We are already going to rent an auger.
See, when we put up the pole barn we hired a guy with a hydraulic auger to come do the holes. 8 holes total took 4.5 hours and the deepest one was 32 inches....we literally don't have that much soil before hitting continuous very hard bed rock.
ETA, after about 15inches you hit hard pan and boulders, then at about 24 inches it is bed rock. :( That's why a lot of fences have rock cradles and underground jack legs around here.
