Default Selling your trophy

Some lucky hunters are being offeredup to$100,000 for the antlers of the monster deer they shot. (We are talking world record size bucks 250-300 inches). Plus they are given a replical of the anlters to keep.

If you shot a true world class deer, would you sell the antlers for $100k? If not, what amount would it take? There is no right or wrong answer, just wanted to know what other people thought.

For me, all that would matter is the memories, so as long as I had a replica, thoseantlers would be sold to the highest bidder. That money would then go to buying more land.

Well If I had a replica.. and it looked exactly the same...Show me the money!

Or you could sell the rights to make replicas and keep the originals. Either way you making cash going toward whatever you need. Giving you more opertunities to hunt if you do it right.

something is bad wrong with society when a set of deer horns are worth anything to anybody except the guy that killed it.

Not arguing that. Butsome people have more money than they know what to do with. so they might as well send some my way

There is no price tag to put on a world record class animal that you shot. i know that if i shot one it would come with many hours of hard work in and out of the woods. you could offer me any price and i would not sell the original. if someone wants my deer they can have a replica.

If I shot a 250 inch buck and was then offered 100 k I would have to check my pulse because I'm pretty sure I would be in Heaven
