Heck my buddie has not shot one in 2 years beacuse of all the bs we hear at the camp. I am telling you when they name the animals it's time to move. If a guy spends up to what ever 1K or 2K you expect to kill something dont you?
I agree with you 100% and if I dropped that amount of money I would expect to leave with something to show for it too regardless of what they named it, LOL; nor would I feel bad for dowing it, unless of course you entered into an agreement not to shoot a deer under a certain size or name.
As a family we require about the same amount. Last year I ended the season with 4 and I was out by the end of March. Ohio is currently trying to bring the population in check so if they are allowing 6 I am more than happy to help them out.
