Since they're STRICTLY low-fence, fair chase ONLY Hunters, one must assume they would never enter such a drawing in the first place. Right?

I think most anti-HFers if given the opportunity to shoot a free Booner on a HF, would do it.

A prayer

Dear lord, please give us a short break from this rain. Another day of rain could mean another AR debate.

Amen.

Most HF hunters if I were standing by them in their trophy room looking at a huge buck and I asked. "Did you Hunt that deer or Buy it?" Would have to answer, "I bought it."
At least that is my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'll play devils advocate, the deer in the chap are not fed protein or corn by the truckload so I'd venture to guess that they might be a little more spooky than a deer that is used to the smell of humans. But then again, I've always heard that the biggest bucks there are in the section closest to the game wardens (or biologist) house, so maybe they aren't that wild.

Anyways, I'd hunt it; but I'd hunt a HF ranch too.

Its not about the fence its about the hunt. If you go in there and put in no work just choose a deer and kill it well I'm not a big fan but if you go in and it feels like a hunt and you work for it then I can dig that. Ive only hunted a HF once and it was for a pig bc I really wanted to kill something with my bow. The guy dropped me off threw some corn on the ground and slung some at the spinner and as soon as he drove off I had like 20 species within 20 yards of me LOL. Pigs came in I arrowed one it is what it is. I didn't like it so ill never go back but it won't stop me from trying another place someday most likely for exotics rather than WT. Oh yeah as I was getting ready to leave this guy drives up and says he wants a ram. The guide says grab your gun they walk over to a fence with a small pasture and the guy shoots a ram standing in a small pasture. I couldn't wrap my brain around that one. Also I would prefer a HF with the deer from that area rather than something trucked in. Using the HF as a tool to optimize your herds potential is different than HFing 100 acres and bringing in some freaks and selling them to a "hunter" I guess that my 2 cents but in the overall spectrum of things I could really careless what people do with their property or what some people consider hunting.

Well if I had to choose a side, anti or not, I would take the anti, no offense. I like the what if factor of hunting... not that I don't think HF has no fair chase.. it does and deer/critters can disappear. I just lean to anti HF due to the natural flow of the wildlife and I always like to think while im hunting, what may come over the fence or onto our property.. I have hunting small acreage like our family ranch 295acres... and larger. I understand that people want to protect what they have from others and its cool. I wish it could have been hammered out by more restrictive hunting rules.. like taking only one buck or more AR counties... Our place 295 acres.... well our cousins that hunt are the worst.. I wish I could HF around their blind, so I understand.. but if they knew they could only take one buck, it would force them to think more I believe.. That being said.... LOL Im more anti HF, but I was drawn for the Chaparral WMA this year for Archery hunt Dec. 8..... AND HELL YES ILL HUNT THAT PLACE! you seen the deer!?
