Free Range Deer Hunts:
4 Benefts Hunters Will Love
Free range deer hunts vs. high fence ones remains a hot topic among hunters that love
to spend a week away at the lodge.
Free range deer hunts mean that there is a very low fence around the property, if there
is a fence at all. It means that the animals can come onto the property or leave the
property at their own will. For most hunters, this also means that it requires a little bit
more skill because they are not already in a large cage, in a sense.
In most cases, high fence hunts include thousands of acres, so it is hardly the same as
shooting an animal that is in a cage, but the fact there is not a fence there seems to
eliminate that thought, and the stigma that comes with it. Here are a few other benefts
that hunters will enjoy when they participate in these types of deer hunts.
NO STEROIDS - When lodges have a high fence, they have more control over the
animal population. Because of this, it is easier for them to give the population steroids
or hormones to encourage growth. Ofen, lodges will do this so that the bucks are
bigger, and the females produce more ofspring. Ten, they will make more money
because the hunters want to kill bigger game.
Unfortunately, this can take the fun out of the hunt, so to speak. It means that there is
nothing natural about it, and that the large mount on the wall was a science project, not
a trophy kill.
MORE SKILL - Some high fence areas consist of thousands of acres, and they are like
free range deer hunting in that aspect. Others, however, consist of a small amount of
acreage and require no more skill than pointing and shooting. It is ofen compared to
killing an animal in a cage. Terefore so many high fence lodges have a bad name.
When it comes to hunts without a fence, however, there will never be the question of
how many acres are behind a fence to determine whether it requires the same level of
skill. Instead, hunters know that what they are doing requires the skill of a hunter.
