gjersey---I have NEVER said that high fence and fair chase are the SAME thing!!! Do you believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus too?! My God man, sure things are done illegally in every facet of life, but you just keep spouting more BS about those ranches and that's all it is. The places you are talking about are not the ones I'm talking about. Can you not read and comprehend what I keep stating?? Yes, the captive places that raise their OWN animals also artificially inseminate does and a straw of semen from some of those northern bucks can go for $10,000 a pop! Is your's worth that much because you seem to be the know it all and top dog on Texas when you've never been near Texas and have openly admitted that you don't know anything about it. Now after that comment you have come back with absolute nonsense most of the time about what I'm discussing! I'm done because there is absolutely no discussing this with people who just state things that are not fact and want people to believe them.

Sorry Top gun, i understood what you are talking about, maybe I, you or both of us are one tract minded? But, please, don't insult my intelligence. Catch you later, maybe we'll agree on the next thread.

topgun, my statement about trapping a bull between the fence and me was made really to muleys statement.

And i think 47 sq miles might have more fair chase on it than some other types of hunting.

I am curious, if given a choice, would you be for sportsmanship (something which is extremely emotional and variable between individuals) or a wise use of natural resources (somethig very empirical and fact driven)? I have watched carefully as this thread has developed, I'd like to know. Be honest.

Go...

I think for myself that they are so closely tied together that I wouldn't even want to make that choice.

There would never be a need for a choice. Two different things. Anyone worth their salt, would not stand for anything less than both.

I agree, to be either just one or the other would make a person very narrow minded.

I don't like it because when the fence is built they capture any wildlife in their enclosure thus making it private property. In Texas where I live and hunt wildlife is a public resource.

That being said I believe in private property rights and if someone wants to high fence his own property he has the right to do so. It is not fair chase hunting by any stretch of the imagination.

In Texas its getting to where only the wealthy can afford to hunt.
