Why must the bowhunting farm be 3000Ha or larger? Just wondering?

I have read a few american articles that refer to the 3,000 (sometimes 5,000ha) number as acceptable for "fenced" hunting :(

I am also wondering is that taking into account animals natural territories that they themselves wont move out of irrespective of size of property?

As a bowhunter one would typically walk&stalk or you would sit in a hide (sometimes a combination). I will probably be crucified for this (and I am a bowhunter) but if you sit in a hide the size of the farm is immaterial. It can be 5 Ha or 50 000 Ha but the only place you are hunting in is the 50 square meters in front of the hide. You might want to move to a different hide ( 50 meters away but still the relative size of the total property is immaterial.

Any experienced bowhunter will tell you that the art of W&S is in how slow you move so if this is your preferred method of hunting then you would not cover more than 2km in a day out and 2km back (I am not talking about walking between places or to get to a destination). For W&S with a bow a 600Ha or 1000Ha farm is fine.

Big farms are great and in my mind I like to know that I have access to all that space but in reality, when getting down to the facts and numbers, you don't need 3000Ha minimum to bowhunt. Don't limit yourself by making such a demand as I know of a number of fantastic bow hunting farms of 1000Ha or less.
