Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Oct 14, 2017

Seems like one of the most controversial topics amongst hunters these days is high fence hunting. So, we decided to take another deeper look into the subject, only this time with Shawn Smith from Texas. Shawn, along with his father Rowan, runs a high fence-low fence ranch, a deer breeding and genetics facility, and a deer fence manufacturing company. There are many permits involved in running a high fence ranch, state granted benefits, state agency involvement, and there are quite a few things that we can learn from deer in a high fence/low fence managed hunting areas that we can take to the field on even public grounds.
