Since CWD has appeared, the state has made it very difficult to sell and transportation deer, which is putting the antler growers out of business. One of these growers is looking to get rid of his herd, but can't release them because of CWD, so he is thinking about selling bow hunts to cull the herd. I know it would not be much of a hunt, but the deer range from 160 to 200+. Would you think there is a market, and if so, what would someone pay? I believe the deer reside in a 5 acre he pasture.

Not my cup of tea. I'm sure someone would pay to "harvest" a trophy like that. Just better not brag about it here.

I second Dkershen. That isn't a hunt, especially on 5 acres. Of course there will be some jackwagon who will pay for his trophy "hunt" so he can hang it and brag about it.

Had it not said "5 acres" I think it would get more interest. This would be killing livestock with a bow.

Hah! They'll be all over it.

I would be interested if the price was cheap enough to sell the antlers and break even. That's free meat.

It's not hunting, it's live target practice.

It's the same as any other high fence hunt.

Ha! No trolling... Just seeing if there would be any market for it. I would have no interest in paying for this kind of a "hunt".

He doesn't have a larger fenced area he can release them in for you to pretend you are "hunting" them in? And btw I have nothing against HF operations. To each his own. I know of a couple of breeders that have there holding pens but also have 200 to 500 acre HF areas as well.
