Yesterday a fellow lease member posted up a pic of the "cull buck" that his son took last season while nobody else was around. This is not an AR county (it's hill country) and we were told to take spikes and "inferior bucks" by the land owner. Is it wrong of me to get a little PO'd about this one? What if I was told at the time it was it had no spread and looked like an antelope?

If you have rules and the rules are not followed then you have the right to be upset. This could be an opportunity to educate him on what a yearling looks like and try to make it a positive. We put up game camera picks at our lease and have a sort of hit list of culls and that seems to help some.

LarryCopper I'm going to intentionally dodge your question. However, speaking for me, I would not have taken that yearling, and if I were with my son or daughter, I would have had them pass on it also.

In his defense it does kind of resemble the antelope look.

I take it the claim for it being inferior was due to no brow tines?

Good looking yearling buck there, should definitely not have been shot. If those are the guidelines, and they were expressed to the group that clearly, then I wouldn't be happy about this harvest.

If the kid is allowed to shoot a deer what would you prefer him to take? The largest Buck on the lease or that one?

In my humble opinion this young buck could have had potential. The guy with the fake mustache should not have taken this deer.

I would bring it up to the lease manager. That's his/her job to deal with situations like this. It's not worth getting involved bit of damn sure want that guy off the lease this year

All kids need to get a first deer. I don't much care if that deer is a 1.5 YO 10 pt or a 6 year old cow horn spike or something in the middle. If they are hunting on a place with a management program in place it should fall within the requirements of a management plan.

Places should have management plans that say kill "inferior" bucks without detailing what constitutes inferior bucks. Assuming everyone agrees on that is just putting a big pile of Dog carp in the middle of the walking trail.

I have hunted with my dad and brother for about 25 years and we still differ on opinions about deer we have until we all sit down and hash it out.
