Thanks for the note, MazPower - I dunno. I'm not hunt up on score. Some of my greatest trophies are not even close to record-book contenders - but it was the place, the folks I was with, and the quality of the hunt that made them memorable. I'm all for inches of antler mass - believe me - but it's not everything. To answer your question, I guess I figure some little measure of restraint might help offset the tidal wave of preoccupation with score. Probably a losing proposition, but I'll take modest over egomania any day.

Why the modesty McKean? You have harvested some dandy bucks. I love your reluctance to score some of them, I don't think I could hold out like that.

Scores aside, it's the challenge and the memory (with family) that count, you've done a great job preserving that.
