Because as scn mentioned, few hunters actually see hunting like that anymore. Far too many hunters these days see hunting as a competition sport, with their entire identity linked to what they kill. It's all turned into a big egotistical chest pounding exercise.

Exactly, and if we were only so lucky for these points to be "givens" for everyone that hunts!

Great article that everyone needs to read. I'll have to reread that in the middle of the season too.

Words I have been preaching for YEARS!!!

After having been at both ends of the extreme of 170 inch kill vs 90 inch kill, I can honestly say, in the end, NOBODY really cares about what you do as a hunter.
As long as you are legal, it is really only about YOU!!!






trust me, 90 is not the extreme. they much lower

Ever since the average hunter became aware of Boone & Crockett scores, deer hunting has turned into a numbers game. I cringe every time I see a hunter showing off a picture of a nice buck but he or she feels they have to say "it's good for around here". When I started deer hunting in the 70's there were no deer - and I don't want to ever go back to that - but I would like to see some of he old attitudes come back. Back then if you shot an 8 point you had a fantastic year. It could be a 10" spread 8 point and the guy who shot was honestly proud. I know - that describes my 1st buck!
