Nope, if it's not fair chase it doesn't belong in the books.

Game Farm Bucks shouldn't be allowed into any of the P & Y or the B & C Record Books,thats what they get for killing a Deer if it wasn't Fair Chase in their natural settings. [:'(] [8|]

My only question about this whole topic is how could a club with the prestige and respect that both B&C and P&Y have even consider putting these animals in the book?

Everyone has a reason for doing something like this and most are for the benefit of someone financially. How would doing this benefit these clubs? I can only see it hurting them and loosing their credibility. Unless they are figuring that if they allow these deer to be entered then the guys shooting them and paying top dollar to do so would send oodles of money their way????

It would really loose them alot of respect from us real hunters.

P& Y and B & C should not let them in  or start any category for farm deer.

These so called, game farm bucks can`t be considered game animals. This isn`t even hunting, it`s not much different than when we herd cows or hogs into the killing chute.

No farm raised bucks in P & Y.  Nowhere near fair chase.  That would take away from all of those that have gotten the world class bucks that were not farm raised.

A game farm raised buck is just that, an animal raised inside a high fence. Therefore they have no place in the Pope & Young or Boone & Crocket record books.  I don't see how you can find any satisfaction in harvesting one of these domesticated animals.

What you have to realize, is the person who does this is NOT a hunter, any more than a person who works on the killing floor of a slaughterhouse is not a hunter.
 
The only difference is that one is paid to do the killing, and the other is paying FOR be able to do the killing.

Agreed, but where do you draw the line, or is there a line?
 
There are a whole lot of high fenced operations in Texas, managed just like farms, that would beg to differ on who is a hunter and who isn't.
