You don't have to stretch your own tape .The so called tape measure has already been stretched on the genetics and trophy quality that's why they,re more expensive to start with. It costs more to hunt big animals in the prime areas. You wouldn't pay more if you thought the size would be the same as any other hunt. We're paying more for experience and with that experience we hope that a big critter is coming home with us, not just average. Like I said it's a back door approach to having to pay more for exceptional animals. Outfitters, State game departments and hunters have all contributed to this.By that logic any paid hunt is paid by the inch. Only free hunts aren't paid by the inch. Even then I guess you're paying by the inch if you use upgraded bullets as they cost more.
So.... The only true way to have a hunt where you don't pay by the inch is a DIY hunt, using Hornady ammunition.
In all seriousness, I get what you're saying, but I just don't agree with it as there is no tape measure involved in paying more for an area as opposed to an animal.
