    What is it with you guy's that hunt, why do you need to stuff this poor dead animal? that you have just killed, then hang it on a wall? I don't get it. The reason I ask, is because my husband hunts and yes I have dead animals hanging on my wall that I absolutley hate!!! He has never given me a good answer. So maybe someone here could explain the trophy thing to me. I personally would rather see them in my backyard then hanging dead on my wall. Why can't you just take a picture of it? Instead of having to mount it.

    I'm looking for good answers here, not just it's a guy thing!

    A trophy is a sign of accomplishment and helps remind people of good times--It usually has much more meaning to the person who did the deed than passers by.

    You should relegate his trophies to a specific room of the house. Anyway he collects them to be able to prove the stories as well as to remember the victory.

    I think game trophies are stupid. Most women hate em and it's expensive as hell
    to have something mounted...What's the point, Proof?..Well heck, a $10 disposable camera will do that.
    IMO, it's nothing more than an ego thing...Ole bubba can stand around with the other bubbas, scratch his nuts, crack a beer and say, "yep I kilt it, aren't I da man"? Then ya have the meek lil accountant that takes a
    guided trip to Alaska an shoots a bear. Has it mounted and on display to prove what a "MAN" he really is!
    That's the way I see it.

    Nahhh...The few I have are from little league baseball and competitive shooting, made from metal and wood.
    Yes, I did hunt and I still fish...But even if I took a "trophy" Trout or Bass, I'd turn it loose, after the photo of course. ;)

    I think trophies are kinda stupid and pretty ugly and I hunt alot. The camera is always a better way to go. As for the act of hunting...It is fucking exciting and damn near impossible to explain to folks who have never done it.
