So I hung it over a barb wire fence.
Yep, got a new nickname, Fence! Came in on downwind and had some behind me in the pattern and one to my left coming in on final. I stayed somewhat crosswind going for the bullseye to work on an accuracy jump. When I got down to treetop level the destination point shifted from at the target to past it. I overflew the target and slid the landing to close to the fence. The wind took the canopy over ontop of the fence. I will find out the full extent of the damage next weekend maybe.

I've seen it done a bunch with base canopies. As long as you are very careful taking the canopy out of the barb wire, you should be able to get away without much damage. Obviously if you just start yanking on it, it will probably be in bad shape.
