a whole lot of people want to make sure they are right about there guess of the age and score. it can be extremely tough to judge in the summer months so the more opinions you have the better idea you can have. a whole lot of people put restrictions on themselves and they try to keep them. they don't shoot the first thing that comes by them (not knocking people that do). not everyone does that. but don't knock on us trophy hunters and we wont knock yal the meat hunters.

Because size does matter \:\) to me anyway. If the opportunity to kill a high scoring buck didn't exist, then I would not deer hunt. I would duck hunt. I get my joy in killing mature large antlered bucks and having a good time hunting with friends and family. At the same time I don't shove my trophy hunting style down a meat hunters throat. Do what makes you happy.

I believe nearly all of us are both "meat" and "trophy" hunters, some a little more one way than the other.

Can't say I've ever met a "meat" hunter who would shoot a doe instead of the "buck of a lifetime" if they were both standing side by side, and most "meat" hunters will choose to kill the larger antlered buck when two bucks appear. Why? Because nearly all deer hunters are intrigued with antlers, and most eat the venison as well, even those who are mainly "meat" hunters.

I think when it all boils down, as long as you are happy with what you have killed then it doesn't matter what anybody else says or thinks.

I love venison. I love the fact that I can feed myself and my family with the meat I kill and process myself. But I don't hunt to acquire venison. The meat is just a bonus. I hunt because I'm a hunter/gatherer, and to have participated in the process of hunting. I hunt to have hunted--to satisfy more core desire to be a hunter. And part of that experience is the challenge, and for me, it takes a specific age of deer to provide the level of challenge I'm looking for.

If I hunted just for the meat, I would shoot only fawns, as they taste the best.


This!! Nicely put!!
