Following on from another thread, what do people think about the size of fenced hunting areas in Africa? I personally know a few deer stalkers who've visited to be shocked at just how much of the countries fauna lives behind fences, and this creates an impression to some that there are only 'canned hunting' opportunities out there. Some areas are large, very large, so large that they contain self sustaining populations of species exhibiting natural behaviour, including running for the hills as soon as they see humans, all ideal for true hunters.
But do you have a minimum size area that you'd prefer to use if hunting a particular species?
Do you wish some outfitters were more transparent about the size of their game farms when considering where to visit?
How do you feel about 'put and take' game farms where animals are bought to be hunted and simply replaced when shot?
Is it something you consider of great importance when deciding where to hunt, or are you not really bothered?
Does the whole concept of a fenced area either put you off or entice you to hunt in Africa?
