No doubt, and I'm glad that this is a group where everyone "gets it".
Patriot, I found one thing rather interesting in your OP. You said, "...I've never harvested a really big deer (biggest might be 130 inches)..." It's kind of funny that we do not consider 130" to be big anymore. We get so saturated with "deer porn" that a really great buck does not get the credit it once would have. I mean any legal, ethical kill is a great deer and any time spent hunting is a gift, but a130"is still really special. I think you know what I mean.
I am lucky. I have stumbled into a few really nice bucks (not quite B&C, but in the ballpark). So it is a little easier for me to not apologize when I shoot something smaller. But I hate that we so often feel pressured to do so.
