Well after reading this through and through I noticed the words "fair chase" and "high fence" in the same sentance. Living in colorado where there are endless tracks of public land to hunt, I could not imagine it being a fair chase no mater how big the area is fenced in. Most elk are migratory animals and should be free to roam as they should be. Please don't act like this is a fair chase because it is by far not.
I'm honestly tired of seeing all the tv shows saying that the animals are considered fair chase and are killed on high fence ranches or even food plots and feeders on private land hunts.
It's one thing to plant food plots and put feeders on your daddy's farm and hunt them, weather it be a "high fence" or not. It's also another to hike to 11000 feet in the middle of september in public lands to get a glipse at a free roaming animal. I'm not disagreing or sayin hunting food plots is wrong or hunting high fence areas are wrong, but please do not confuse these hunts with a "fair chase" hunts.
