first of all no one cares if we offend anti's ..it is the larger more resonible non-hunter group that hunters should try to get on their side
not all non- hunter are anti..they just don't care that much and go with what the media portrays hunting as...
as for high fence...you should be assamed to be a hunter and shoot anything in a pen...I don't agree with 480 much but for sure i'll agree with that...high fence is not fair chase it is an artificial environment where harvest rates are nearly 100%...yeh that is hunting.. NOT in my book and it shouldn't be in anyone elses either...it is paying for pleasure..just like paying for a prostitute to have sex..whet ever gets your rocks off i guess... high fense...should be banned
I have never hunted a fenced enclosure. Ok heres one for ya down here we have a elk refuge it is not very large and has hunting all the way around it, how do the elk know to stay there, there is no fence there is just signs saying elk refuge. You can kill an elk if it comes off the refuge, but that wouldn't be hunting would it. The elk very seldome ever leave this area, and there will be upwards of 30 bulls alone staying in the same area even during the rut, makes no sense. How do they know the boundry...
There are permit unit's with 100% sucess rate here maybe they should be closed down.. Hunters need to get off their holyier than though pulpit and fight the real fight, quit trying to close down hunting they think they are above..

It`s fine that you feel as you do. Some of us however, won`t bow down and accept anything and everything "bubba" wants to call hunting, to keep some mystical peace among hunters. Wrong is wrong, and people of conviction call it just that.
Michigan dove hunting should be banned, I don't live there and its unethical to shoot a bird that small..
Hound hunting in washington should be banned it isn't sporting to hunt with hounds. New Jersey Bear hunting should be banned I dont eat bear so no sense in shooting them..
Hound hunting for cougars in california. ban it no sport and I don't eat cougar..
Ban bait sits in michigan again I am above baiting, I hunt private property..
And we defenently need to ban trapping in most states again no sport in setting a trap.. Lets not forget to ban hound hunting in Oregon to do I even need to say why..
Now I feel like a true warrior, I fought for thre common good of all hunters..
Oh you want to plant wolves here why sure go ahead and let's not have a hunting season for em cause you know the old rule if ya don't eat it don't kill it..Sure lets cut back on deer kill this year seems to be losing some. what you want to ban "MY" but why I am the most ethical man...Boy wouldn't that be crazy if it were true, oh wait it is true..
If that's how you feel,stick to it. One difference I see is everything you listed is wild. High fenced animals are not
