Good for Josh! It's not my style of hunting but if I had his resources and connections, but essentially NO TIME to maintain a hunting property for 9 months out of the year I would probably do the same thing. He also has a young family that he has been packed up and away from for half of the last 9 months so it's probably not a good thing to just pack up and go hunt free range deer hard for days at a time if his family doesn't join him. I'm sure, given THE SAME circumstances, most of us would have been right there with him. Congratulations young man!

I for one dont think it has an ear tag... but if it does... who cares? its still a deer with wild instincts - doesnt mean you can walk up and smack it in the head with a hammer to kill it. Heck, how many cows on your deer lease have tags in their ears, that are used to people, trailers, sale barns... but you cant get within 50 feet of them because they are so wild... but they are domestic. Tag, no tag, HF, LF I dont care - unless its got a collar with a chain attached to a tree, any deer with a bow is a trophy.

Had the fortune of meeting Josh Hamilton in Southlake waiting in line to see Santa last Christmas. We were standing around waiting on pics and I told him I'd seen his pics from shooting at CCR and a good buck he'd shot a few weeks prior. We briefly chatted about hunting, and he said he was about to go on a hunt with his wife and kids. Apparently she had taken a nice buck on the same hunt he was on. It was a low impact chat...I didn't ask for an autograph and got a quick pic of the fiance and kid with him.

I don't care what anyone wants to spout about the deer posted above or what it must have cost to shoot it. Bottom line, he's a good guy and involves his entire family in hunting. He probably lurks here, and I'd hate to think his impression of TBH would be based on the negativity that surrounds threads like this. Deer of a lifetime for most.

Agreed. Most of these guys are like you and I, except for a huge pay check.

It was funny to see some of the Nascar drivers shopping for camo on Saturday. Tony Stewart was one of them.

I got a message a day late that Ryan Newman had shot two deer on Thursday morning, and his team was looking for a place to store them. A quick call to Syracuse would have had them hanging in a cooler, but they were told we couldn't help them a day before I found out.
