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.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
Making your own maps of human and deer trails, and different types of foliage such as group of pines,...
