How do y’all feel about hunting large acreage under high fence? 2,000+ acres all low fence cross fencing, no introduced genetics or breeding program, just native deer on a very large tract of high fenced land. Or exotics On the same large tract of land?

I feel that in the case of high fences, a person should follow ones own ethical standards and not seek the opinions of total strangers on which path to take


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

For me it’s all circumstantial, a 100 acre pen isn’t for me, but on a large enough place I would have no problem. I know it’s very controversial and I’m not looking to start any arguments with anybody or amongst others. Just seeing if people felt different about them under certain circumstances.

Sir do whatever you feel is good for you. Nothing wrong, unethical, or illegal hunting HF. If you feel good with it then do it. Does not matter what others think. Good luck

What is the actual question? You are doing it or just wondering? I would do it for myself but not others. It's an expensive experiment involving a lot of time and money.

A belated welcome to you. This is a tired old war on here and just isn't the same without some of the zealots that are no longer signed on, of whom no reason or logic would persuade. 100 sections under high fence was a "pen" to them.

For 4 years I hunted a 10,000 acre high fence pasture, as you described, low (old) cross fences, no protein or introduced genetics. I enjoyed the property and the hunting very much. Some would look down there snoot at me, but...at least I didn't hunt it with a 6.5 Creed. bolt

"Different than 2000 acres low fence, but what ev", I can tell you what ev. I have 1st hand knowledge of a completely legitimate & successful 2,200 acre place that was being raped by its smaller tract neighbors and had HF installed to protect themselves. If I had beet LO, I would have done the very same thing and even though it created a bunch of cost and time requirements.

It sounds like a lot on here are tired of this debate and I am too. I do not want to debate it but I do wish you would clarify something thats confusing to me. Are you saying the HF is 2000+ acres or you are hunting a 2000+ ac pasture thats been cross fenced out of a much bigger HF area??? It wont matter to some but in case this debate starts to rage then it would be helpful to know the facts.
One thing we will likely find out is if a certain member thats been silent for a good while is really gone or not cause no way will he let this one slide by.

It's a silly argument. The same people that will castigate you for hunting 2k HF acres have no problem sitting 50 yds from a feeder and murdering deer while calling it 'hunting'. As long as what you are doing is legal and poses no danger to anyone else, carry on.

Now Now, there is no place for logic in this thread.

It's a personal decision, you be you. When and if you do it, and are successful, tell us about it. Hunters that post pic's are looking for recognition, and there's nothing wrong with being recognized and complimented by your peers. Don't hold back on the details if you post up a great buck. A frequently asked question on a post is, "HF or LF", so go ahead and include it. Hunters want to know.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

You are at the top of the food chain, laws and methods of take were created solely for sustainability of a resource. If how you hunt still ensures sustainability then who cares.

But in a nut shell if your are solely hunting to conform or based off someone else’s opinion of your experience or animal you are hunting for wrong reasons.

I'll put this out there and you can take it for what it's worth.

I guided on a place that was HF in the hill country, and one of our pastures was a measily 250 acres with no introduced deer etc, it was completely native. WE had 4 bucks that were 3.5-4.5 YO on it. There were 3 feeder/stand locations and 2 protein feeders. All 5 spots always had cameras on them. I'm sitting in the blind one evening and see a buck walk in, and couldn't ID him. Got good video of him and called it a night. That buck was guestimated at 4.5 YO himself, and not one time had he been seen in person, or on any of those cameras until I saw him that night. We all thought it was pretty wild.

I'm all for Native HF hunting, it's just an easier way to control population numbers.

To each is own. I've had fun on both HF and LF. Enjoy being out in the woods wherever you are.

Grew up hunting public land in Arkansas and Oklahoma, so anything other than that is wrong... soap

I find it humorous that the same guy hunting over a feeder or food plot will crucify someone that hunts HF. It’s ALL non-natural manipulation to tip the odds in the hunter’s favor. If it is legal, and you want to do it, then do it. If it’s legal, and you DON’T want to do it, DON’T do it.
