    Why kill a large Musky to mount it

    Just a question, if there are the means these days to save a 50" plus fish from the taxidermist, why do anglers still kill fish that are just going to end up as a wall hanger.

    With replica casting available, I can't see skin mounting as a reason (even if it's legal) to kill such a magnificent creature. More importantly removing a large fish deminishes the reproductive capability of that lake's Musky population. I've got no problem if you want to eat it, but killing for glory is just plain wrong imo.

    just my 2 cents
