Not concerned about venison, we've still got plenty of jars from last year & we'll probably shoot a couple of does to get the meat-hunting out of the way, so we can hunt for racks. However, a couple of buddies and myself are trying to start our own outdoor company(Racks N Straps Outdoors on facebook, add us.) we do 100% fair chase and we're just a couple good ol' boys trying to have a little extra fun. (Also I hope I'm not violating any like self-promotion rules. Apologies if I have) But it's all free, not like we're making a profit off of it in any way. We were actually planning on taking out a younger hunter and maybe letting them shoot it for their first buck. I don't see anything wrong in getting someone their first rack. Like someone earlier in the comments said: "unless you have 4,000 acres, management is out of the picture".(or something to that effect).
Thanks to everyone for your opinions. You've all been really helpful.
