INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- Lawmakers are considering a proposal that would make it legal for existing game preserves around Indiana to allow hunters to pay for a chance to shoot deer contained in high fences.

The House Natural Resources Committee may vote Monday to allow four hunting preserves to stay in business. New ones would not be allowed to open.
