Re: high fence animals

In my opinion its not even close to the same thing if the animal didnt have a fence would it live that long would it even live there? For people to say its the same thing then why didnt you just go out and shoot one without the big money and fence? I have spent alot of time on hunting well all my free time have some dang good whitetails on the wall and am very happy to say not one was in a high fence all was free range kills. Thanks good luck to all

To each there own though, don't hate on what other people do as long as they are not breaking laws...

Actually you came extremely close to saying it is the same thing,

"I have killed multiple 150+ bucks in low fencing, low fence or high fence on a big ranch is all the same for the most part. With a high fence you can actually let your deer mature before one some else pokes him a year or two early.

Anyone that thinks hunting in a high fence is cheating is out fo there mind, it is no different than patterning deer using cameras, planting food plots, or using corn feeders to draw them in."


I don't hold hunting in high fence animals against you, just not my thing.

well i didnt want to be rude and just take over your thread. Yes you pretty much said it was the same. Drives me crazy people go shoot an animal that cant go ware it wants if you call that hating then so be it, sorry. If hunting in a high fence is the same as cams ect. then why not go buy one and kill the deer it would be way cheaper?

I should have clarified my answer by the size of the game ranches, which i obviously didn't but whatever.

I do use cameras...

Have you ever hunted on a ranch that has a high fence? Try it sometime you may find out it's not as bad as you made it out to be. Like i said in another thread it's more about the commodore during the paid hunt i have then the deer i actually take. If you tried it and hated it that's great,l but what dives me crazy is when people talk about something they have never experienced (not saying you personally haven't)...

Do any of you hunt exotics, like Axis or blackbuck? Would you shoot them in a low fence area or would it have to be no fence at all? Reason i ask is Axis and blackbuck for example are scared to death of fencing and won't jump a 4' fence so in essence for some exotics a 4' low fence is the essentially the same as a high fence for whitetail.
