“Would you shoot a 180″ 3 year buck?  You would!!!  Well that is just wrong and you are going to ruin hunting.”  That just sounds silly to me, but the sad thing is, conversations just like that go on every day all over the web.

Why would someone say something like that?  Well I think one part of it is that on the web, people will say anything because there is no risk or chance they will have to back up their words.  Everyone is an expert and you all know exactly what I am talking about.  But this day and age gives everyone the ability to yell at someone else because of something they believe in or something they were told to believe in.  Now I am not saying that QDM isn’t a good thing.  I totally believe in it and think its a great program.  But would I pass on a decent buck because it’s not old enough?  A Heck No.  They only time I pass on bucks is the first couple weeks of bow season and the first couple hours of gun season.  After that, I am to hungry to pass on deer.  Will I have a better chance of shooting a great buck by passing on the small ones?  Again Yes.  But I like how the little ones taste so I prefer to shoot them.

Now the religion of hunting is how everyone criticizes and chastises all others for not following their way or beliefs of hunting.  I am not a religious man and you will never hear me discuss it hear or on my podcast.  But others preach their religion is best and others preach their way of hunting is the best.  But is it really their way of hunting or is it just the way they wish they could be.  Ya, I wish I could go out day after day and pass up 160″ 4 year olds every other day.  But if I am lucky I will get to pass up 60″ 1 year olds.  We as Average Hunters don’t have the option of hunting properties like this.  So we take what we can get and love every minute of it….. Wow, I am jumping all over the place.  What is the topic of this again.  Oh ya..
