Default High Fence = Hunting?

I'm currently involved in discussion on the other site on this. How do you guys feel about it? IMO if there's a fence, it aint right to call it hunting. But I only own a few acres.
Does size matter? A fence is a fence. If it does'nt, why not just remove the fence?

The thread over there was locked down. I'm disapointed more hunters can't seperate themselves from ANY fenced "hunt". Call it a harvest and I'm fine with it, we've done in cows, pigs and chickens and put them in the freezer. There was no part of it I would call HUNTING. Stop supporting it as hunting, it is'nt. It should never be spoken of in the same subject as hunting. We cage trap alot of critters to keep them out of the garden, and I don't consider that hunting either. Let's stop the bull****, and stop supporting what is'nt right just because it's currently legal. Alot of stuff is legal, but it doesn't make it right.

Like when we elect a Senator, who gets a retirement plan as soon as he's in. It's legal, but it is'nt right. OT a bit, but you understand. Stop accepting **** that is'nt right just because there is a loophole in the law for them to hide behind. We need to police ourselves. Hunting is not in a Union. We don't need to protect the ****heads just to save hunting.

I'll put my 2 cents in this one. well, i think it has a lot to do with the size of the ranch. Imo and only my opinion is that if the ranch is over 1000 acres or bigger it really doesnt matter cause a deer is a master at hiding from any predator. Most people make the misconception that if a ranch has a fence its some sort of a advantage. and that might be true to a certain extent but like i said before, take a mature deer and put it in a 1000 fenced in acres and see how long it takes the average hunter to kill it.

I'm with wilkerson on this one. if the fenced area is huge and most likely larger than the animals home range then what is the difference. On the other hand if the area is 50 acers and has 30 trophies walking around on it I would call that fish in a barrel. If a stream is stocked do we no longer call it fishing?

I would consider the use of many game cameras a bigger advantage to the hunter than having a high fence around 10,000 acers. but I use a game camera all the same. not really for scouting locations more to get a look at what is out there and identify the shooters and the ones that are yet to become shooters.

I have never hunted in a fence and don't intend to.

Have you ever hunted high fence? I went to a ranch in Tennessee to hunt some wild hogs a couple years ago and it was 2000 plus acres and it took me the better part of the weekend to kill a nice boar. Go hunt a mature whitetail and let me know if its like shooting fish in a barrel.

My take is hunting is hunting ,as long as it's legal then it's fine by me.There is enough bad press against hunter's we dont need to fight among ourself's about what is right.
Do whats legal have fun and get a huntin.............
