Being serious, what drives many of us to hunt the biggest set of antlers we can find?

I got caught up in this a few years ago, and became almost rabid about it but can't explain what or even why. Nor can I explain why I recently reverted to my youth and could care less about killing a big set of antlers.

Now I want the tastiest venison I can find, and usually would rather kill a hog than a deer because I like the flavor better.

I just wonder what a psychologist might say about the obsession with a deer’s antlers or my lack thereof. psychologist & antlers - Bowhunting forum
