Re: The definition of a trophy

GREAT POST!!! Agree with everyones opinion. For me the most important part of hunting is enjoying every minute out there, every buck or doe, every hill, every glassing session, every stalk, every shot, everything about it, and of course all the meals hunting gives me. Nobody but you know what did you put into each hunt!!! Dont care what someone else thinks, if any specific animal is a trophy for me, and they dont like them #!$%$..ck them.

Re: The definition of a trophy

As I look around me right now I see a lot of small racks on the wall, dresser, shelves etc.. I have only 2 shoulder mounts and they are not monsters. I also have a lot of great stoties, memories, etc.. to go around.

Every year it seems that I pass up good sized to large racked bucks early in the season only to shoot something smaller later. I don't regret it when the season is over (not always anyway). I get to spend alot of time out with my son, brother, and friends, enjoying some treasured moments. That is why I hunt, to me a monster buck or bull is just a bonus.

Re: The definition of a trophy

All well said.

I have never taken a booner, I would like to, but if I ever do, I will probably not enter it. My trophies are mine, and they mean a lot to me. I shot the biggest bull of my life last year. The best memories of the hunt are that it was my son's first hunting trip. He shot his 1st deer a couple hours before I shot my bull. Then the next day he shot his 1st elk, a cow. Most of all, when I get to hang that bull on my wall, I will remember my son running down the hill to where I made my shot to greet me.

It's all in the memories of the hunt.

To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.

JE, very good post. What is it that makes some of the so called "help" at sporting good stores so arrogant. Like all of us on the other side of the counter are not worthy. Oh well.

You did a great thing.

Thanks for the post.
