well tator, on your change of subject topic, i am from the south (as i have said before), that being said i have never been on one of these hunts but a friend of mine has.
Last year i took him deer hunting for the first time and he shot a doe and after following the blood for a while the blood trail stopped. he continued to look for it for 9 hours since this was the first deer he had shot. my dad, cousin, and myself also helped him look for his doe. his uncle said he could come hunting with him after we got home and guaranteed him a deer. when he got back from hunting with his uncle, he told me that he sat at the spot he was told to and a group of people got in a spread out line and pushed the deer to him. he said there was no sport involved nor was there any thrill and there was no suspence on if a deer would show that day. he said he would never hunt that way again and would rather try to lure the deer to him vs having them "forced" his way.
All that being said, i totally agree with him and am also against it. rather its a dog or human doing it, there is no sport if they are being sent to you....might as well put them in a pen with only one way out, wait for them to come out, and fill your tag. BUT..this is just MY opinion.
