How much importance does the size of the antlers or horns make in deciding to pull the trigger or are there other equally important criteria in evaluating a "trophy"? Personally, successfully getting just as close as possible before shooting is as much a part of my decision to shoot as how big the antlers are, probably more so. I have driven by animals that would have been easy to shoot from the truck/atv but didn't offer any challenge. A couple were shot days later after relocating & hours long stalks.
I'm not saying that I'd pass up a "Booner" next to the road over a three point up the canyon but it would be one of the many things I would be thinking about. Some of the most important mounts I have on the wall & memories in my mind are not of the really bigs ones but of the hunt to get the shot; the belly crawling, the cactus to avoid, the wind to manage, the other eyes to avoid, the badger at eye level at 10 feet to back up from...all the little things that make up a trophy to me.
I guess the question is would you pass up the 4 point next to the jeep to get to the 3 point by that quakie patch way over there?
