What? LOL! You're reply is quite by the way you responded to his post!

It's hilarious reading your reply to his. Most all the horse pucky you wrote hadn't a thing to do with what he said. Matter o' fact, let's check one out...

sussexhunter says:

"Not sayin there is anything wrong with huntin for big bucks or deer management, but whats wrong with someone who hunts to feed their family?"

From that you gathered all that ** you had to write? Holy smokes dude, ... wow! By that you say his words are "divisive"! In fact, you're trying to make something out of nothing right here and now! Thus you self-fulfilled your own little dissension!

If you want to put words in other people's mouths and mince others, feel free, but carrying on and trying to make something of nothing makes you look.... well, you know. LOL!

You fail to understand and CAN'T comprehend your interpretation and reply to this gentleman's post is in itself... "divisive". LOL! So please forgive me that I see the irony here that you're blinded by.

Hang in there sussexhunter! You didn't do anything wrong buddy.

I never said anything was wrong either way did I. I made the reply in another post how this topic keeps coming up and low and behold it's come up and its on the front page three times alone. My whole statement to start with is how it ends up ultimately about one being better than the other. It's always pitting the meat hunter against the trophy hunter. The fact it gets ask just shows someone is looking for justification that they are doing it for the right reason. Apparently you have somewhat of a comprehension disability.

I'm sure glad you are here to police these topics and take up for the downtrodden. These poor souls surely would fold under the pressure of someones elses opinion without you coming to the rescue. You go boy.....

See, that's what I mean. LOL! You're putting words behind his intentions. You don't have a clue of his intentions for his post, yet he explains it so c.l.e.a.r.l.y.!

He isn't looking for justification for anything! He very simply made a post of which part of it said: "Not sayin there is anything wrong with huntin for big bucks or deer management, but whats wrong with someone who hunts to feed their family?"

Then from that your uncharacteristic rants(for a normal hunter) started to take place. LOL! Talk about comprehension disability. Look who's talking! The poor guy practically introduces himself, makes a post about meat hunting that pisses you off and you flip out. That's fact. You go girl. LOL!

Flip out ...haha...right. I post a reply to a topic and you post a reply to a reply. It's like you follow me around and dissect my post. You surely have something constructive to do rather than show your juvenile behavior. Get out of your moms basement and get a job....

Bear pig, go eat some corn. KYman, I consider the source for guys like you and I'm not impressed in the least. Go create "divisive" posts elsewhere that people may appreciate your comedy routine.

I guess one has to ask himself, if he hunting for a challenge and for fun, or hunting to show pictures and say you kill one.

I don't like it when I see button bucks killed. I have accidentally done it myself. Kick myself when it happens.

One thing I can say, if you hold out and kill a mature 200lb deer, he will have more meat than 4 button bucks. So if you really are a meat hunter, it doesn't make sense shooting a fawn or button buck. Kinda like planting a garden and going out picking the corn when its not half grown.

I mean, you can kill two birds with one stone. Be a meat hunter, hunt for the challenge and still come out ahead.

I used to say I was a meat hunter. It was the days when numbers where down. I mean if you didn't take a scraggly 3 pt, you might not get a deer. But in MD/DE, thats not the case.

When I started passing on deer, i was amazed on what was right behind that doe. But a person can grow old and never see a mature deer if he shoots the first thing he sees.

And look at it this way, hunting a button buck is about as challenging as playing hide and seek with a 4-5 year old. But imagine outsmarting a 30 year old. Its an accomplishment.

Thats happened to me alot over the years, some of those BBs can be as big as momma does, by gun season. It always seemed like a waste to me. I will also not argue that when it comes to being dumb, fawns are at the top of the list, but if youre hunting in really cold and miserable conditions, just staying out there is a challenge. I muzzleloader hunted for 5 years before I got a deer w/ one. I just couldnt seem to find any deer during ML season. I wanted to wack a brown thing my ML so bad,I was willing to pull the trigger on any deer, I finally came upon 2 fawns bedded behind a tree, on a ridiculously cold and windy day in dec. I sat there for 30 minutes saying, the 1st one to stand up is toast, the one that stood up was a BB and I gladly put a .50 maxi ball through him. I was stoked! I consider that hunt a challenge because I my frozen finger could barely pull the trigger!

Whats wrong with yearlings.

Why do we eat veal? Whenever I see a yearling I just picture those succulent oh so tender back straps on the grill.

When I see a 4 year old I just see sausage and burger.

Yearlings are challenging:

Small target, need to be accurate, either head it (if you are qualified), or wait for that perfect broadside shot, it is critical not to damage any meat.

Yearling does reproduce, so I have no problem keeping the population in check. I dont take the little guys though, I usually use my hand gun when filling the freezer so identification is never a problem. But there are some people who I hunt with who need their eyes checked. Out of 20 some deer we took last year, 3 were of the button buck variety. I would rather see more does taken. I want to see those mature deer work a little harder to find companionship during the rut.

There should be a yearling only thread. Id be all over it.

big country, you raise a point about the size equivalence of a big buck to four small ones. It might be a little over kill of a comparison, but I do see your point. A little food for thought, is it realistic that you may only pass up on four deer before killing a nice mature buck. There are parts of DE that have very nice mature bucks. There are also parts that do not. One thing I ve noticed since moving from PA is, these guys are well fed. They dont have to climb up and down mountains all day and scavenge for food. They are practically livestock in their dietary lifestyles. I have noticed that many of the larger deer are on private land. My cousin in law shot two 12 pointers last year on his buddies farm. I do not have much land to hunt on and the surrounding areas are public, its like a company picnic during shotgun season. I will say that when the freezer gets close to full and my wife has canned all the meat she is willing to can in a year, I dont mind to wait and see what comes out after a few does.
