If that's a 6 and legal, I'd plant his butt. I'd rather see a n 8 or 10 by that age.

Its hard to tell from this angle but he is definitely mature and legal so if you want to shoot him. I mean if your hungry, shoot him. If you haven't shot better, shoot him. If you have meat, have shot better, and will see him again... let him grow

That's kinda my philosophy on bucks too. But I'm on a small piece of land and I don't think we have a massive number of deer based on what I've seen so far this year.

If you like him, kill him. He is a nice 8 point and middle-aged from that one angle.

Tough decision. If there are better ones around and he comes in fairly often don't rush it. It's early in the game right now. Wait for the better ones but keep him for your back up plan maybe.

Doesn't look like he's gonna grow much at that age. He's small for his age but looks nice. Drop him. food
