What is High fence whitetail hunting? 

High fence hunting refers to ranches with fences surrounding the borders of a property and is often known as whitetail hunting preserves. The fences surrounding the property are meant to keep the deer inside and the predators out. They also serve as an excellent way to manage a herd of deer so they can reach a mature age and grow huge antlers. These types of properties are also used to manage, research, and improve the genetics of the deer, providing better health and maximum antler size. Hunting whitetails in the rich South Dakota prairie gives hunters a different experience from many hunting over hundreds of acres of woods.

How do whitetail preserve hunts differ from free-range hunts? 

High fence whitetail hunting differs from free-range hunting in a number of ways. Hunting whitetail preserves does not take away from the natural wildlife conditions these deer live in but offers better success rates. For hunters desiring a challenge these hunts still require skill, passion, and patience to harvest a trophy whitetail buck. While fences are up to keep predators and trespassers out, the hunting grounds remain the same whether they are fenced or not. Many people believe these hunts are guaranteed, and as in any hunt, nothing is guaranteed. However, hunting preserves offer higher numbers of whitetails, are highly managed, and provide guides that know their way around the terrain they still provide the ultimate hunting experience.
