New world record elk??????


Allow me to put a different prospective on this issue.

#1 High Fence is used thru out the world. i.e. Texas,S Africa,Spain, Florida, Michigan, Saskatchewan etc...all over the world!
#2 For some animals and countries some animals would be extinct without high fence.
#3 It is a different method of harvesting than you normally use. As purist you probably still use a stone or stick. Let us stick together. These harvestor/hunters are not claiming these were free-range animals.
#4 Yes, Boone & C nor Pope & Y allow these no free ranging entries.
#5 Safari Club International allows them only as the catagory "estate, non-free-ranging" totally seperate from free-range animals hunted with out fence
#6 In fighting contempt should not be so myopic. What about decoys, baiting, using hounds for rabbits, stick bow vs compound, rifle vs bow......
#7 Let these hunters have their category without the derisiveness.

I hope these people get my point and let me note that I do not eat at "Ruth Christs Steakhouse'"with Hannity, I eat at the dollar board at "Mc Donalds".

God Bless and Best,

New world record elk??????

The fact still is it was not free range it could not get away and it was only raised to be sold in a "hunt" if that is what you want to call it. I too am emmbaressed for that guy.

New world record elk??????

what he paid dont care, his money do what he wants, BUT sombody posted earlier about the whole photo looks kinda off. That i see, the body of the animal looks just diffrent like it just a bit pregnant or somthing like that its hard to pinpoint. or like its a cross between an elk and a red stag from europe. I heck maybe the antler mass is throwing it all out of wack. Big smile
