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?
