Default Hunting for horns or meat debate

I like seeing big racked bucks and everything. Like to kill them. I'm just curious what changed from hunting for meat vs hunting for horns now days. Back in the day horns were tossed to the side. Didn't matter to them.

I'll shoot a cowhorn and not feel bad about it... but any idiot can kill a 1yr old cowhorn. After I have a few for the freezer, I try to kill mature bucks, because it's harder. If I wanted to kill em just to kill em, there wouldn't be any left... hopefully the ole "brown and down" mentality will die out with all these derelict idiots that are out there shooting everything that walks by.

I love killing a big buck, but I also will shoot whatever I wanna put in the freezer. I think most trophy hunters just wanna show off the horns. When I was growing up, we shot deer for meat and didnít care what it was. Kill what you wanna kill and donít worry about what everybody else is doing.

I was wondering the same thing this morning when I let a pair of 8 points and a decent 7 point walk just because I know that there are a lot bigger bucks in the area. Also i have a full freezer, but just a couple of years ago i would have seen if i could have dusted all 3 of them for the hell of it.
