Just Curious How Many OB Guys Hunt High Fence Guides

Helped a buddy trailer in some massive stags yesterday to NETx for his full lodge setup. Bunch of gals there as well but bringing a few more to keep them from arguing over some tail.

What's the mindset here on it

I would never do it unless someone paid for it for me. Doesn’t really sounds exciting. No hate towards anyone who does it, but a red stag killed in Texas is not a bragging point, a red stag killed in New Zealand is.

Killing pets isn’t hunting

Never in my life paid a guide to take me hunting.

Fishing, yes.

Also, have never been out west to hunt.

Haven’t hunted a high fence hunt, but have driven around a few places that offer them (in Texas). Go hunt on a few thousand acre pen with thick shite and let me know if you still think it’s like hunting at the zoo.

Its liberating. Stalking gets you out in some beautiful country...

That depends entirely on where you go. I have friends who hunt at a ranch that you pick your deer out of a catalog, it wears a GPS collar and you sit in the stand that it’s nearest at the time.

Also work with a guy who hunts axis on a Texas ranch. He said last year they used the side by side to pen them against a fence and shoot them.

What an adventure

I have no interest in "hunting" a high fence. Id rather go shoot a steer out of someone's pasture. I dont have a problem with anybody else doing it, but it isn't hunting. Its livestock shooting. I dont care how big the fence is.

I do get pretty annoyed when somebody tries to one-up my scraggly ol swamp trophies with something they shot in a deer pen.

I object to the use of the word "hunt" in regards to the situation you described.

If that is hunting then I hunted the cow that is in my freezer that I bought from a rancher.

High fence and crossbow “archery” hunters go together like peas and carrots.

re: Just Curious How Many OB Guys Hunt High Fence Guides
I've hunted numerous high fence operations for work. What I learned was that when properly managed, a high fence could and often did present more of a challenge than some private places in Kansas, Texas, Iowa or Illinois.

In fact, there were a few places where the older deer seemed to know exactly what was going on. One place in particular was around 600 acres in Mississippi. There were two bucks the owner wanted killed. He had lots of trail cam pictures, but in a week of hunting, we never laid eyes on either of them.

As opposed to countless midwest free range operations where seeing target bucks was much easier.

I'm not for or against high fence hunting, as long as the high fence operation is managed correctly in regards to the number of deer. However, places like Legends Ranch in Michigan can and do give high fence operations a bad name.

Have not hunted in one but have sat and watched deer in a buddies and have no desire to hunt in one. I’m not against the people who have them and would gladly cash the checks from people who paid me to shoot my pets if I had one.
My dislike is what the pens have done to hunting and how a 12yr old kid who gets to shoot a 200in deer thinks they have done something. I have heard the comments from some pen hunters when someone is talking about a nice free range deer that me or one of my buddies shot and they say “ohh i shot 190 last year” . The fact that they even compare what they have done is the same as a free range mature whitetail somewhat pisses me off.

Never done it but wouldn’t have a problem going if I was invited somewhere. Don’t think I would pay to hunt whitetail behind a high fence because I’d rather go to the Midwest and hunt free range.

So you are saying property management of a high fence operation makes hunting harder?

That defies all logic.

Same, but have had some good friends who could easily be guides who have helped.

I'm not comfortable hunting or fishing with guides, but that's just personal preference.

It ain’t for me, don’t have an objection to someone else doing it. With that said I do enjoy going on a quail shoot with pen raised birds, I enjoy seeing the dogs work , the congratulations on a nice shot, the ribbing for a bad one, and fully understand it is not the same as a wild quail hunt, but when done right with flight ready birds it is challenging and enjoyable…..to each his own

I agree with this. I don't know all the particulars when people go out and do it, so to each his/her own.
