How many people have hunted game that is fenced?

Yes but those are different circumstances just like if it were a disabled person.

I like that we have choices and diversity. As long as your way doesn't infringe upon my rights and enjoyment then go for it.

Very well said-I agree totally!

I certainly understand where you're coming from, but aren't the circumstances different for each individual? For example, do you look down upon and shake your head because someone plays recreational softball instead of competative baseball? Or should every golfer play from the championship tees instead of the easier ones? No one shakes their head about someone participating in other sports at a lower level so why is hunting any different?

I want a tough hunt because it is more rewarding, but what about the guy that is not up to it? Is the message toughen up or don't participate? The guy or gal that participates in the high-fenced hunt is most likely to stand by your side when the anti-hunting faction tries to stop you from hunting. They are apt to stand by your side when the politicians want to ban your guns so doesn't it make sense to welcome them and not push them away?

fenced hunting

I have done some high fence hunting, not for whitetails, but for exotics and Elk out west. The areas were at least 1,000 acres and most more than that though, so there was none of the "running an animal into a corner" type stuff going on. In my experiences, the outfitter has gone above and beyond to make the experience both time consuming and physically demanding, not just walking out of the lodge and shooting an animal standing 100yds away next to the fence. In one of the places I've been, I never even saw the fence other than when entering the property.

I've taken animals in both fair chase and fenced environments and the only time I prefer the fenced is when I'm sinking a lot of my time and hard-earned money into traveling out of state somewhere for a nice trophy animal-I know too many people that pay the same money for fair chase as I do for a fenced hunt and come back empty handed-that's not for me, but again just my opinion.

Why not stab it while it's still in the cage ? neener!

Or, why not read my original post a little more carefully? Maybe if you had, you would have been able to determine that stabbing anything while it's still in a "cage" wouldn't have been possible. But that was a nice try at getting the truth about my experiences twisted into some BS stereotype.

If you don't agree with or don't like the idea of hunting behind a high fence, there's a simple answer for you-DON'T DO IT! That doesn't mean that others shouldn't have the right to. Some may not agree with the hunting of baited black bears up there where you're from in New Brunswick, but those who don't see it as "unfair" still have the opportunity to go and participate-I know because I hunted up there in 2005 and had a great time.

K guys calm down. I agree but dont you also agree that someone willing and able to hunt the forests should maybe save some money and try to hunt the old fashion way Im talking about all the rich people and people that have never hunted anywhere but behind a fence and pay for the kids to grow up learning the same thing pay to get your meat screw that I pay nothing besides what I need to get me there and have a good hunt. I believe too many people in the citys are teaching thier kids stuff they shouldnt learn anyway do you agree?

atomikall, I agree with you that there are most certainly people with money that are teaching their kids the wrong ideas about many things, hunting being one of them.

I still enjoy hunting locally here in GA under "fair chase" conditions quite often and will continue to do so, however I also enjoy (again, when I'm dropping a lot of money and heading out of state on a hunt for a specific animal) hunting at a high fenced place where I'm at least guaranteed the opportunity to take a nice animal. No caged animal, no 10 acre fenced in fields, or any of the other things that our friend from up there in New Brunswick would have people believe.
