Question SCI Expedition Safari

How many of you saw the show this week they were hunting at Quest Haven, calling themselves "professional hunters" and you know they were hunting a fence because a group of 3 bucks came in and the smallest was around 200" and he ended up shooting one that had 20 points on each side, big non typical. He even went to say that is the biggest deer he had seen in the wild! To me this just ain't right and I didn't really expect SCI to have this on their show either. What are your thoughts?

As a general rule, if it says SCI, it is behind a fence of some sort. SCI has world records for field mice and will accept just about anything with no regard to fair chase in terms of high fencing.

Although they do spend money in some good places to benefit hunters and hutning, they are all about making money. That is why they have almost no rules other than illegality, in regard to how game is killed. Someone jokingly said tome one time, "SCI has record books for animals that don't even exist."

I think I could get this bat scored.

So, sure it was behind a high fence and of course SCI had no problem showing it. They don't sanction that. The skill required in killing those bucks was the skill involved in making the money to pay for them. Big bucks cost big bucks.
