I guess I have 2 questions.
1) What do you consider a Trophy? Anything shot with a bow? Anything that makes the book? A once in a lifetime animal taken? What is your definition?
2) What do you consider a trophy lease? A lease that has a chance to take 150 to 180 bucks? A lease that people are taking 120's & 130's on a regular basis? What is your definition?
I had a conversation with my lease manager where I stated our lease was not nor will be a trophy lease. He looked at me like I was nuts. I am guessing my standards are too high? I mean yes a trophy to me is taken when I recover an animal. That being said a "trophy" to me is also an animal that is a once in a lifetime like a monster from Canada or something like that. The lease I am on is a great hill country lease, but Im not sure it is a "trophy" lease. Maybe Im nervous that if the term "trophy" keeps getting tossed around that they will start pricing it like a trophy lease.
Thanks for taking the time to read this & helping me set my mind straight.
