Default 2 high fence senarios. Yes or NO?

I want to start off by saying this is just a question and I am not trying to say either of these are right or wrong. Just wondering what people think. These are two different high fence situations that really are very different. What do think?

1. What about the high fenced, up to a couple hundred acres that buys trophy class animals for someone to pick out and shoot?
My opinion is that this is not a real hunt. It's like going shopping for an animal to put on your wall and brag about.

2. What about the high fenced plantation who owns several thousand acres and fenced it in and manages the deer herd which already inhabited the land? They don't buy animals to stock the property but instill a very good management program to maintain the hurd they have.

My opinion. I don't know how I feel on this one. I like it for the management part and I like that they don't buy animals for people to choose from.

What's your opinion?

My ooinion, if that's the way you like to hunt, GO FOR IT! I will never knock anyone who hunts high fence operations!

Personally, it's something I don't do. I prefer to roam the wilds.

High fence is high fence and that is not how Mother Nature intended it. Free roaming fair chase in all cases is the way it's supposed to be, in my opinion.

I would not hunt high fence areas. But I have posted this same question on 6 different forums and I have learned from it. Even though I wouldn't do it what about people with life threatening illnesses that won't see next season and it would make them happy to kill a trophy before they die? What about handicapped people who can't do it on their own, should they be left out of the hunt? I wouldn't go as far as saying ban this. I think it has it's place.

wifes shopping list
milk
eggs
butter
trophy elk or deer
carrots
potatoes
red peppers

high fence hunting is not "HUNTING" it is the same as shopping
that is why you have to prove to B&C and P&Y it was a FAIR CHASE

I also feel the same way. We use to have some fenced hunt's here in Ontario but it's been about 5 yrs now since they banned all of it.

1.) That is not hunting in my mind, more like target practice.

2.) Several Thousand Acres is not a pen. There's plenty of room to move about and I think I'd be in heaven if I was able to hunt in such a big chunk of land!
