I like the guys who hunt in the same general area that you do who always claim to have seen every buck you shoot many times before and passed on them. In their minds they know every move every single deer in the area makes and they recognize every individual buck instantly. Smart fellas for sure. \:\)

Yep...EGO!
Even with bow fishing.
Especially when there is money involved.

No matter how honest you are, and how well you obey the law, there are always those who question your success. And abilities.

This is exactly why I am so hesitant to post my or my kids success pics of bow fishing and hunting.

Sure we post a few, but if we post very much the finger pointers come out of the wood work.

So this "story telling" stuff is kind of a double edged sword.

If someone asks how many I killed last season, and I say 14 by bow, 2 by muzzle loader, I immediately get skepticism.

Why would anyone want to kill that many?
How could you legally kill that many?
You must have left some laying in the woods?
ETC!

It goes on and on!

And kill a monster buck. WOW!
The crap REALLY hits the fan then.

And kill several monster bucks...or tell a whopper of a story that IS TRUE!!! Forget it...the liars have already made it impossible to be credible.
You are a POACHER...a trespasser, a violator.

So, my family and friends know. And in the end, that is all that matters.

Liars lie, cheaters cheat, haters HATE!!!

Better to just keep quiet!

Yea those are the best. Had one of my buddies and he would text me about every hour it seemed like, He said "you got one headed your way" I thought well crap he is bound to be right at least a few times. Then when I wouldn't see it, he says "must of went the other way". It was a win-win for him. Then when I killed one he said he let it walk.

I know exactly what you mean. I never have killed much, but I have some big deer on trail camera. I've had a few guys call me a lier and say the pics weren't mine.



Which reminds me, anyone else know the deer expert that simply isn't a deer expert? I've had one on camera for three years (starting with his 2.5 summer pics) Last year I showed it to a guy that does kill big bucks, but he made every negative comment he could. "That deer can't be but about 2.5" "he'll lose a good inch of mass when the velvet sheds" "he'll be a good one next year"

That buck was 4.5 and 135-140

I showed him my 3.5 150+ "dang, that one must be 6.5 years old!"

Those people really grind my gears lol

102, I learned last season to forget about those jealous type who like to pick on you for various things because you killed more deer than they did, or whatever it may be that they didn't like. I still will post what I kill here because there are a few who enjoy to see the pics and read the stories. I'd like to see you post more of your success here, and dont worry about those who try to tear you down. 14 deer with a bow is something I would not hide!

Bingo catman! Some people are sore losers and they get mad because they didn't kill as many deer as you and that is like beating them in a game of cards,'YOU CHEATED'they say! I like hearing about peoples success. There are always going to be a select few jack A$$'s that want to ruin everyones fun. Don't let em stop you from giving reports.

Thanks Cat,
Truth is, it gets old after a while. I just get tired of hearing the negativity and for WHAT??? So I can thump my chest or try to share with others some of my experiences?

From time to time I will, but it is very hard to share without sounding like you are bragging or a know it all. Even if you do know a lot (mainly because you are old)

Sharing and bragging are two different things. Both are a part of hunting. Biggest thing to learn is to ignore the "haters"
