    I hunt for time away from my wife
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    Meat hunter for sure, my family goes through 3 a year. It's nice when the meat comes with some nice horns though.

    Meat here. If it happens to have a nice rack then that is a bonus.

    Both but if I don't get the deer I'm after I'll shoot a doe in the late season, I love venison.

    I'm a freezer filler so I tend to take does although once gun season comes in and if I'm behind the curve there isn't a 1.5 year old buck that should feel safe.

    lets be honest here...

    If I don't kill a buck in a particular year, I claim to be a meat hunter.

    Not that this is any surprise, but a nice fat doe tastes a lot better than some old buck. But that old buck looks a heck of a lot nicer on my wall.

    I shot a doe already, 3/4 the meat is gone in a few days. I prefer to shoot a buck next but if a big fat doe tempts me, I'll chop her down with the grim reaper. You know...the ones that hang out under your tree at 12 yards and stand perfectly broadside for like 20 minutes.....THWACK!

    But, I prefer to shoot a buck. To answer your question, I guess I am both cause early in season I don't think about shooting bucks cause I never see them. After about mid October, I get horns on the brain something bad.
