Lol, just provoking thought. I think it’s possible to kill the genes out of an area. It’s what we do as hunters...try and get the most perfect specimen and kill him in his prime. Then we repeat that process over and over. No one wants to kill that 110” 10 point that’s 5.5 years old when they have a 160” 4.5 year old walking around. It’s just not how we work.

What I think is the big hypocrisy in most of the hunting video business is when you hear them say "it's not about the antlers, it's the age, we want to kill a 5.5 or older buck." Then when the 5.5 steps out with a few tines busted off, it's "probably won't shoot him since he's busted up." Well, he's still a mature buck, so what's the issue?

This is what I’m saying. Any issue with the rack and the deer gets a pass. Not everyone is like this, but it’s the drive right now.

I still watch it, but I honestly watch it now more for guys like Mike, Jarid, and the rest of their crew and dislike Winke's portions the most. Watching Winke, for me, gets stale. Food plot, Redneck Blind, nearly every time. It's more fun, for me, to watch guys take chances and get out of their comfort zones to try to get on deer. Winke doesn't seem to do that much, and it's sort of become more "fantasy land" hunting, for me.
