I was watching this video on BHPtv and this hunter by the name if Shawn Misener.  He talks about video taping instead of shooting smaller deer.  It gives you some satisfaction to be able to show your friends the video instead of the spike horns....

Not a bad idea...

I don't video them, but I do try to get their pictures. Getting a camera out of my bag or pocket and getting it to where I can take a picture also serves as pretty good practice for learning to move slow and quiet.

It took a while for my brother and I to convince our old man to let the 3 1/2 year old bucks walk. He's old school and it was just too tempting to shoot them. I almost bought him a real good camera last year to let him take photos instead of shoot them, and he brought it up this year.
One of our friends wanted to get a contest going this year, $5 or $10 to join, and whoever could take a photo of the biggest buck and not shoot him would win the pot. Thought it was a very cool idea.

For everyone who believes in QDM and practices it, this sounds like a great idea.  Obviously not everyone is on the wagon and that's fine...Nothing wrong with that.  But, for those of us that are, great idea!
