Wow, Ive heard of people steeling equipment out of trucks and stuff but not that, if i ever caught someone steeling my, or my relatives or friends buck ...well i wont even say it because it wouldnt be pretty.
I have a younger brother who is a yuppie he asked me for a set for his cottage.
So i gave him a nice rack 9 point 24inch spread.Now when you mention the yuppie thing I get why he wanted a rack should have given him a spike lol.
I've read there's a big market for antlers.....unfortunately. I can't imagine wanting a trophy that I didn't get myself. Half the fun of having a nice "wallhanger" is telling the story behind it. The other half is having the memory of the hunt.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
