I love this thread, and even though I use trail cams for trespassers, and just for fun, I really do agree with Savell's sentiments. Even as a hunting guide I agree that the whole quest for the biggest of anything is ruining the whole idea of hunting. I wish I could do Brown bear hunts for less than I must now charge. But the whole big-buck$ hunting industry has everyone wanting a piece of the pie. Before I even started figuring in my typical expenses of conducting a bear hunt I must pay the State DNR a Land Use Fee, and a hunter Per Day Fee, and the Borough gets a per hunter and per day fee, then the Native Corporation gets a huge chunk of each hunt for using their lands, then the Alaska Big Game Commercial Services Board gets a big piece of each hunt, and my insurance company wants in on the action too. Just these overhead costs amount to about $3000 dollars per bear hunter.
Whitetail mania and the internet has pretty much ruined a bunch of recreational hunting. I feel bad for the younger folks and people of lesser means.

No I'm really glad you nailed him. Was it with your red rider BB or the ole wrist rocket and marble that did him in?

I figured ol' Savell just jumped out from behind a tree, winked at him, then slapped him dead.

I'd shoot that unicorn deer in a heartbeat, and not just to remove him from the gene pool. To me something odd like that is a real trophy.

Once they get older than this deer I shot a couple years ago, they only get tuffer. I didn't know this ones name until I ate him, then I called him veal. smile
