Boss-hunting entails lower risks and much higher reward potential. I mean, people can still fight one another in safe minigames and get something out of it (like XP rewards), but out in the Wilderness, they're more like "Oh HELL no!" There's not much justification to go into such a high risk area for such little reward. Until Jagex comes up with a way to make the Wilderness have an exponentially higher earning potential that matches the Wilderness's risk factor, there's no point in going out there. If we're forced to go out there for something like a clue scroll, we obviously bring nothing but what we need to complete our task and nothing more. Otherwise, what's the point in risking like 300k-500k worth in gear and supplies every single time you want to go warring? That's one reason why most warring clans these days stick to CWA instead of doing things the old-fashioned way in the Wilderness (although there is also the matter of the toggle to take into account).
Personally, I'd much rather go boss-hunting with my clan than go PKing because not only is the risk factor extremely lower, the chance of making profit is MUCH higher. I mean, a drop that has either a Zamorakian spear, Subjugation robes, or something like the Zamorak hilt far outweigh what you can expect from a trip of PKing. Of course, there IS the matter of the "rush" you get when you're fighting someone else instead of an AI, but that small rush to me isn't worth risking my own stuff. There's also the matter of efficiency these days. Most RS players are hung up around efficiency and PKing not only entails as XP waste (because post-EoC, PvP activities don't reward XP anymore), it also entails high risk for possibly minimal reward.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”
