Without a picture with a date on it, it didn't happen.

I wouldn't post it. But I don't post any pics of dead game period. Having learned that lesson the hard way with waterfowl. All online pics do is create controversy and dozens of guys that I don't like begging to go. Having learned this in 2005 I shot a whitetail just short of the magic 200. While I too several pics none made it to the internet. The only people that have seen the mount are my family, taxidermist and guy who helped drag him out.

What I can't figure is why let somebody live rent free in your head? if he caught a grand, great, either way it does not detract from your accomplishments.

I can't even imagine anyone catching 1000 in a season. Congratulations!

I would be ecstatic if I reached 100

An honest number. Already answered that.

I'm a huge fan of goals and I like to share my goals because it motivates me and keeps me accountable. I like when other people share their goals because its fun to see progress and root them on and see what's possible.

I've heard it several times that a lot of people confuse arrogance with confidence. So it's all in how you decifer it in your own mind.

It also says those without sin should throw the first stone. I really cannot see why nonbelievers use scripture when they want but never live by any of it. I am a Christian and a sinner. That is why I need Christ. I know I fall short daily. Having said that it has nothing to do with this thread but simply a way to distract and of course rail against Christians. No one is perfect except Christ. LLL

The fact this guy didn't show off his 1000 catch season should indicate hes not there to brag and self promote himself by showing a big catch picture and screaming look at me like someone else did every chance he could. Then through out the next summer his family and friends convinced him to give back to the trapping community and they came up with the idea to make a series on how much work it is to run a long line in the pursuit of 1000 coon. He's not selling lure or some dream bait he tells u cat food is all he uses. He's not trying to charge 1000 dollars for a ride along He's showing what he does. He got 897 coons with a camera in his hand you really doubt he did 200 more coon the year before he started messing with a camera? Sad day when your insecurities make you lash out at others in attempt to make yourself feel better.

After all if that was my goal and I set out to do so I would certainly document it wouldn't I? I would never want anyone to be able to cast doubt . Not saying anyone would question such a feat. Lots of folks have done it after all. If I was trying and done it for the first time I would have posted it everywhere. It would not be about conceit or bragging but about pride in going so for me anyways at least the first time. When you do it ten times in a row and several times double it I can see it not being worth mentioning at that point. Let's here your thoughts. It might be interesting to think about and look into those who have said they did but never posted about it on their social media. LLL

1000 coon is an lot of work for $50

Well you finally decided to attack me personally on a forum where I can defend myself. The only thing is I have nothing to defend. Everything I have said I have done I can back up. Funny how you talk crap on other forums and say nothing to mein person. Yes I see what you say. Easy way to end this and to stop any doubt would be to simply prove me wrong on my theory. Or is it taking the high way as you guys call it by not proving what you say. Does it make it true because it was on the internet? That is laughable. You all had to have proof any time I have ever said anything and have been proven wrong every time. Have him prove it so you donít look like a sheep. LLL

Myself, I can't believe how hypocritcal most christians are. Not that hard to be humble. Most people post pictures of their catches to impress other people. Plain and simple. It is not casting stones to point out a FACT.

Lots of hypocrites everywhere really. Yes the church is full of sinners too. Still is simply something for you to do to point that out and it means nothing since I agree with you mostly. LLL
