It might be a lot tougher than you think.

I'm sure they are fed protein pellets as most are on those ranches. That will be the best deer meat you have ever ate.


Commercial venison that I've had in restaurants tastes bland. If one was serious about producing high end, commercial venison, you would have them on a diet of acorns and fruits. Those jamón iberico hogs from Spain fetch like $100 a pound because of their diets. The earth tones of venison (and free ranging game and livestock) are the assets of the meat.


Commercial venison would not be white-tail deer most of the time. More then likely it was Red Deer, but venison could be elk or any other kind of deer family.

Dodgeman is correct, the meat of any member of the deer family is venison.

I also wouold ask for an exotic. You can shoot a whitetail anywhere and the exotics make great mounts. See if they have axis deer or a black buck.

Morer on HF hunting: It can be challenging depending on how it is done. Also, whitetails are naturally more challenging however, you are hitting part of the rut and it is almost a given it will be from a house with a feeder. On 1,000 acres, they would almost have no choice. But, take a bow instead of a rifle and that will up the challenge factor.

Don't go with a preconceived notion. See what the deal is first. I have been on two highfence hunts. One was as tough and challenging as you could ask for. The other (in Texas) was a complete joke. My publisher had to order me to shoot. But check it out first. Heck, it is free and it is no disgrace to kill something if you want to.

I like the bow idea. If I had your opportunity, I'd carry my pistol and shoot something with it.

And if they have a bunch of exotic stuff there, you better not come back on this forum with a picture of a main frame 8 point whitetail unless it scores over 150" :-P

Go Hunting, If you or someone's never been actually on one
you don't know how it will be, If you was going to KS, you could have hunted over bait anyway.

Just cause your behind a fence you may never now it, enjoy

I would go simply because as you said, the brass are going, take their meat, show them how to gut and skin, while you are talking about the latest project in the office. 1000 acres is way over a square mile so it won't be totally easy even if they are feeding in the senderos.

Have a great time, it could be a tremendouse opportunity.

Would you go out to dinner with them if they were paying? Would you eat meat they bought for you? If yes, then why not go.

They are pretty much buying you some meat, if you kill it.

If it's the high fence that bothers you, think of it this way: the chicken, beef, pork etc. we all eat probably couldn't escape either.

Take advantage of this opportunity, you will have a great time, make some contacts, and hopefully gain something from the whole deal.

That's what I would do.

Most high fenced ranches have trail pics of most all the bucks on their ranch so their clients can pick according to their liking. One of my best friends manages Tellico Junction (high fence) here in town and they lead hunters around for 2-3 days to satisfy the hunting part of it while the whole time have spotters co-ordinating where the animal there after is and where not to take them. From what ive seen pics of Texas is full of thick jungles that if someone tried to locate a certain deer they would need a blood transfusion from all the briars. I bet Texas is like a box of chocolates. You never know what your gona get. Dont act like your "iffy" about that hunt. Youl have a blast. If you want more of a challenge stop by my house and get u a jar of SHINE and chug half of it and try and kill one with some ninja stars. Lol

P.s. Most of the high fenced ranches videos their clients hunts. Have fun.
