THe reason we all want to know age and score is mostly because everyone has spent way too much time watching idiots on TV who have no idea what they are talking about!

I know for a fact that I have killed MANY 2.5 and 3.5 year old bucks that were much more challenging to get within 25 yards of my bow because they had been hunted to death by everyone on public land since birth. These deer have watched their mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters be killed, gutted and drug since they were old enough to see over the tall grass. These deer have learned to associate NEGATIVITY with human scent since they were old enough to smell.

On the other hand, I have hunted places where the sight, sound, and smell of a himan meant very little negative reaction to the same age class deer.

So when I ask what kind of hunter one is, and what they kill, I am much more interested in WHERE they are killing their deer than how old that deer is.

Because to me, a deer maturity is measured by human negative experience, NOT by inches of antler.

I other words, how good is that deer at evading hunters?

And how often is that hunter killing these "mature" deer?

Nope not at all. Some hunt for meat some hunt for horns or manage there land for older bucks it has nothing to do with maturing or progressing

Don't blame me for you not being interested in the good toys. You're just missing out

Crap! I posted my "Guess the score" as a learning experience for everyone...I already knew what it scored and it was already dead, meaning I had already surmised that it was a trophy to me. Sometimes there just isn't an ulterior motive other than just having fun on a pic forum. \:D

Personally, I post the pic and ask the question to help my judging ability, but also, as a newer hunter, I'm proud to have actually captured something on camera, and then enjoy the conversations that normally come out of it. This is a campfire after all...right???

Now, Steve, we know how you like to stir the pot with your posts... You were really just trying to top Catman's fawn and Gator-n-Buck's Vol threads...

I'm not really into it but I enjoy looking at threads and learning about deer biology/physiology.

I do know that MUP is a hottie 10!!!
