  1. Bill to spare high-fence hunting sure to draw fire

    Will Higgins, Indianapolis Star



    INDIANAPOLIS - The controversial practice of hunting deer in high-fence preserves, set to be banned this March in Indiana, would survive under a proposal that gets its first hearing today. The bill in the Indiana General Assembly is certain to be contentious. By one measure, hunting animals on private, fenced-in preserves -- "high-fence hunting" if you're in favor, "canned hunting" if you're against -- is a small matter. There are only 10 such preserves in Indiana. But Rep. Bill Friend, R-Macy, who in the past has sponsored pro-hunting preserve bills, said no other issue evokes such emotion. To proponents, high-fence hunting is economic development, free enterprise. To opponents, the practice is sick and unacceptable and could cause the spread of disease.

    I just got done emailing my rep requesting she vote no on the above bill. I asked her to reply to my request and let me know in advance how she plans to vote. Other message boards are going to try and track votes in advance. I would suggest we start a seperate thread to do the same.
