    Patterning? Over your food plots? Give me a break. Come on Bubbles. I started hunting in the early '73, and I didn't kill a deer until 1981. It was bucks only where I hunted the first few years. Saw very few deer period, much less a buck.

    Set your corn piles farther away to make you feel better.

    You misunderstood my post. I am not patterning them over my food plots. I said it was like going to the grocery. I get no satisfaction or sense of accomplishment from it but it's meat. I miss scouting through the woods and finding current patterns to get one. But the farm close by is convenient and fills the freezer.

    Do I need a license if I’m just shooting and not hunting?

    I'll clear things up going forward by adding DW to his name.

    Are you saying you don’t use calls, scents, or other artificial methods to entice the animal to alter its natural behavior? Baiting is a legal method of “hunting” in KY and you shouldn’t take away from or degrade this person’s trophy. Drips, grunt calls, bleat calls, urines, mineral licks, and bait fall under the same category. Corn may work better for doe and small bucks than the other lures but they’re all lures. Do you feel like shooting an animal at 500 yards with a high powered rifle is hunting?? If you do, please repeat the question to yourself

    Over corn or not I'm proud as hell of Mr P and all kids for their 1st and every deer and even prouder of you for taking him under your wing and allowing him to experience the hunt and yes I call it a hunt just the same as using a guide for killing an elk, after all in the end a person is just taking the shot right? Sure a person is walking more but the guide is the corn pile. The main thing is he's started and hopefully stays hooked.

    You guys have opened up a can of worms. Is it really wild game if you shoot it over corn or food plot?

    I dont use calls, scents, or mineral licks. Only used food plots for 2 years after not seeing 1 single deer up there 3 years ago. Nor do i use cams.

    I am not taking away from the professors trophy at all. Very happy for him and BG....whatever gets him hooked is great.

    I remember hunting deer for several years without seeing one as well. I had plenty of determination and I loved the challenge. It was always exciting back then to find a big set of tracks. I remember finding my first moderately worn trail around a bench at the top of a mountain, I couldn't sleep for a week because of the anxiety!
