Trophy Minded: Is Trophy Hunting Hurting Our Sport? | Bowhunting.com Blog I really think trophy hunting is good and bad. Bad in the way that it truly has turned hunting from a fun activity, into a rich man's sport. Good in the fact that the deer seem to be healthier. I actually own land and hunt in Buffalo County, WI, which is supposed to be the big buck capital of the country. It was sickening to see some of my friends that had family farms, get all obsessed with the big buck craze, and the money they could make off of it. They never talked about the hunt, or anything about the journey to get the deer, all they ever talked about was what the deer scored. They pretty much stopped hunting themselves all together, so they could focus on the "guiding" of their clients. I would love to have a trophy on the wall. I do like trophy hunting to a point. However, I also feel that a lot of people take it WAY too far.
