I don't know the details of the situation but this sounds like the same reason I want to have my own land to hunt. On my fathers land we had some really good deer and it took a while to get it to that point. I could never get my father to let some bucks walk until the year before he died. I let some bucks walk and he would shoot them. I would get aggravated about it but in the end it didn't matter at all. If we invited someone to his land to hunt we let them shoot a buck, any buck and it never really hurt the "program" we had in place. I understand a rule was broken but there is nothing now that can be done to bring that deer back to live, grow or reproduce back into the herd so chalk it up as a bad experience, its happened to all of us. Like some have said ,good friends are hard to come by and the loss of 1 buck isn't going to change the demographics of the deer in the herd. I can understand your frustration and disappointment but its a deer vs friend and if you feel that strongly about what happened it becomes a moral decision only you and the land owner can make.

I think it is so easy to get caught up in the "trophy " management. At some point every hunter falls prey to it, at least for a time. Each lease or landowner has to decide within legal limits for themselves. We often lose sight of the fact they are not "our" deer. Deer do not observe property lines, no matter how large the property. What may get a pass on mine, may be a great buck on yours.

We don't need to lose sight of our love for the sport. The joy we get from it. The thrill of the hunt and the chase. The excitement of the harvest. The feeling of sharing that with others. We need to let go of things we can not control, and that goes for all walks of life.

I've you're going to pm a few people the details why not just post it instead of a partial? That said and not knowing all the details, I'd never hide a deer or leave it laying just because it didn't meet legal requirements. If you're going to pull the trigger on it then face the consequences of your actions. If a person is kind enough to let you hunt then you should be kind enough to do as he asks.
