Are the glory days of deer hunting coming to a close?

In the beginning my neighbor and I put a fence around the totality of our property. Subsequently, some years later, he started a commercial hunting operation on his property. What we had learned is how much bucks travel. So to be fair , as I had far more plots and feeders than him, we then built a fence between us. So now my 1350 acres is fenced separate from his.

I think building a partial fence is a big mistake. Can do more harm than good. Creates a funnel deer will go around simply out of curiosity especially during their walkabouts. I have no idea what current fence cost is but assume expensive. We built ours ourself. 8' high. T post spacing critical. I can get into all the details if valuable.
