What do you do with a "buck pole" after you win it? Is it good for fishing? Can you sell it on ebay? Since he won it with the deer, do he and the deer have to split the winnings? What idiocy.

The root problem in that playground argument is the whole attitude that hunting is some kind of a competition.


Yeah, I have a strong distaste for hunting "competitions." You're talking about killing, which is serious business. If you have to come up with a arbitrary competition to make hunting fun, then maybe you just don't like hunting. Creating a game out of it seems disrespectful to the tradition of hunting. When hunting becomes about "winning" then the motivations are entirely selfish and ego driven.

Two stories from my time working as a refuge manager in the Mississippi delta.

First, large family property adjacent to the refuge owned by a old woman with two grown sons. It was well known that a very large buck was in the area. The "boys" were hot on his trail, but their neighbor killed him. The old woman called the neighbor late one night and said, "I hope you choke on him" before hanging up the phone.

Second, a large extended family hunted the refuge together every year. One year one family member shot a buck which ran a few 100 yards before being shot by another member of the same family. The two hunters recovered the buck and brought it to the refuge parking lot. In the parking lot, an argument broke out over which family member delivered the killing shot. The game warden pulls up, tries to intervene, realizes the argument is about to get physical, and since it was all in the family tells them, "You sort it out, and I'll see you back at the check station."

A hunter at chuck swan's first Archery draw this year shot a deer and followed the blood trail only to see another hunter loading the deer in their vehicle along side the road that it had come to , not sure if they worked it out or TWRA officer had to get involved. But felt real bad for guy that shot it, He had worked real hard for it. Just do not understand how some people sleep at night nowing what they have done.

A guy i know from my town goes to Illinois every year to bow hunt. 4 or 5 yrs ago he shot a really nice buck. Tracked it and found it and tagged it. Im guessing him being on a payed hunt he didnt think hed have any problems. He left the deer there to go back to camp to get help. He got help and came back and the deer was gone and someone cut his tag off and threw it on the ground.

Is it like NASCAR? You win the pole and get to be "First" in the woods on a special hunt? lol...how ridiculous

i shot a 10 point a few years ago quartering away from me. i hit the deer hard blew out rib and shoulder bone all over the hill. when i was tracking the guy on the neighbors property started shooting... and shooting... and shooting... as i was laying behind a log taking cover, i couldn't help but wonder why someone would carry so much ammo in the woods with them. as i continued on the trail i saw him and his grandson across the property line with the deer i had shot. he had shot the thing from hindend to head along with both antlers. as it turned out he is legally blind, he can still see somewhat and takes his grandson with him to spot deer. the grandson was telling that he saw the deer sleeping when they were going home for lunch. they were both excited so i didnt say anything about me shooting it.
