    Cage hunting is a joke. Pro-cage hunters say that high fences protect the gene pool from outside subordinate genes. Could that not sound more lame?

    Not hunting. Just some schmuck who doesn't have the skill or patience to accomplish something on his own and wants instant gratification and something to hand on a wall and brag about.

    The same type who would jack light such deer and have them mounted whilst bragging about his ability in the woods...

    I would not really consider that hunter... you really work for nothing. All you do is take the shot. You do not track a certain deer all season long or put the effort forth to grow a big deer. I am not one for trophy hunting... I live in a place where some dogs are bigger than the deer. I hunt strictly for the meat.

    i think deer farms are for deer killings not deer hunting

    Sorry, its not for me. It is killing, not hunting. It has all the thrill of hunting in a zoo... sorry... What I find rewarding in the hunt is seeing God's country and animals in their natural environment and trying to outwit a wiley adversary. I can understand that not everyone feels that way. Maybe I'll open a zoo and charge people $3,000 to stick their rifles through the bars and get the thrill of a bona fide kill. I'll probably be rich... can't wait... NOT!

    I think it takes away from the sense of accomplishment when you kill a deer. But if its fenced in and deer are forced to stay in a certain area well its pretty much not fair for them. I'd feel more proud of killing a deer that is not on a game ranch.

    I have two categories for deer hunters.

    Antler hunters. People who are stricly after big bucks to hang on their wall.

    Meat Hunters. People who deer hunt to provide food for his family.

    i think that it is not fair because all that is in there is just big deer but if you have the money i guess that you can do what you want to. i like the adventure of tracking the big deer and getting them.

    I agree with all of you on this subject. Most places pick the deer they want you to shoot. I even saw on VS. hunting in Texas where they shot from the truck. They were just driving along spotted the buck and shot. Never even bothered to get out. That is crazy to me.

    Personally, I would find it more rewarding to shoot a doe using fair chase methods than shooting a giant buck on a farm.

    Beef cattle get slaughtered when they get old enough, this is essentially the same thing.

    You are just paying a bunch of money so that you can wear camo and call yourself a "hunter" while you are doing it.

    I don't see anything "ethically wrong" with it if you want to do it, but I have absolutely no desire to.

    Just don't kid yourself into thinking that its hunting.
