Which brings me to a point.Is there any real whitetail hunters out there that dont hunt private land over food plots out of enclosed huts etc,,etc.It realy saddens me to see the real art is lost.Theres still a few great ones ot there,for example the Benoit family out of VT.I have no respect for someone who hunts private land bucks that are corn fattened and no one else has access to,I guess its ok to hunt that way but I would be ashamed to have my pic put in a paper or magazine with one.
the guy with a bunch of 140-150 class bucks shot on public land has ten times more to be proud of than Stan potts has with all his corn fed pets ! Yet guys like Stan get all the fame and ink.Wilderness bucks are the ultimate survivers getting old and wise by eating twigs and mosss,often taking 6-7 yrs to reach their prime espscially in areas where they evade large predators every day(and night) such as wolves, grizzlies, mountain lions etc.In the area I live I cant figure out how they do it when predator counts are through th roof !!!!!!
I dont have any real giants on my wall yet just a bunch of great bucks with even better memories all shot on land that any one of you can come hunt.If there is any other true wilderness public land hunters out there I would love to here from you here and see some of your bucks.
I figure this will raise some hairs but oh well

I love the fact that I get to hunt giant wild bucks that simply have never been seen or captured on film or havnt been filmed more than brad pitt I tried hunting the midwest (wisconson) just wasnt for me.Although it was kinda nice walking in 400 yards to a stand instead of 1 mile in the dark in grizzly country with a stand on your back.
The fact is in the midwest I believe its who has access to the best places will kill the biggest bucks .And as far as the comment on On Your Own Adventures, dude those guys probably walk more in one day than most do in a season.I also hunt elk with a bow and a 20 mile day walking is not at all unheard of and I feel the same way about them thats what started this post.
so if any of you wildreness guys have some great bucks on the wall I was hoping to see some pics please even if they are bucks the farm guys would scoff at.
