gate openers along with an automatic exit wand and a wireless intercom/keypad system. The weather was uncooperative with lots of rain, high wind, and then snow but we survived and this picture was taken and sent to us the next spring by Jeff Martin, landscape architect for this project which now features native prairie grass and wildflowers along each side of the driveway.
Louisiana Wildlife Themed Estate Gates
19′ dual swing entrance gates we built for Louisiana estate entryway. Featuring whitetail deer, hog, ducks, & trees along with custom lettering. Built from rugged 1/8″ thick steel. Shown cooling down here after we pulled them out of the powder coat oven.
Bear & Deer Driveway Gates
The bear depicted on these plasma cut ranch gates happens to be “Gentle Ben” of TV fame in the 1960’s…now memorialized in steel making up the driveway gate at Bear Paw Ranch in St. James, Missouri where Gentle Ben was born and raised. The gate was custom designed and fabricated for the gentleman who now owns the ranch. Our client’s son’s wedding was coming up soon and the project was time critical. We were able to get the gate delivered to him to be installed with a couple days to spare before the wedding. A whitetail deer is featured on the other half of the gate. A truly one-of-a-kind design with all design rights privately held by gate owner.
Bear Themed Iron Gates
This 16′ bear-themed entry gate was built for a fun couple who spend their time between Florida and their family farm, the Mountain View Estate, in the beautiful Adirondacks in upstate New York. We had the gates powder coated with zinc rich primer for corrosion control with a flat bronze topcoat. We delivered the gates from Columbus, Ohio to New York and installed them there along with an Estate Swing 1000D automatic opener package.
Decorative Bear Themed Gate
16′ Single Swing
This steel gate was plasma cut from 1/8″ sheet and mounted to a stone column. We built an F shaped bracket from square tubing which was embedded inside the column. The hinges mount to the tubing that protrudes from the wall about 4′ apart. The gate weighs approximately 450 lbs.

Our Ornamental Gates are Crafted by Hand
All our work is hand cut with a Hypertherm plasma cutter. If you have a theme in mind we can design a gate that will be meet or exceed all your expectations. If you are able to provide us with a picture of your entrance then we can actually show you what the gate will look like before the first cut is ever made.
You can also check out our ornamental tree gates here & horse gates here. If you are interested in having us create a custom design for you or have any other questions then feel free to contact us below.
