Not even close. Community stands. Nobody "owns" or has rights to a certain deer. First come first serve. We have deer that are kill deer (must be 6 or older) and deer that are do not kill deer that are not mature yet. We let our bucks get to their full potential by letting them mature. Takes lots of patience. We have let many 180 inch plus bucks walk because they were not mature yet. They grew into 190 to over 200 inch deer.
The deer in the first picture was 5 years old. We let him walk. Next year we killed him. 200 inches
Bottom line. We all work together to grow big deer and respect each other.
No problem from me with all that
The cartoon and my posts were about the new
trend of "reserving " deer that someone sees on
their game cameras and gets butthurt when it
gets harvested by someone else.
I've seen that, and I still don't understand the concept
of a "reserved " deer, unless you're in a high rack
and your guide is specifically telling you what to shoot.
