    There's a progression most hunters go through. You should go ahead and take the big buck now. He may not be there next year.

Hunting is the thing that drives many of us, why we do it may be different for each of us. But what you shoot is your personal preference, don't let anyone tell you how you are going to hunt when it's you doing it (legally) and the other guy doesn't have to live your life living by his decisions. We have too many people trying to run our lives as it is.
    Bo, you are definitely right. Live your hunt the way that pleases you (as long as what you do is legal).

    Nope, good nutrition and age make big deer.

    The genes are probably passed on like you said so I totally agree!

I saw this guy on TV talking about his "bad neighbors" who don't practice the same idea of trophy management as him. Why does he feel he needs to tell us how to hunt. Not that I'm telling other people what to think, but my trophy room is a big white box, and I couldn't be more happy then when it's full of deer burger & steaks.
    There ya go! I like the big white box trophy room!

    I have the privlage to hunt property that borders a hunting lodge in MT, and there is a lot of game movement, should I take the biggest buck in the heard or wait for an even bigger one? or ethically do I let that monster buck breed for one more year?
