Just curious where everyone sits in the main categories. Seems some will hunt anything, some will hunt HF if still seems fair hunt for animal, others are LF only but don't want to see it illegal, and others are LF and want it to be illegal for others.

How do you feel about HF and LF hunting?

HF if Adequate (fair to animal) (24%, 33 Votes)
LF only - others can hunt HF (27%, 36 Votes)
LF only - HF should be illegal (11%, 15 Votes)

I'm not sure why it would get moderated unless posts go downhill, I hope not. I've never seen a poll on it before, so if there is some rule against starting a poll about HF vs. LF I'm not aware of it. This is United States, not Iran.

I am surprised the HF if adequate crowd isn't bigger.

Ill hunt LF and HF, I don't have a problem with either. Naturally you can go to far with the HF. The places I have hunted that were HF were 1000 acres and 1300 acres.

I also think if you are ok hunting HF you should feely admit it and not take offense when you post your picture and someone asks HF/LF. Don't try to make it something its not.

As long as it isn't a pen I am good. Hunting is hunting no matter what or where you do it. We are all on the same team.

That is why I was kinda shocked the 'HF if adequate crowd' wasn't bigger and why I voted how I did.

HF if adequate (fair to animal) is questionable. We are humans capable of abstract thought created centerfire rifles, drove trucks powered by internal combustion engines 100's of miles to pursue said deer that have been filmed with digital game cams that send wireless images to our home computers, and are lured there by programmable feeders... aint much in the process "fair"

I always laugh when I hear that word "fair" used in real life.

I taught both my girls growing up that the only fair that you can count on in life and agree with the definition of comes to Texas each year in October. rofl

There is no one on this forum that should be able to decide what I do on my property. To even have a poll that suggests we should be able to vote on it is not freedom, it's socialism.

Bad form Rob. whip

And for the record, I don't own a high fenced ranch or currently hunt on one.

But I fully support those that do. texas flag

I think our definition of socialism and freedom are different. You don't think anyone should have the right or freedom to have different opinions as you or discus them on THF. Isn't that socialism trying to get everyone to fit a specific mold? To me the freedom and rights of all of us to have different ways we prefer to hunt and openly discus them on THF is the greatest gift of all and 100% American. I think your brand is better suited for North Korea or Iran, not Texas especially!!!

I'm torn on this one as I just returned from my one and only HF hunt experience. It was harder than heck and not a one of us bow hunting elk could even get close enough to sniff a shot. I did take one with a rifle on the last day and while I am proud of it, I know it wasn't the accomplishment that a successful free range hunt would have been.

Overall, I think it is personal and situational. What is fair to one person might not be fair to another. I am fortunate to have the time and resources to be on 2 leases and I have no desire to hunt deer or turkey anywhere but there and will get out there 10-15 times at least this season. But not everyone has that the time and/or resources, and/or access. So to each his own.

Freedom to do anything you want, does not exist on private property. This site is private property. The rules are not optional, they are mandatory. Freedom in America has no bearing on it.

When in someone's home, I follow their rules - or leave.

I agree 100%, but if the owner and community act more like North Korea/Iran than United States, what does that say about them?

I'd rather just give up hunting and take up fishing exclusively if I had to hunt in pens. Put up the fence and go pretend to hunt....the hell with that.

We are hunters, we aren't fair. Y'all can paint this illusion of what's fair if you want but it's a lie. We go out and pick what lives and what dies. The animals don't have a say, it's our choice. Set up feeders, hunt with rifles with huge scores, train deer to feeder times/certain vehicles etc. Then stand up and claim you were fair it was the deer's choice. Y'all hunt how you want to and I'll do the same. This back and forth over who is the better hunter is ridiculous.

What size fresh water compound do you fish? Do you use artificial bait, live bait, boat, fish only from shore, electronic fish locator, cane pole, use a net, 3 # line or 17# test, barbless hook? Just curious

I enjoy fishing too.

I voted HF if adequate, each animal has a minimum area, which if smaller, it's movements are constrained. when you get over 1000 acres most animals have enough room. I actually worry more about habituation to humans, an animals natural wariness, can be overcome by too much contact with people. The third factor is if the animal has been naturalized to the enclosure I want animals that have been living on the land for at least a year and preferably longer.
