    i dont take trophies. i have one set of antlers i use for calling deer. i occasionally keep a deer hide for my own use and give the rest to friends. i eat the deer i shoot and the fish i catch.

    i dont have anything against it i just would rather have more deer meat than dusty deer heads :)

    EVERY deer taken is a trophy!!

    instead of mounting heads to remember the hunt...i tend to remember the hunt every meal i make out of the venison i took.

    My tree stand was about 20 yards in the woods off of a fire road. On the other side of the fire road was a fence and then a field my cousin was hunting. At the time I was too young to get a foid card so I was hunting in a tree next to my grandpa. It was around 4 when my cousin got out of his stand and spooked the deer our way. He came in with a bigger buck and a doe. I couldn't get a clear shot if the doe and the monster buck was 75 yards up behind a few bushes and a tree. So he was a no go. Then this youngster was about 45 yards out and only needed a few steps forward for a clear shot. At this point my 20. Ga. Was up and my red dot on waiting for those steps. He looks up right at me, then paused for what felt like forever then took the step I needed then bam! jumped then ran right twards me. My grandpa was shocked when he heard the shot, because he didn't see the smaller buck. 1 shot one kill. Took out both the lungs and ruptured the heart. Man he was good eating too. this was december 06 down in crab orchard wildlife refugee beer carbondale il. In 07 I took a doe. And 08 got nothing. Got in to a bad accident oct. 09 missed hunting that year and now looking forward to this years deer season.

    Young Bull Moose taken in Me. Nov 2011 with a Ruger M77 3006 at around 200 yds. Not really trophy size but yum yum good. After near 25 yrs of lottery entry's in NH and Me I guess any Moose is a trophy

    I got this on a trip to Wyoming a couple years ago. I took it with my Mark II at about 50 yards. One shot, right through the heart and lungs. He dropped where I shot him. He was some darned good eating.

    The rule I use is If a ring stays on the point we call it. Mine is only 5 with that rule.
