I'm one of those that feel any animal I take with a bow measures up to being a trophy. I've killed a few nice bucks over the years some would laugh at, but they are all trophies to me and that is what counts.
My definition of a "Trophy Lease" is a place that cost more to hunt, than I'm willing to pay. When you grew up hunting for free it is hard to pay the prices being asked today. I do like some of the other folks thoughts that a Trophy Lease is a place to take the kids and grandkids to hunt, I'll buy that 100%! I know teaching my son how to hunt and fish was one of the biggest joys in my life. Now I can't wait to help my grandkids learn when the time comes.
