I feel a lot of times it is the mind set that you have on deer hunting.  Mark or Terry Drury said it one time.  We all go thru phases.  It starts with our first deer, moves to brown and down. Then we get into bigger and better - QDMA phase and then If I have something at home hanging on the wall that is bigger than the deer I am looking at I let it walk and enjoy the moment of seeing it.  It's all about choices and how much pressure from your peers give you on harvesting a buck. Strangely enough it also has something to to with testerone and how much of a real man you are.
If you must be somewhere.  Be Out There in the woods.

Hunting more years than I care to count or admit too.

HG said it well. I think most of us know when hunting on properties that we have hunted for a while what a shooter is and isn't. I know when a buck steps out almost instantly if I am going to take him or not. My rule is If I have to think about it let him go.
Hunting, I am not obsessed I am possessed.
