It was just a question, lighten up.

Sorry man it's always hard to get tone across on a forum post. I was trying to convey a sense of support for however you called it, not a "don't bother us with your questions" kind of attitude. Glad you're enjoying the tag.

No worries itís all good. Just fired me up when ya said something about you didnít think I knew what I wanted out of this hunt. I do exactly, getting to hunt during the rut, very few people, being able to pick and choose, thatís what itís all about for me. Quality hunting, not quality killing..... But yeah I do want to do that too  :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

I would congratulate you if you killed him, and I'm happy you passed with plenty of hunting left.  I don't agree with don't pass on the first day what you would shoot on the last; I've done many hunts where I passed "better" bucks and was completely happy ending my hunt with a meat deer.  Wring every drop of enjoyment out of that rare quality rut experience, I guarantee that you will enjoy every memory of the hunt and remember every buck you considered shooting when you look at that rack for the rest of your life, whether it's a masher or a fat little forky.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

That's a great perspective that I hadn't thought of.  Pass on day one, enjoy every minute of the hunt and fill the tag on the last day with whatever is available.  Great experience, great memories and meat in the freezer at the end.  Thanks for pointing that out.  I had never thought of it that way.

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

Definitely pass.  As hard as those tags are to get, I might pass that guy on the last day and go without getting a buck.  When I've been on those hunts, it hasn't been hard to find a legal buck.  If I were going to settle, I'd be just as happy shooting a small buck on the last day.

This is my plan, and having a blast.
Iím not seeing the quantity of bigger bucks like I thought I would, but Iím also not seeing a gigantic pumpkin patch.

Part of the fun is the quality of the hunt.  You know the big one is there, rutting, and may turn up at any moment.  Most hunts aren't like that.

I've never killed a decent, classic 4pt. Pretty sure he would be toast!

Me either...Ö.but this is prolly my last chance at a quality permit that I can put the effort needed into it (getting older sucks) So holding out for better for now. Starting the 18th he is a shooter.

THIS quote sums it up for me!! I've hunted all or some part of 11 of the last 13 days, and I have the remainder of the season off (open through 11/20) for Mission rifle. I haven't seen a buck that has even excited me YET, but Istill have hope! Plus, I've been having an absolute BLAST (I should be after 22 years of applying)! Leaving early and getting home late, planning my next day, etc. I sure wish the weather would cooperate more, but it's still all good. IF I'm down to the last day I might shoot a meat buck close to town late in the afternoon, but it'll be a dink! I won't even shoot a "decent" buck, it'll be a dumb one that will probably get hit by a car anyhow. That's my theory anyway, why kill a buck that's survived 3.5-4.5 years just to settle for a "decent" one that would be tossed on the horn pile on the porch at my place, when I can shoot a tender one to eat?

I'm not judging, "To each their own". Have a great rest of your hunt fellas!
