re: B & C ruined deer and hunting camps
I haven't seen anyone say don't kill does in this thread.

What I'm reading is don't kill young deer, whether it has horns or not.

Transitioning to being able to be selective in what deer you kill rather than killing first one that walks out is a very rewarding feeling


Killing a deer in general is a rewarding feeling to me. Killing a bigger buck, which I’ve done, was no more rewarding than killing a smaller buck. The 4 point I killed earlier I had to drag a long arse way by myself with lightning strikes all around me and rain. Forecast had shown storm to come through at 8 pm, instead it came through at 5:30 and hit as soon as I started walking up to the deer. It was rewarding experience, if it was a 12 point it wouldn’t have made it any different.

That wasn’t my point, I realize nobody said that just saying it doesn’t take a huge rack to get lots of meat.

Then those saying it shouldn’t kill young deer, but I’m gonna keep doing it as long as it’s legal.

If you had your own property with the ability to hold deer, I'd be willing to bet you'd change your perspective on it.


If you can hold your own deer, then you can make your own rules and not let the state dictate what everyone else can shoot. It's your choice to shoot deer with big bones growing out the top of their head. I guess to some people it makes them feel like they are a better hunter than others because they let deer grow for years before shooting them with their nose in a pile of rice bran. Some folks don't care about antlers and just want to kill a deer because they enjoy eating it.

I personally don't think we need anymore regulations.

I'm just thankful I have 2 places to hunt, 1 we own and 1 we lease. Either place we don't shoot every deer we see(anymore), but if you come back to the camp after a hunt with any size deer, everybody is happy for you.

It’s all subjective. Your experience and desires may be 100% different than the next person’s. Different doesn’t necessarily mean wrong (or right)


To add my two cents, I try to only kill mature deer. Number of points is pretty much irrelevant. It’s more challenging. I enjoy hunting/killing a old mature deer infinitely more than blasting some young deer. I’d rather kill a 120” 6.5 yo than a 150” 3 yo everyday

The “hunt” is part of the reason that I strictly bow hunt 95% of the time. I enjoy the challenge that comes with bow hunting rather than sitting in a box over a 5 acre green field and waiting (not that I don’t enjoy that style either, just prefer the bow).

Most big bodied deer will have racks that match. I realize there are a ton of examples of the rack not matching the body, killed a great example of it a few years ago. That said it is more the exception to the rule.

And mature bucks will give significantly more meat than does. I killed 2 does in 5 minutes earlier this year and they yielded less meat combined than the post rut buck I killed.

This is hilarious and true. I was commenting the other day that it seems like all these baws have their own Production Companies these days handing out flat bill trucker hats and shirts.

re: B & C ruined deer and hunting camps
I’d be willing to bet that most people who say they are meat hunters and that killing a big rack mature deer makes no difference to them have never killed anything that scored over 120 inches. They probably even look at other people’s pictures on social media and think to themselves man I would love to kill a deer like that, yet they go in the woods and kill the first basket rack they see and say well u can’t eat the horns.

7300 acres high fence doesn't hurt anyone but some OB poors feelings.

They could have, but they didnt really care to. They like hunting in the morning together and drinking/cooking in the evening together. They killed fewer deer, but they enjoyed it more. I was lucky enough to be there for the back end of it

re: B & C ruined deer and hunting camps
Your post is poorly worded. I get what you are saying, you believe the modern focus on score for whitetail bucks is misplaced and detracts from the overall hunting experience. Fair enough, then say that.

Boone and Crockett is a conservation organization that has played a massive role in constructing, developing and perpetuating the American Model of Conservation. As an organization it expands far beyond simply scoring whitetail deer.

I would encourage you to learn a bit about the organization and perhaps join rather than waste time posting misguided rants like this.

I have family that runs high fence. Never had the desire to hunt it.

And we actually own our land that’s low fenced. Not leased between 12 families like most people who do the high fenced game while pretending to be wealthy and visit the “ranch” (that actually runs zero cattle).

I also blame Facebook, because the flip side of this is a ton of hunters (husband and wife combos are the worst) posting hunt after hunt “hey look at the 4 point we shot” “look at the 6 point we shot”

People used to hunt all year and maybe not see a deer. There were no cameras, feeding, etc back then. People hunted.
