P&Y private bucks VS P&Y public bucks

Unread postby john1984 » Sun Apr 26, 2020 4:22 pm

There once was a rich man who had plenty of trophy racks on his wall. This rich man decided to hunt public land one season and he ended up eating tag soup...,,

Why did the rich man eat tag soup that year ?????

You have to work your but off on public, success isn't free and hard work pays off. I'd guess the rich guy thought it was just going to be like his premier private land. To him it's just about a trophy to brag about to his friends. To some it's about doing what others cant on an equal playing field.

Shot them on both private and public in more than one state.... I’m not rich.

Be careful dividing hunters. It’s like saying if you don’t shoot a deer with a stick bow and wooden arrows you aren’t a good hunter.

Hunting isn’t about class warfare.....

I would say instead of $$$ you pay for them in time, effort and work.

The context of the question was meant to stir the pot thus the snap back answers. Nobody here is trying to divide hunters with class warfare. Any deer killed with any weapon is a huge accomplishment. I’m sure nobody here will disagree with that.

Good......and I do think it was intended to downplay the accomplishments of any hunter not hunting public.

And I can voice my opinion too. Been here along time.

Sure seems like as a moderator you were saying exactly what I said. Is that not your quote?

Yes it is but I never said it makes somebody a better hunter. Sorry if you read it that way. Like I said this thread was meant to stir the pot and it appears it was very successful at doing that. My comment obviously didn’t help any. Thanks for calling me out on that. I deserved it.

Point taken but being a moderator doesn’t mean I need to be politically correct on all things I say. I will always tell it like I see it and not hold back and I respect others for doing the same. Opinions are very important and everybody needs to accept them. It’s when we start arguing among ourselves that the problems begin. We all need to be conscience of that myself included.

Public or private doesn’t matter to me. There’s a big difference i think when it come to doing it yourself vs guided. I know a bunch of guys who go with guides and think they are good hunters. They aren’t. They are trigger men. Force them to do it themselves and they would really struggle. I respect woodsmen ship. Can you figure things out in a new area. If you can go to new areas and figure it out then I respect your skills. I live in ND and know a lot of guys who shoot stuff over bait. If you took away the bait they would struggle too. They like to brag about the deer they shoot.

All of this is very subtle but there’s a difference in my mind. People should do what makes them happy but shouldn’t look down on people because the animal isn’t a certain score.

My buddy got a buck mounted this fall because he shot it with his dad. That’s the right reason because it means something to him and him alone.
