    I think Broadmouth Canyon Ranch has both "free range" and "Bambi in a Barrel" hunts.

    So what if it was shot in a fenced enclosure? Not my cup of tea for sure, but big deal he shot an animal.

    If he wants to spend the money, he really enjoyed it and its legal --- so what.

    I totally agree. That kind of hunting is a joke. I would be ashamed to have my pic taken with one. It should be mandatory to show the chain link fence in the background.

    Look up "fair chase". Pretty much fundamental to the idea of hunting. Inside a high fence is not fair chase, therefore not hunting. Just shooting livestock.

    I always tease those folks that I know that go on fenced hunts as to why their taxi displays don't include wire! They don't like it, much as I don't like fenced hunts.

    Re-read the post and substitute "livestock" for "animal"

    I did not mention hunting

    Alright fair enough, you don't see it as hunting either. The problem I have is that buddy posing with the giant rack obviously thinks it is. I'll take every opportunity to distance the notion of hunting from this sort of crap.
