You must have short memories how about the FT CAMPBELL BUST???
Done of those were record book recorded


No of course I don't and I don't think anybody on this thread said that. What it stops is the ego/money driven hunting that is so bad for hunting in general. That is why to delete the names from record books will not hurt hunting, just the record keeping organizations who exist primarily through the fees paid to have animals recorded.

No, there's not anything wrong with being proud of a kill. No one is saying that. The problem is the ego-driven world of inches of antler is all that matters.

And I feel somewhat heartened that others are now starting to see what is happening. For so long, it seemed that BSK and I were just crying in the dark. Finally, it is starting to sink in.

First: A big THANK YOU to Poser for posting this link.

Second: I'm trying to find out how a column from a small town newspaper in CO found its way to a deer hunting forum in TN.

Poser: Can you tell me how this link came to your attention?

Thanks again for your consideration.

No problem. I get Google Alerts for subject matters related to hunting. Over time and through complex analytics, Google's search engine learns what subject matters seem to interest you. This article came up on my feed, the title caught my attention and the content was similar to philosophies often discussed on this forum. (At the very lease, this subject matter never fails to spark passionate debate). I thought it was a good read, so I posted it. Well done, sir.

It is all Poser does. He searches obscure websites for articles he thinks are of interest. I'm glad he does, some of them actually are of interest but he must have a very dull life.

Ahh. The mystery is solved.
Thank you both for your speedy responses...
and everyone else for their commentary.

It's a touchy subject for sure.

If all of these recordbooks only entered the buck's information, and NOT the hunter's, I would agree. But the drive of some hunters to get their name in the recordbooks is part of the problem. Because of that, I would list all recordbooks that glorify the hunter as being major negatives.


Since those do not exist, I assume you believe they are all negative. I agree that it may be the drive of some, but why should that ruin it for everyone else? I see this as a good outweighs the bad scenario. JMO.

Your kidding right? I've never met a deer hunter who didn't know these organizations. Unless, you are talking all hunters including small game only hunters.
