I witnessed a similar conversation. The owner of a hunting Supply store was showing the mount of a 10 point that he had taken at 500 or so yards. A bystander made a similar comment about the deer not knowing he was there. The store owner promtly pointed to the 12 point hanging beside the 10 on the wall and said. "This 12 was taken at 6 yards with a bow, he had no idea I was there either."
It's amazing people buy all these products to conceal their pressance in an area and then become critical of those who don't yet are successfull.
