Before some of you get all wound up this is my opinion and my preference. Also, keep in my I absolutely love a great pair of antlers just as much as the next hunter but "You can't eat Bone".
I have deer hunted for over twenty plus years and to this day I just can't wrap my my mind around the fact that some strictly hunt for bone. To each his own I guess. I have prideyself on the fact that I am what most call a meat hunter. I hunter strictly for meat to feeds family and sometimes friends as well.
I don't sit there all day and pass up adult doe's or 8pt bucks just because there racks aren't big enough or because they don't have a rack at all. If a deer comes by and it's a mature adult I see food on the table. If it happens to have a rack then all the better but I'm not gonna pass it up if it don't.
This question has popped up year after year and always starts controversy and arguments but I just get so disgusted when I herein the hunting dvd's and even on Facebook that somebody passed up a deer because the rack was what they were looking for. I'll say this again, these words are my opinion and preference. I have never liked trophy hunters and probably never will.
I have always tried to stay neutral whenever this topic came up but no more and the aim reason for that is I REALLY DONT GIVE A CRAP IF YOU DONT LIKE MY VIEWS. At least I can feel good about myself that I'm feeding my family and friends, that I am also contributing to deer populations in my area and that when I do shoot a doe or a buck no matter how many points it has that none of it goes to waste.
I can probably go on and on about this but I'm not gonna, I think you get what I'm saying. If you agree well thankyou and if you don't agree well that's ok to.
