I would not touch that with a ten foot pole! That is not a hunt.

Interesting states that were picked. I would advise your client that he can accomplish a successful hunt in a larger acreage ranch. A hunt in which he is requesting is not available.

Midwest can you clarify the size. It looks like you are looking for a hunt on 2 - 20 acres!



The industry does not support such action in a small enclosure as a hunt.

It is just this sort of "hunts" that gives the industry a bad name. This is not hunting!

He understands its not a hunt, he is short on time and looking to gather product usage footage. He has done this in another state, but that place is no longer open. The states listed are because he is located in IN and doesn't want to travel really far. I personally do not know each states laws on sizes of the preserves, so that's why WI was listed not knowing it was 80 acres Min.

Over the last couple of years I have had people contact me about shooting bucks right in my pens and I am always on edge thinking they are animal right groups trying to gather material. I always decline their offers and usually give them numbers and contact info of a real preserve. Don't get sucked in!

While some deerfarmers were against a minimum size for hunting preserves, 80 acres here in Wisconsin is really a modest size and we are glad that rule is in place.

And thats kinda on the small size after a few years of use if you have no regrowth or a browse line. We have to be careful where we tread on ranch sizes.
