It's the true purpose and roots of hunting.

Antlers are just an added bonus.

When in Canada I hunt for antlers, but remember, under the antlers there is also meat. When I hunt in WI I have no problem shooting does for meat. I have no reason to shoot a small buck and throw the spikes in a box when there are plenty of does to kill.

I would say I hunt for antlers, mind you I take every bit of meat and such. I don't shoot a doe the first day of the year, nor the 2nd or third. I like to see some horns, but I won't shoot a smaller buck in most areas, I would rather shoot a doe.

Meat. You can't eat antlers. Beside, unless you go to a property that is heavily managed, the "trophies" of yesteryear are gone.

I have several tracts that are management for antler type of tracts and some of them I'll shoot anything I want to.
