Not really. We have whitetail deer on our land here where I live, yet I travel 1000+ miles to shoot the ones you see on my wall. And spend considerably more on a license that it costs me at home. The one I recently made jerky of is a "local" deer here at home. They're a bit smaller here but just as fun and challenging to hunt. We have pheasant farms/preserves close to home also, but to shoot wild birds you have to travel quite a bit north from here (900 miles is the closest terrain and conditions that will support wild, reproducing pheasant). I don't mind the drive for that either.I like to mess with their heads, so I drive 200 miles and go into Sainsbury's Local. I also go into Tesco Express and spend as long as I do in the big Tesco.
That might be wasted on an American?
