im a opportunistic hunter. I hunt mainly for meat and don't have any trouble trying to harvest the first buck i get a chance at. Bucks are few and far between here so any is a trophy to me. I would deffinately love the chance to harvest a big boy butany deer small buck doe or large buck is a trophy deer to me. They all cook up the same.

For me it's all in how I feel at the moment. I always like to take a few does, some for myself and some for my friends and family. I will even kill a doe for the hunters for the hungry program here in Illinois. As far as bucks go, some years I shoot the first ones I see other years I have passed on some nice shooters waiting for a P&Y. This year is all screwed up because of this darn contest.

I would say I am an opportunistic hunter. I will harvest any deerI have a legal tag for. But if a nice rack buck appears I would be more than happy to harvest him also.

I'm a Trophy hunter, in that, if it's a trophy to me I'll take it. If it's eligible to go on the wall next to the one in my avatar I'll take it. I've let some border line bucks walk. That may cause me to eat, as you say, "tag soup" but to me tag soup tastes as good as venison, cuz I don't really care for the meat.

I guess it would be both for me. I will shoot a doe for me or friends for meat, but usually if I am going to shoot a buck with bow or gun it needs to be big enough to put on my wall which around here is anything with 8 pts or better that is beyond his ears in width. We don't have alot of "big" bucks so anything around 16'' and wider is going to be pretty good.

I usually hold out for the larger bucks, 8 points or better. I just don't like shooting smaller bucks anymore.

If I need meat in the freezer I have no problems taking a doe or two.

I am a meat hunter. Alot of people look down on the way I hunt but the old saying goes "If it's brown it's down"
