Good point, but I think that's just what some folks with a monster passion for the sport do. They believe wholeheartedly, and they want to spread the word. I know I can't help myself. Lord, read the serious deer forum sometimes. Now there's some passion!

Speaking of passion, I will add this. You know how I toss back my trout (except one 10-incher a year on an annual camping trip)? I don't care what the rest of the world believes, that's just me. So anyway, like Hook, I am 10x more passionate about catch and release river smallies for Hook's same reasons. The thought of ever killing one for any reason makes me want to The resource is too precious and easily depleted to waste on a supper plate. Again, I'm not dogging anyone for their thoughts - those are just mine.

If not for the slot, though, perhaps you wouldn't have caught anything. Probably the reason you didn't catch any below 16 is that people killed a lot of those fish. I'm not dissing your beliefs at all, but your catch size is why I like the slot. It would be much better if it were all catch and release and you just bought your fish at Kroger. ;\)

Slot lakes are frustrating in a tourney, that's for sure, I assume that's what the guy's in the video were doing.

I don't like to keep anything big, if you want a mount just take a pic, measure it and get a replica, it will last longer than a skin mount anyway.

My point is you will drive your self crazy trying to make people change that don't want to.I spent thousands of dollars trying to manage my deer heard just to see small6 8 and 10 point bucks I let walk, cross a fence and get killed by someone who did not have the same standards as I.I applaude your passion for the sport and conservation efforts but more regulations are not going to change that guy who does not have the same standards as you.the deer thing made me so mad I could not enjoy the sport anymore.All you can do is have your own standards, you can't force those on someone else and neither can the TWRA.Lead by example sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.Thanks for letting me join in.

When a management practice is biologically sound, I am for it 100%. When it is put in place to benefit a select group, I say elect Obama.
