wildschwein,

Thank you for touching upon probably the only point that was still left unreplied to. The “exotic” argument is another reason I posted this topic. While it is not a reason or excuse to have or not have high-fenced areas to harvest (I also don’t see it as hunting) it can allow for interesting table-fare and even trophy. I am actually glad I had the experience at the preserve. In a wierd way, it led me to appreciate “true” hunting that much more. I don’t plan to go back, except MAYBE with the little tikes, and that is becoming more and more of a maybe every day. I am actually looking forward to feeling my butt go numb out in the woods much more than I have ever looked forward to a trip to the preserve. I still would love to get a Fallow or Axis deer though. Unless I save up the scratch for a trip to Europe, a preserve may be the only way. BTW: If you ever plan a trip to Florida, bring your bow. Some great and inexpensive hog hunting in some totally open (no fences) ranches. Be well.

Alex
