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.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
