In my experience you should have a good time. You'll see lots of animals because they really can't go very far. And you're pretty much guaranteed a kill.

Never been to one and won't be going ever. I value my hunting experience way more than taking that kind of shortcut. To each his own though and if that floats your boat I hope you have a good time.

I have been to a high fenced ranch before. I arrived around noon and left to hunt at around 3:30 or so and had my animal killed by 4 or 5 its basically target practice or it was at this place anyways. But shoot I looked at dos plumas prices and heck they are WAY cheaper than most places I have seen they usually charge thousands of dollars to kill black buck, axis, or fallow deer. But if I read that right you can kill a black buck or axis deer and a hog for 325. Or a deer eight point or bigger a doe and a hog for 350. Any place around here it would cost 3,000 for buck 300 at least for the doe and 300-800 for a hog.

Enjoy yourself. Depending on the size will depend on what you see. It's not Bowhunting as many know it but several of these places it's not a "sure thing" unless it's a put & take operation. The place your going to is "No Guarentee" if I remember but I have no idea how large it is. I've went to a couple-smallest was 1200 acres & the other was 4000. Take it for what it's worth but it was fun..
There are some who will never go to one & that's fine. I've done about everything in over 50 years of Bowhunting (DIY Elk, Bears, Mule deer & more-public, private land & a few guided hunts where required) so as I said-it's FUN & something you can do when all the other Biggame seasons are closed. I've never done Whitetail but mostly hogs with a few animals I could not afford to hunt in their native countries.
All this other crap just ignore.....Enjoy yourself.

I was thinking of taking my boy to one just to get his first big game animal. He's 7 and only allowed to shoot whitetail bucks in our state. I was thinking it couldn't hurt for him to pop a ram or something like that and get him interested.

When he first started fishing, I took him to a pay to fish pond. He had success and was "hooked" for life. We would only do it once, just to let him know hunting can be more than just sitting in the cold for hours on end.

The place I'm looking at has no fence. It's a 150 acre island.

you can expect a great hunt, depending on where you go. I bowhunted two HARD days in order to get an opportunity at a russian boar. It was very difficult, but i wanted it that way. I talked to someone who went to a different place and there were pigs all over and were told to find one they liked and shoot it. On the other hand i know a guy who went down to tennesse on a fair chase hunt and 14 guys tagged out in two days. So it depends where you go, every place is different, but my one experience was very very difficult.

I hunted in Africa a couple of years ago and about 95% of the areas are "high fenced." One ranch was 225,000+ acres and we never even saw the fence. I think "ahunter55" had the key, ... enjoy yourself, I'll pretty much guarantee you will.

To use the words high fence and hunting together is a shame.
I went on a socalled hunt in texas once with a buddies urging, at a high fence place, what a damm joke. That is the farthest thing from hunting I have ever seem!

I know that this is just my opinion, and that it only rings true in my mind...But it's my mind and I want to keep it that way.
