I can absolutely agree with that Winchester. Who isn't amazed and transfixed by the very outer limits of what Nature can produce? I am.

I know many young people and adults alike are duped in to thinking the wrong thing from watching many shows and reading many trophy reports. That said, it takes a pretty naive and gullible person to believe everything he reads and see's on TV/Internet. As I have said before, common sense goes a long way, just unfortunate that its not nearly as COMMON as it needs to be!!!

The one major downside to the idea that TV hunting shows are "just entertainment," or that a little common sense will solve the problems, is that it has been proven over and over and over again that propoganda works. Hear/see something enough times, and it WILL sink into your subconcious. This is the sound scientific basis of advertising, marketing and political rhetoric. Companies/politicians spend so much on these things because they WORK.

I agree 100% of all in the above posts.

I also have no problem with record books. I just don't want the hunter's name included. I was a member of P&Y for nine years although I never sent a head in or had one scored for "the book". The book standard of 125" was a measure we used to rate bucks. Then, it became a measure of success. Then, something I can't expalin.

Today I hate it when I hear, "Will he book?" There should only be one measure of whether or not a hunter shoots a buck. Assuming it is legal, that one measure should be, does he want to shoot him? Nothing else matters. Not one thing.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.
