For me, any time that the outcome of a hunt can be arranged so that success is guaranteed, then it ceases to become a "hunt", and the people who are doing it are not "hunters". Shooters, maybe, but not, IMO, hunters.
I occasionally go bird hunting for stocked pheasants with a friend, and while it's fun to do, I consider it pheasant SHOOTING, and not pheasant HUNTING, or at least the kind of hunting I used to have on wild birds.
There are times when I would rather go there and just shoot a round of sporting clays, and then go into the pen where the birds I've paid for are, wring their necks, and takethem home to eat. Much less messy, no shot to clean out, and better eating. If it weren't for watching the dog work, then I probably wouldn't do it at all.
I'm NOT saying that this should be illegal. Not at all, as long as they take ethical shots and the like. But IMO, it's not HUNTING.
You bought an animal that you are going to slaughter. No more, no less.
