Huck i was just wondering something,when you do a high fence hunt does any of that money go towards wildlife as a whole or just to the owner?i know when i buy a tag a percentage of it goes towards groups such as habitat for tommorow.Or is it diffrent in the states?

Different people feel diferrent about any situation. Your way of hunting does not set well with most other hunters in the good old USA. Once again I'll say, If it's legal, be my guest. Just don't expect respect from MOST other hunters. We are not impressed.

You can tell all the stories that you want. You can try to put your spin on it. You can make all the comparisons you want. To me and MOST other hunters, we don't prefer to hunt the way that you do and we are not impressed with your so called trophies.

High fence = Zoo Hunter

We use feeders in Texas ....I love when I hear somebody calling it "baiting"....if a Feeder is "baiting".....what's a corn field in Nebraska called.

RR
You have a point rr,here where i hunt
Its pointless to bait deer because of the already abundent food they have to choose from.as for the scent being considered baiting your right but alot of ppl dont see that connection so you dont see as many ppl complaining about that as baiting.

I've looked. I can't find a corn field at 11,000 ft in the Colorado Rockies.

So, I feel safe in saying baiting is lame. It's also not legal here.

I was born and brought up in Mass. I did lots of hunting there.

I used the same method of hunting there that I do here. Still hunt the timber, or woods as they're called back there. I'm sure it's more crowded back there now, but it's not a whole lot better here, except we have more land, and most hunters are lazy and stay by the roads.

I could have picked any state to move to. Colorado seemed like the best deal for my style of hunting. I've never regretted it. I love this state.

My point being. I know what it's like where you're hunting. It can be tough.

Thanks for your input Lucky, but honesty, why would you think I am looking for your respect? I am very secure with what I do and how I do it. So secure in fact that I do not belittle those that do it in one of the multitude of means legally available. I cannot say that about you.

Skinnnner,

Do me a favor and Google Scimitar horned Oryx. Do what research you can on them and then get back to me on whether or not wildlife in general benefits. Then expand your research to include American bison, turkeys, lions, rhinos, and addax.

RR,

Have you hunted in South Texas? Feeders are everywhere. Thus, a deer has many choices. A hunter cannot shoot that deer if it cannot be seen. The same applies for the deer in the cornfield. Right time, wrong place and the deer dies-either way.

Muley.

With all of my exposure, Colorado will always be home. It all flows downhill from here.

There are woods out there, thought, which are totally impassable for men. Stiil hunting is not an option (this is my favorite method as well). Luring animals from the jungle via "bait" is the only viable means to control wildlife. It's not lame. It is just different than what you are use to. Live in one of these places and you'll see what I mean.
