& to hesseu…. Great comments & discussion above…. HONESTY. love it!!
I’ll be honest…. I finally got to a point in “hunting career” where I just “don’t care” or “love to gamble”. I’m NOT saying this is right/wrong or how anyone else should do it…. Just how I view it now. If they get killed - that’s what happens. This dude was feeding in field by road & vehicles were coasting by slow. Turning headlights off. This is coming off a couple years where a local got busted/convicted on 49 bucks rifled out the truck window.
& yes- 1000000% he could have been shot by a neighbor!!! No doubt! Or die of ehd. Or hit by car. But- I know all this and I’m ok with it. It’s a gamble. & gamble I’ve lost. But- I’m just at a stage where if I eat a tag- I don’t care. I really don’t. When a deer hits 4 or for sure 5…. The odds go WAY WAY down they get killed by neighbor though. They usually just too smart. Even in higher pressure areas - older bucks don’t get shot like the 2-3 year olds.
All a personal choice & absolutely case dependent. This gamble worked out. The next one pry won’t. On this farm - I now have zero bucks I want to shoot. So- be fun time for Does & a management buck & bringing kiddos out!
**I actually love these kinda discussions with folks & buddies. This is fun!
Now…. The general public when anyone kills a big one & “that guy” who makes stuff up or gets jealous or is a dbag …. No time for that. I remember what that Franz guy went through on that deer.
. Oh- I already had my first off the wall comment a guy said online that was outrageous. The stuff people come up with is wild!! This one was a whopper!! Guy was an idiot. Hope folks shoot good bucks & it’s FUN! No bs. How it should be!!
