What is a canned hunt?

A canned hunt is hunting animals that have been captive-bred on game ranches until they are mature enough to be killed, typically for trophy collections.

Many hunters determine if they feel a hunt is canned based on difficulty, property type, hunting style, and many other factors.

It is an extremely debatable topic and is dependent on the individual.

If the guide intends to present an unrealistically high chance of success for the hunter, reducing the experience to more of a shoot than a hunt, it is understandable why many feel this is not hunting.

If the hunter foregoes a hunt in a wild setting in favor of a guaranteed or quick kill, where does one draw the line between hunting and shooting?
