Has anybody been on the fence about taking a buck and passed, then ended up getting the buck the next year??? I'm talking low fence where you were worried the neighbors might get them. Pics would be great, I'm looking to inspire some guys I hunt with to wait for a big boy.

Is that 3.5, 4.5, then 5.5 or plus/minus one year? What a pot belly on that guy this year, looks like he's been drinking too much PBR

I don't have any before photos, but I passed this buck for 2 years and shot it the 3rd. I'm on a small (54 acres) place and my heart sank every time I let it go and watched it jump over the fence..If you can convence them to wait a year or two, the results will be dramatic.

I passed this buck in 2011 the first time I saw him ( deer cam pics only) because of broken bow tine. I took him the next year the 2nd time I saw him. He was not as wide when I took him.

Ill get some pics later but the 173" 18pt I shot this year was a 160" or so 15pt last year, and 145+ 14 pt the year before. And yes we are low fence. It can be done with some discipline and luck. I have a neighbor that shoots everything 130"+ so I'm glad he didn't head that way the past two years.

I got a bunch over the years that we let walk and killed at 4.5 or 5.5. Got a 4.5 yr old rule on the ranch. I would say that we get about 50-60% of the bucks to this age. A few are taken out of the herd that we consider culls, and a few are shot across the fence. Have gotten a few to 5.5 but not many.
