You bring up another worthy aspect of the concept of trophy. It is also a measure of something special within us. Often times it has nothing to do with the size of the animals horns or the animal itself. One of my favorite trophies is a whitetail that barely scores 120 but he was my first bow kill. He challenged me for an entire season and when I finally harvested him it represented so much more. I have a 14' brook trout on my wall that is tied into one of the greatest weeks in my life. One of the best parts of being human is that we have the capacity to remember and often trophies are something much more than big dead things hanging on the walls of our caves.When I book a hunt I go with a sense of adventure and hope to weave a nice trophy into a wonderful story that will keep my grandsons jaw slack in wonderment. As for Red Hartebeeste being second rate? Not on your life! I am going in April and only hope I can shoot a top 10 SCI .
