    Matt -

    Thanks for the correction.

    It is true that the longer we do this the better we get. I take so few shots that I hardly ever miss anymore. I normally take the “high percentage” success shots, so my numbers are pretty good.

    I agree with you on the spikes, but if they are a spike on the first viewing, and they are already 1-1/2 years old or older by then, then they are headed for the meat locker if I get a good shot. That is because the nutrition is excellent, and the only variable left in the equation is genetics. And genetics is something I can do something about.

    Jay[/quote:1jpcveks]I totally agree jay….its just hard cause of me being young I wanna put a few trophy’s on the wall still and not shoot little deer….but I knew if I didnt kill that deer he was gonna breed….but that brings me to my next point its tough cause the land I hunt isnt mine I have permission and the people around me I have no Idea if there even trying to manage I know we have good gene considering my 8 point was 1 1/2 old and was well on his way to being one of the bigger 10 points we see every other year…I’m just hoping I didnt kill are up coming bruiser…..but If I see that spike this year meat locker! But Idk I cant resist watching a deer put on a show…next thing you know hes out of range :p
