Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Not sure why but I just couldn't quit thinking about this story last night.  :bash:  What an awesome buck and what a shame they couldn't get it done the right way.  All that time scouting and hunting and if he would have just spent a little more bench time at the rifle range it all would have been different.

Practice, practice, practice, you never know when that buck of a lifetime is going to present a shot.

This guy had a pretty good idea of where this buck was going to be and just wasn't prepared.

The fine and punishment is a joke.
Should be a minimum 10 year license yank IMHO.

Greed.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Why would the son even have a rifle with him?

Well, surely it was there in case he saw a coyote.

Right....

Because if I had the sheds of a big buck, had the tag, I'd love it for someone to be shooting coyotes while I looked for him.  :bash:

It would be interesting to take a look at the publicly available documents behind that case.
