Do you consider hunting behind a high fence fair chase?

A lot of people say that high fence hunting is not fair game for the animals. So I wanted your take on high fence hunting.


“High fence” is a very generic term.  I’ve seen very small high fences where deer didn’t have much escape or native cover. I don’t consider hunting in such an enclosure fair chase.  I’ve also seen high fences that surrounded several thousand acres.  There’s often plenty of natural escape cover in these fences.  I don’t have a problem with folks that hunt in these.  

“High fence” is a tool like a gun. It can be used for good or bad and depends on the mission of the person using the tool.

Enjoy creation,
