All of life is a compromise. I have learned that trying to cover all the bases results in none being properly covered. If I am hunting Cape Bufallo with my .470NE and I see a wonderful Kudu on a far ridge, I will count myself blessed for the encounter and count the Kudu blessed that I am not hunting Kudu with my .300 Why. I don't have to kill every trophy I see to have been blessed by the experience of hunting these animals. There are many 18 and 20 point moose still walking the woods and bogs of northern Newfoundland that were not shot just because of this belief. Some of my most memorable hunts, calling bulls in to distances of 4 yards, seeing two caribou fight for half an hour, watching my kids and grandkids are kids take their first deer, moose it pheasant did not involve any killing on my part. The trip is the destination. The exoerexper is the sum. The kill is anti climatic. Enjoy every moment because your days are numbered .
