The whole industry stems back to bucks sporting big racks. Today nothing about deer hunting does not have at least some small tie back to trophy buck hunting. If you as a hunter watch one TV show you are tied to it. We are talking about a billion + dollar industry. There is no way you are going to find a sin free enviroment with that much money tied to it. Did they get away with it --NO, were they fined ---YES. The law handled it with what they felt was right but this does not mean that outfitters or trophy hunting is bad. Let me also state that I do wish they would have strung the fellons up by the nads. However we all know this is not how our system always works. I think outfitters are great. When Ron and I went to ILL. on our hunt we had a great time. We had great conversation, laughs, met new people, shared stories with fellow hunters, saw awesome deer that we would never see at home, and came back with memories that will last a lifetime. I for one would go on a outfitter hunt every year if money and time permitted. Bottom line is you can't knock it if you have not tried it. There is a feeling you can not discribe when you are in a strange set of woods in an area that you know for a fact that a deer of legend could walk by at any moment. Talk about an adrenilin rush that lasts all day and through your dreams every night while you are in such a location. If you have a problem with the outcome help change the laws but don't knock the outfitter industry or the trophy hunters that drive it as a whole.
