There is a digital mapping company that put all the location information of B&C and P&Y entries onto their GPS chips. With one these in your GPS, you can go to the exact location where the trophy was taken. Good idea?

    You'd do the punishing?

      by those looking for offspring bucks ! It could maybe be only a small
      number of incidents, but do we need any ? If it is found that areas
      have produced more than their share of record bucks, it could lead
      trophy hunters to seek permission in those areas to hunt and that of
      course would be okay. I would have to think most of these animals
      would come off private land and not public lands due to hunting pressure.
      However, it might be a good starting point in helping one so inclined to
      locate larger bucks, maybe !
      Just having the product doesn't make one a trespasser.

It could lead to an increase in trespassing, poaching, out-of-staters coming in to lease ground, etc. etc. It makes me even more reluctant to ever have a deer officially scored than I am now. And if on the off chance I did shoot a deer big enough that I would have it scored, I certainly wouldn't give away the exact location where I shot it.
        There's a good case for not giving an accurate location if you tag a large buck.

          What a way to ruin someone's hunting spot.
          Charlie, I agree with you on this. It should be a warning to potential record holders.

            JM, I was thinking the same as you!

              It's a good marketing idea. But could become illegal.
