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.


Well said Wes.

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.


Well said BSK. Exactly.

I'll be a trophy hunter at places that have true trophy deer. Places that don't, let's just say I kill what I want for food.
