I just went back and read the original post. Somehow I missed the reference to "canned" hunting. I don't know any hunter that would use the term nor do I know any hunter who would even consider being a participant in any sort of "canned" hunting. Such practices are beyond despicable and no true hunter would mention things like this on a public forum.

I am officially putting this JonMBailey guy on my ignore list. He may be many things, but he damn sure isn't a hunter in any sort of way! I'm done with him.

I think everyone should seriously think about putting this guy on ignore and maybe he'll fade into the sunset! All he's done in the few days he's been on this site is make 50 posts asking a lot of questions that can be answered by quick searches. When he does have members that respond and try to help him about all that they get is some smartazz comeback. He started out saying how destitute he is, wants a dog even though he'll have problems feeding it, wants the cheapset hunting clothes he can find due to lack of money, etc. Now he starts a thread like he has all kinds of money to make a cross country trip by plane or vehicle to do a "canned hunt" that wouldn't be cheap when everything is added up. I believe this person just types to be in the spotlight and doesn't care what he posts or what kind of responses he gets. With those comments I agree with Flags and he's now on my ignore list!

No anti-hunter here. The term is often used by hunters who would prefer guideless wilderness hunting if they could do it.

Jon Bailey, got a deer back in the mid-1990's. He paid a guide a lot of money on his private ranch to do it. I call that a CANNED hunt.

And I can't hunt right now. I am still too broke to do it. I can just dream about it and talk about it. I would certainly like to do it instead of talking here about it.

Just for grins let's define the term "canned hunt".
It's almost as hard as nailing down what "unethical" means.
Kind of hard to clearly define..... eh?

To some it may mean sitting in an elevated shooting house over a bait field.
To others it may mean paying a trespass fee on a ranch and being turned loose among a largely unhunted deer herd.
To another it may mean having the landowner watch the deer all summer and putting the dude in exactly the right place to shoot a particular buck, then writing a nice check to the landowner.

I know what it means to me.
What does it mean to you?

I thought it meant high fence hunting. "hunting" animals in captive.

To me it means any situation in which the "hunter" needs little or no skill , beyond being able to hit a dinner plate at say 100 yards or less with his rifle,
and the animal has little or no chance to evade, using what senses nature gave it.

Yes, rockport, I agree with the high fence part.

No, it is not. The term is derogatory and offensive to hunters.

It is a term used for shooting where the game is penned in such a manner that has no chance of eluding the shooter. There is no sporting aspect to a canned shoot - it is not hunting.

You are either mistaken as to it's meaning, or attempting to use it in an inflammatory manner. The term is often used by ANTI-hunters who would prefer to stop hunting if they could do it

Ditto what Big Uncle posted and that's why I have this yoyo on ignore now!!! The only thing better would be if he takes a voluntary hike and leaves the site for good or gets banned!!! Can you tell I've had enough of his BS!!!
