That said, I don't think it excuses it. If you are inferring something that isn't implied, that's at bit of a you problem. WV asks, "When a hunter says he will not shoot a 6-point because it's not up to his standard, yet you were proud of your 4-point that year, then what?" Then nothing, if you ask me (as long as he's not throwing it in your face). He's welcome to his standard, as are you. Have you ever noticed that this is less of a problem among friends?
