Since you replied to me, I will answer. I wasnt hating, I could careless what you do with your money. And I dont own a feeder either. I hunt public land. I have property that borders some public land that is very hard for others to get too so I have it basically to myself and i hunt with no feed.


No this was not aimed at you. I am just making an observation in general and I include myself in this group. I have no trouble hunting over a feeder. I do it all the time and if there is no feeder Ill thrown feed out- I refuse to hunt fenced property though, am I being a hypocrite? just askin.

That figures out to about 16.6 square MILES of fenced in property. That's a LOT of area. Wonder how much it cost to do that? When yall talk about "high fence", just how "high" is the fence?

He is a very rich man who just sold one of his many companies for $25million. His high fence is looked to be about 12-14 feet in most spots, but I was 12 years old last time I saw it so it could have looked higher than it really was

I don't think so. Sometimes I hunt over corn, sometimes I don't. I rarely hunt over a feeder because it isn't effective (at least where I hunt) at drawing in good bucks. I don't see the difference in hunting over corn and hunting over any other food source.

If someone wants to hunt high fence I have no problem with it, it's just not for me.

My bad. I dont think so if thats what others are doing where you hunt, your simply leveling the playigng field.

I'm not a fan of feeders at all. I find they are horribly ineffective.

Like I said earlier, everyone has to draw their own line somewhere between chasing it down and killing it with your teeth and running them through a slaughterhouse.

Nope. They are fantastic if you're a night walking outlaw though.

Me too. I have a feeder but don't hunt over it. Just use it to keep them in the area. Now I haven't been feeding there but two years. Maybe it will get better if the same deer keep coming to it.

I mean no disrespect but he must be "pretty bad at hunting deer" if he hasn't killed a deer on 800 acted in 2 yrs.

I see no difference in LARGE tracts of land surrounded by a high fence and a LARGE tract of managed land that isn't. If you hunt property where 150" bucks are average, then a killing a 150" buck shouldn't be considered any more extraordinary than killing an average deer anywhere else. I'm totally against high fence in the sense that you order your animal in advance and just show up and shoot it at the agreed time for the agreed price.

I hate the commercialization of deer hunting.
High fence is just another step in that direction.
If the Boone and Crocket club or Pope and Young didn't exist there would be a lot less high fence lands.

But I'm also a freedom loving American by God, and if you get your rocks off by hunting fenced property, then I ain't the guy to stop you.

I have been involved in several large tracts of high fence areas usually in the 2500-4000 acre size. High fence here was used as a managment tool mainly to keep the doe buck ratio in check. On one ranch in west texas it was usual to shoot between 25-60 does each year prior to the start of the season with the proper permits of course.

During the season first couple of seasons only management bucks were taken and after 5 years we started seeing huge bucks. Withgout the high fencing none of this would have happened.

High fenced land is good because that way I can just send my secretary to make the kill.

Those who shoot pen raised yearling ducks or "tamies" as they are known in South Carolina, suck cock by choice.

My point of commercialized hunting exactly.
