Thank God I'm in the position to teach my children what hunting really is, and not have to rely on spending thousands of $$ for going through the motions of just killing a trophy animal. The trophy should come from your experiences you encounter during your preparation and hard work of finding the animal you are seeking, rather than the size of its antlers. Every animal I kill is a trophy because I know I did it all on my own, from field to table.
I do realize not everyone has that opportunity, and that's why I am so grateful. I just feel sorry for those that can't experience what a real hunt is. As the post started out, is this type of "hunting" really hunting? Not in my book.
....well put red
