The Trophy buck

What makes a buck a trophy?  The Pope and Young club, Boone and Crockett club, and safari club international all have rules for scoring trophy bucks.  These record books all base those trophies on the measurements of the antlers.  Is that really what makes a trophy?  I have never taken a buck that would score high enough to even make the minimum for any of the record books.  Does that mean none of the bucks I have taken, and consider trophies, are really trophies?  I have always enjoyed my time in the woods hunting, and have many good memories of those many hunts.  I think the greatest trophy I have ever seen is the one in this picture.  This young buck was the first deer for my young brother Jeremy’s first hunt.  I have never been more proud of any deer I have ever taken by myself.
