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.
