Just wondering how many calls and inquiries you guys get of guys asking for a free range hunt, where you only offer high fence hunts? Where no hunt is booked with you and that's the only contact you made with them.

None of my clients/hunters think that I am open range. (Fair chase is a pretty loose term.) Is hunting pen raised birds fair chase? We have discussed the topic to death on the forum, so I am not going into details here.

In the west, I get a lot of flak about a fence. Peterson, Boone and Crockett, and some of the shows on TV don't help. If I do a show in Ca, I bet that 70% of the people ask, and then state something like "I would never hunt behind a fence." Forget that they fish in stocked lakes and ponds, shoot pen raised pheasants, and that they probably would have real trouble without a guide, the high fence is still a stigma.

Not so much in the East, and in Texas, the problem is less that 10%.

BTW, I reload, and belong to the Nosler reloading forum. at least 25% of those people have a negative view on hunting behind a fence. But they are more open to it than most people that I meet at West Coast shows.
