the wide one in the first pics is on the top end of what we have on cam to this point. I have been running cams since August 15th or so. i have some others that are really nice as well but i can tell they are even younger than the top one. for the agreement we set up with the neighbors it is 8 or better and 4.5 or older unless it is an obvious cull which we consider no brow tines at 3.5 as well as spikes at 3.5 no spikes earlier than that. I say coop type situation because it is not official but we sat and all came to an agreement of what we wanted out of the properties since we are all smaller properties us being the largest at 416 then 1 at 130 and one at 145 the 3 neighbor is high fence so we did not discuss with him since his has no relevence. the property across the road has been abandoned for awhile after landowner passed away a couple years ago and left it for the kids and they live out of state and dont do anything with it. taking certain bucks? can you elaberate on that.
Some places set up a point system, like 8 pointers have to score over 120". For many hunters, aging is very tough and isn't an exact science. Even the best of the best get them wrong. You would surprised how many people confuse a 3.5 for a 5.5. The score requirement provides for another spectrum to be added to the equation that would allow people to double check themselves. If there was a buck that was obviously older and would only score 105", he would be considered a management buck or cull, whichever word you prefer.
I am not very familiar with the Live Oak area, but I believe STX owns some land in that area and he has more knowledge and experience than most of us.
I would call the first buck looking away 4.5, the second buck 5.5 and the last buck 3.5.
Pretty good deal that the neighbors are on board. More land that you all can agree on, the better it could be. The reason I was asking some of those questions is that IMO, the harvest would be based on the what the top end can produce, how many bucks you can legally take, and which ones you want to feed and let reach maturity. Not every buck is a great buck at maturity, but no buck can reach its full potential until it is mature. Depending on the number of deer you have, that might not even be an issue.
