Hunting in a fenced in area

   If given the opportunity would you hunt in one of those fenced in refugees. The only way I would is if it was free and for the meat. I guess I would shoot one of those monster bucks but it wouldn't be anything I would brag about. Once again it would have to be free.

Agreed it would have to be

Agreed it would have to be free.  But it would be cool to see all of the big bucks.

I just can't see the point.

I just can't see the point. Even for meat I would feel pretty tacky about it. I don't have enough time between my fair chase hunts to fit one of those in.

Hunting in a fenced in area

I doubt it, don't know much about it, but hear some are so big you almost don't know you are on one? I honestly never really thought about it, because I don't know where any exist.

You know, I don't even really

You know, I don't even really think I could do it for free.  Maybe if I was starving and needed the meat, but not just to shoot one.

Well, the first thing is that

Well, the first thing is that you would never have to worry about doing it for free since any person that owns a high fence area is in it for the money and the money only.  I don't know what kind of fun it would be to go some place and hunt by the inch.  I believe that there was a property owner or an outfitter for one on here a couple of weeks ago telling us about a cull opperation that they had going on and if I remember right it was around $2500.00 for a management buck.  Now here is a deer that they want out of the heard and they want to charge that kind of money for you to shoot it.

I would never shoot an animal

I would never shoot an animal in one of these enclosures. It isn't hunting, it's killing so the induvidual can bragg to his/her friends about a big animal he/she shot. That's all.

NO WAY!!! Where is the real

NO WAY!!! Where is the real trophy in that? I think the fenced in animals are just handed to you pretty much. If I shot a huge B&C or P&Y bull elk or buck in the fenced area it would not mean as much as me SnSn it in the fair pusuit wilderness, even if it was just a little fork horn!!!
