Had the honor of hunting on a amazing 1900 acre high fence ranch down near Laredo this weekend. Being that it was high fenced and there were handfuls of MLD tags needing to be used on culls and does, I came prepared with lots of bullets and coolers. After all, it's high fenced and that's shooting fish in a barrel isn't it? Our guide showed us pictures of several old culls that were on the kill list, some of which would be my largest buck ever. Well what I didn't expect was with the rain they have received this year the amount of brush and how dense it would be. I saw deer every sit but no bucks that were on the cull list and unfortunately all the doe I saw had ear tags and were off limits. After talking with the manager of the ranch I found out that most of the bucks on the cull list had only been seen on cameras and never in person. Did manage to take two hogs and a javalina. My hunting partner had a little more luck and managed three does and funky looking cull buck. Had a great time and was just amazed at the amount of cover the land has down there. So everyone that thinks that tall fence makes the hunting easier I would suggest trying it for yourself before you judge. It can be every bit if not harder of a hunt on the right ranch. That was my first HF hunt and hope to do again next year.

Chris,

Glad you had a good time but don't expect your post to convert anyone. The feelings on HF and LF are very strong and the discussions can be pretty interesting until the posts start to get personal. If you keep an open mind you can see valid points on both sides.

All that said, hope your hogs are tasty.

Congrats. But don't expect anyone to actually experience something before they judge it.

I have a couple of high fenced bucks on my south Texas ranch that have been on a hit list for 5+ years. One is at least 10 years old now. Targeting specific deer can many times be the most difficult type of hunting.

Stx does it each year on his "small" LF place and always seems to connect. What's wrong with you? rofl

Just messing with you. Hunting is hunting, no matter where it is done.

Congrats to the OP for an interesting first experience. Hope the next trip is more productive, but congrats on the experience, the hogs and javi up

cheers

Thanks for sharing your experience.

The ignorant will remain that way by their choice and I will continue to refer to them as such.

I hope they give you another opportunity to connect on one of those bucks. up

Chris is a very good hunter who's very unlikely to make a mistake. He'll be invited back and kill one of those bucks, I'm sure of it.
