High fence???

Boy I have to say I'm proud of all you guy's. On most hunting sites this would have turned real ugly.

I am neither pro or con on high fence hunting but then I've never done it either. I do think that animal's taken like that that do make record book status should be clearly shown nthey are high fence animals. As for them being farm animals, I think that's probably true and I don't have a problem with anyone that wants to go out and kill his owm cow or hog. I just wouldn't want to confuse it with hunting. Lots of people are willing to pay for that type of shooting. I think that's their business.

As for the cost of meds and blood test's, that needs to be figured into your cost's and recovered that way. But you also might find someone that would bewilling to hunt your place and nake some kind of deal with them. Simply going out and darting animals cost's nothing but time, it's the meds and test's that you need to recover. I'd bet you could find some high school kids that would come out and do it for free just to do it.

I do have one question Brad. With these hunts be guarenteed kills?

Unless I am seriously mistaken (happened once in my life ) B&C and P&Y will not accept high fence animals. I believe only SCI will.

I was waiting to cap off my comments until some more input had come in but now is as good of time as any.

If I understood correctly the original question asked by brad was "is hunting a high fenced animal the same as hunting an wild animal that chooses to make a home on your farm and eat your crops?' My answer is no it is not. To me there is a clear distinction between a high fenced hunt and a hunt on your private property. I'm not sure if he really asked our input on what we thought about high fenced hunts in general.

But Don since you weighed in on the subject I will say I can't think of why a high fenced operation should be outlawed.....it's certainly not for me.....but it really is no different than raising cattle or hogs for meat. I have raised a cow before for the purpose of filling the freezer. I think where the "heated" words really come into play is when a high fenced operation is advertised and called a "hunt".

What would be a good name for a high fence hunt/?????

I have started a deer farm. I sale 3 hunts on my farm now no fence wild per year. Have done this for the last 3 years every one has got nice deer every year. I have not seen a Record book deer in this area in 25 years. That's why I was asking about the high fence hunting. I want to see a 180 BC or bigger before I die. The way We hunt here in KY I dont see a different in the two. My farm is so thick with woods Ceders and Briars. You cant see over 30 feet. If my 250 acre farm was fenced off for High fence hunting. I would put my money on the deer if you started chasing them around on the farm.$$$$

Brad I can certainly see your rationalization process but it's still not the same any way you look at it. By your own words you want to see a 180 B&C animal and adding a fence in your mind will do that. Obviously the fence changes something. And again a high fence deer is not eligible for B&C.
