I'm installing a chain-link fence. As our winters are cold, fence post tend to get pushed out of the ground.

I've seen fence posts anchored deep with concrete pushed a foot out of the ground.
Would it be better to simply hammer the post into the ground, so that I can bang 'em back into place every spring?
Our average temperature in January is -20 C / -4 F. In the pre-spring we often get a few thaw-freeze-thaw-freezes.
