To high fence or not to high fence? That is the question.

Hunting behind a high fence – or in a preserve – has been around for thousands of years.

To high fence or not to high fence? 

That is the question.

And, yes, I know it’s a controversial one for some in the hunting community?

But allow me to open this can of worms for discussion.

Hunting behind a high fence – or in a preserve – has been around for thousands of years.  Hunting a preserve or managed land was the norm for the upper classes of Europe and the royalty of Asia and remains so in modern times. 

Today preserve hunting is common in most of the world. 

Even in Africa where the preserves can encompass more than 100,000 acres.

It’s only in the US that preserve hunting carries a negative connotation with hunters.

Which is odd given that hunters managing land in places like Texas have saved several species from extinction.  Species like the addax, scimitar-horned oryx, and Dama gazelle.

When managed correctly, high fence property produces great game and excellent hunting opportunities.
