Not criticizing, just pointing out that the rich have a different mentality than the rest of us. Look at what they pay for jeans - hundreds if not thousands of dollars for a pair of frickin' jeans that likely come with a hole Brick Wall,)

Hell, when I was young, nobody gave me a pair of jeans with a hole, I had to earn that damn hole myself.

People are different and different things floats their boats.

As whitetail season approaches, I am most excited about the opportunity to sit in a tree and the possibility of shooting a monster buck. Any buck I take with a bow will be a trophy. Just wouldn't be any fun know that with almost absolute certainty that I would shoot a buck I picked out in a catalogue. But, to each their own.

Same here and every animal I harvest to eat is a trophy and I use as much of that animal as I can for anything I can. I still agree 35 is too much for me so I could never find myself ever even thinkin about spending that on a hunt I would rather make friends with someone who lives where I wanna hunt and hopefully I would be able to get them to put me up for one.

People that spend a thousand dollars on clothes have something wrong with them (mentalliy I beleive) the only reason I could see someone doing it is for them to think they are better then everyone else. I dont have to wear 1000 dollar clothes to be happy my 45 dollar pants I wear and wear for years will do me fine. Like CVC said to each his own.

Deer arent even worth 16k .

I don't exactly know what you would call it but it certainly isn't what I call hunting ..more in the line of selective killing ..no different than going to a farmer and picking out the turkey you want or the goose of beef for that matter paying him for it . only difference is it's a wild game animal thats normally hunted in the wild ..the only pleasure they derive is having it mounted and getting there picture taken and being able to display it ..hunting is much more than that ..skills passed on from father to son and so on enjoying nature respecting the animals you hunt learning about tracking ,stalking ,calling and the list goes on then passing those skills on to your kids and lets not forget conservation so hopefully their kids will be able to continue the triditions ..

Yes, you're right, it is, and as a result, I've gotten much more pleasure out of any high fenced hunt I've been on than having an animal mounted and having my picture taken next to it. In fact, some of my fondest memories with family and friends were on these hunts that you so strongly hate, I've got just as many challenging hunts and good times under my belt from these as I do from the "fair" chase hunts I've been on actually.

But, I don't expect to change your mind, all I'm trying to say is until you've been or unless you associate with those who do go, don't generalize and make statements like you did. That'd be like me saying that anyone who lives in Canada is a socialist moron just because elements of their government are really far to the left. That wouldn't be fair to speak of a group of people that way just because of what little I know about their government and/or because I don't agree with it.

I guess no one can believe in what they want too eh 7mm just because you do it and like it dosent mean any of us have to like it or agree with you, And just for the sake of this what would we call you guys if you called us socialist morons.(Not to mention I bet more than half canadians hate the government we have. Do you like yours or agree with what they do?aka the bush family.

Nobody likes all of their government and it has nothing to do with fair chase.

atomikall I do believe 7mag stated that noone should judge others on what they do not fully know or understand.

Again like I said a page or 2 back, a 1000+ acre high fenced hunt like they have in Texas is more than challenging to ANY hunter pro or amature. Unless you have tried it dont knock it. Those deer have more than likely NEVER even seen the fence on acerage like that. Its a proven fact that a buck will generally stay within one mile of where he was born if there is food water and cover. And in Texas on these places there is plenty of all 3. If you havnt hunted in Texas let me clue you in on a little.... One thing you are certainly guarenteed is rough going... They have bugs that can damn near carry you off... Dang near every plant has thorns... Even the dang dirt is hostile. And those deer know every square inch of that terrain and how to use it. A friend of mine, who is a VERY good hunter, has went there 3 times on deer hunts and come back empty handed. Once was by choice because he just didnt see a buck mature enough to take but the other 2 was because he couldnt get up on them. Now again I am compleatly against these operations that hold deer in little pens and tame them where you could walk up and cut its throat while it is eating out of your hand. But these larger operations are doing good things in the breeding and selective culling of lesser genetic deer thereby helping the over all herd structure. Another thing that isnt generally known is that they frequently release many deer off of their properties to help the states population of wild game with healthy genetics and overall population numbers. Instead of arguing about things that we just SEEM to know about, lets all educate ourselves on facts and not just argue on the credits of the few bad seeds. The bigger picture is this, our way of life as hunters is being slowly but most assuradly stripped away by the government and the anti's and the constant battles amongst ourselves about things that some only know a little about isn't helping. We as hunters need to band together to insure our way of life.

.... I never stated that i hated it !! I don't agree with it being called hunting no more than i would call fishing in a stocked pool in my back yard fishing ...but i thought i would be intitled to my opinion Brick Wall,)
