Sorry my attempt at humor. I think this is the other extreme of hunting. A lot of people hut like this in the US and in Europe although I don't think they put out feed in Europe. IMHO this is not hunting. I suppose it could be likened to fishing putting bait out there and waiting. But if I was laying in wait hiding and had an animal at 75yrds calmly eating without a worry. its not a hard shot

I'm sure some will disagree but that's my opinion.

I have no issue with waiting in a hide or in cover. I do it whisking foxes. But combined with a feeder is just cheating/culling.

I’ll ignore all the jokes. Was funny though.

I guess my position is that it isn’t hunting. Call it shooting, culling or vermin eradicating but not hunting. I might add I have no issues with farmers doing this in the case of large pig numbers or other pests.

Hey OB, I'd be a bit careful 'cause over in W.A. a bloke fishing, with empty stubbie in pocket was fined by the boys in blue. So I'm not sure how "whisking with foxes in a hide" would go down. :lol: :lol:

Oh, Any photos? :lol:

What the hell was he fined for? Surely you can have a beer while you fish?

Yep, "Drinking in a public place". The police even viewed video and charged him on that. The commissioner of police stepped up, and rescinded the fine.

I understand your point fully but you can't discount that higher population density in these countries limits a hunters available range, hence why blinds and bait are commonplace as staliking a few hundred yards in the wrong direction might put you in another hunters crosshairs.
Is it hunting? Well in those circumstances there is really no other way so yeh I guess so, by default really.
If I prayed to a higher power it would be out of thankfullness for the virtually limitless deer hunting opportunity that the communsit state of Victorian-Grad offers me.

Bigjobss you are certainly right there with the hunting conditions in other countries. I have been in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and a few others over that way in the country side and some of the places they hunt are like what we would call parks. They may be a few km from a small town which a lot of these countries have a lot of well contained and spaced out with farm in between and perhaps a wooded hill or two and thats where they hunt.
Likewise in the US for all the freedom that they have it is one of the most restricted places i have been they seem to have rules and regulations and ballots to take a animal from the wild all sorts of things. Then someone may have 400 Acres and it is dotted with elevated hides every where.
We do have a lot of freedoms in Australia that we take for granted and not appreciate, thinking the grass is greener elsewhere.

Couldn't agree more! As narcisistic as that sounds :lol:
