All of them are trophies when they got good story’s and memories behind them!!!!we have a handful of hunters on here.. me being one of them. My grandfather was a HUGE outdoorsman. Grizzly bear rug, moose shoulder mount, countless whitetail mounts, a mule deer mount (i have this one), and a jackalope lol.
We traveled all over to hunt. His last hunt was a moose hunt, and fitting for him, earned him a boone and crockett pin, which he was buried with back in '96.
We hunt for meat, and to help out the farmer to our south, so we didn't get too many 'big-ins'. I was given one of his rifles two years ago prior to the season, and on a whim i took it out hunting that season in a new blind location on our family property, which he also used to hunt on. I was able to drop my biggest buck to date, with his rifle, on that land that year. Last year i didn't see squat but turkeys lol. However i have fun everytime i am in the woods because i spend time with my cousin, his son who has taken up the family tradition of hunting, and my grandma who still lives on the property too.

Waiting on the mount still. He isn't the biggest buck, but it was more of the story behind it that matters to me
