Default Interesting thought?

I saw this on another forum and its a good question. Would you give up a year of life to shoot the next world record whitetail?

A member on the other forum made a good point. For some of the people that said no. Some of them probably smoke, drink, wear no seatbelts, and continue to make unsafe decisions. I thought its interesting to see everyones thoughts. To me there is no right or wrong answer. Except if you have kids you better say no!

If you asked me this before I had kids I would have said yes but now not a chance.

Absolutely not! It's not that important to me. Besides, with that extra year, I may just encounter that buck anyway.

I scuba dive, ride a harley, dont wear my seat belt. so I figure if I kill the next WR Ill stop 2 of the 3 and call it even

but I hunt in FL so I guess itll be the top 3 for years to come.

No way! My kids are already growing up too fast. I would be just as happy with a doe. I'm just excited to hunt. I have debated giving up 4 months to be on the biggest loser though! lol!!!
