Well it doesn't matter if its a "shinny" barrel or subdued barrel the deer is more concerned with movement and not how "shinny" something is. To say all deer will spook because of some "shinny" object is a gross over-generalization.

They were running away from someone's damn shinny barrel movement, and ran plumb into them cars during their escape.

Indeed, not all deer, just them 22-24 inch rack and 10 point trophy bucks that are very wery of all movement, shinny or not.

Maybe you could help me out with this problem. No matter how long I boil those antlers they never seem to soften up enough to eat. Any suggestions? Should I soak them overnight first like beans?

who's to say you can't have a trophy on the wall along with the meat? if you are talking about just eating them, then why wouldn't you go for the big ones?

Because the big ones are nasty compared to the succulent little veal like bambi's, that's why.

In my opinion I don't think the finish really matters to most game animals. If you look back at older guns and gun catalogs, the only finish available was a relatively high gloss blue - in fact a major selling point on the premium guns was the quality/depth/shine of their bluing jobs (revolver or rifle). I don't think there has been a noticeable increase in kill ratio with advent of matte/blasted finishes.

Like most fishing lures, most of these 'features' have designed more to influence how many hunters get 'bagged' by enticing their purchase than any impact on hunting success.

The newer matte finishes are more user friendly / require less maintenance simply since finger prints don't show up as much. From an operational perspective, SS is more resitant to throat erosion/degredation with the high intensity magnums, so users may see extended barrel life vs the standard steel. However, I doubt anyone not shooting competitively will shoot enough for this to be a factor.
