I have read and heard that every deer taken with archery equipment is a trophy. I imagine that is used to be true but I feel with advances in equipment it no longer is. Don't get me wrong I would never belittle and will always say congrats to first deer, first buck etc but I am not impressed with grown experienced men or women taking a deer. It really is not difficult to shoot just any deer, most of it is being at the right place at the right time. Heck even using the old throwback equipment a deer can be expected every year.
