High fence hunt

I am nearing the end of my hunting days and I have never shot a really nice whitetail. Want a wall hanger. I am scheduled to hunt with a friend and his father in law in two weeks at Quest Haven near Tyrone. Yeah, I know what it will cost.

Any one out there ever been with them, or tried a high fence hunt elsewhere? Tell me bout your experience. Thanks.

Re: High fence hunt

Never hunted there but wanted to wish you luck. I know some will poo-poo the high fence, but I understand your reasons. I'm sure you put your time in.

Re: High fence hunt

I have never done this kind of hunt but my brother has. His take on it is it all depends on the amount of land and the topography of it. He feels that with more acres than less and challenging terrain these can be challenging hunts. Enjoy yourself.

Re: High fence hunt

I've heard about them,Seems to be a top notch outfitters.With over 2000 natural acres it won't be easy. Took my son on a high fence hog hunt when he was 14 down south. Hardest 3 days of our life just to kill a pig! I wish you success on your hunt.

Re: High fence hunt

2000 acres, high fence or not, is still a challenge and will be a nice hunt.

i wish you the best of luck.

Re: High fence hunt

I have never been to that one, but have done a couple others in PA with smaller acreage. They were not easy. We went for doe.The deer are very wary and stay bunched together, so it was hard to just shoot a doe and not mistakenly hit a 5000.00 buck. The average time to take a doe on less than 100 acres was 6-8 hours. One hunt, hubby mistakenly wounded a buck. Chased it around for 2 hours until I finished it. Luckily it was not a trophy, but still cost an additional 950.00! I think you will be surprised with how hard it can be and Good Luck! You deserve it!

Re: High fence hunt

Just curious what size buck you are looking for. I looked at their website and they had three options. Good luck to you sir and being over 80 you deserve to go big.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: High fence hunt

Just a thought - I'm sure it wont be cheap but maybe you can do a couple of Midwestern hunts for the same $$?? I went to Missouri a few years ago for $2500.
You're 80 - do whatever you want and have a great time!!!

Re: High fence hunt

Just another thought, but for the same price or less you could go to Texas and shoot a really nice deer, low or high fence, pretty much a 100% guarantee and you can hunt with a rifle. Good luck whatever you decide to do!

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook
