"Wyoming is a 24 to 26 inch buc..."

I'm all for shoot the size of buck you want, but I have noticed over the last 15 years the the size of a trophy buck has dropped from 30 inches down to 22 to 26 inches in the Wyoming high country. My observation this year was any buck out to his ears was hitting the dirt at first light.

15 years ago hunters tended to pass on the 26 inch and smaller bucks until later in the season. What has caused the shift to shoot anything that moves mentality?

A good example was day 2 of our hunt. We spotted a 20 inch 4x4 with nice long points and good potential. We spooked him around the hill and bag down he goes on the morning of day 2 to what appeared to be a happy hunter. This buck in a few years would have been a 200 inch typical frame type deer.
