6 Days Ago
I've never killed anything based on what it might net me in the contest(s). I don't kill deer based on that, or turkeys based on that. Can't speak for other people though. If the hunter is willing to use their tag on a doe or a jake, I'm guessing it wasn't the contest that made that decision.
I'm not understanding what you mean by hunters getting their panties in a wad. I think that the participant should get some credit for shooting a jake beyond "thanks for the pics". It is still a feat to call in a jake and kill one with a bow.
Not upset, just curious.
