I just watched (again) Randy's mule deer hunt on the Kaibab plateau in Arizona. It reminded me again of how refreshing it is to see a group of hunters who can appreciate hunting for what it is. My hunts are not failures if I don't bring home a trophy set of antlers. The time spent in the mountains and with the wildlife, friends and family are always worth the price of a tag. It seems like in most hunting media today, it's all about the trophy. "I won't shoot that buck because he'll only score 183 and I'm holding out for 185 or better." I would love to shoot a huge mule deer just as much as the next guy, but that's no why I do it.

Keep up the good work!

Very few hunters left that could care less about inches. I’ve hunted long enough now that I care more about wild places and scenery then I do about pulling triggers on trophy animals. It’s been a few years since I’ve shot anything even though I have had plenty of chances. I like chasing adventures, horizons and the next ridge line

Me and my family hunt to have fun, not to get a trophy. Everyone would like to shoot a monster of a buck or bull, but it's not our main concern.
