The Senate voted down the measure that would have imposed restrictions while officially sanctioning some high-fenced hunting preserves.

For the second year in a row, the Senate shot down a bill regulating Indiana's high-fenced deer hunting preserves. The legality of the state's high-fenced hunting facilities has been the subject of legislative debate and court proceedings for a decade. This year's legislation would have limited the industry to the four existing preserves and imposed significant regulation.
