He has been on another game cam but never on mine. I think he is 4 1/2 but he looks awfully good. His mass is kind of weak compared to the 10 point on my hit list. What do you think? confused2

I would have a hard time not shooting him just on principle....double drop tines+kickers. Unless you have awesome genetics, I would be shocked if he was a 3.5y.o.

If you can let him pass then do so. He's gonna be a monster in 2-3 years.

If not any conservation minded people on the land, then rifle

He is pretty safe where he is. My buddy next to me is the one with the itchy trigger finger. I have already talked to him about using some restraint. bang

Sounds like y'all should make a decision together. If you've talked to him about restraint, and then you whack it, he's gonna be pissed.

He killed a single drop tine buck last year and it was not mature. We had a discussion about that deer after the fact. It is what it is. I have a mature 10 point that is my priority this year. At least I know he is 5 1/2 + years old. rifle This is what the 10 point looked like last year. He is even bigger now.

He has the body of a younger deer. Wait at least one more year, 2 would be better.

Good looking deer. Would be even bigger if he makes it another year, but not sure I would have the restraint depending on what else was running around. Older deer have more meaning to me than antler size, but I haven't shot a deer with a drop tine, much less 2...so I would have a hard time passing for the sake of passing. Lease rules are a different story.

No guarantee that the drops will be there next year.

You be the judge. It's your place and your money. Don't listen to these boys that live in the city and watch those 30 minute hunting shows all night, where all that talk about is letting that big 180 walk and how much bigger he will be next year. If you will look at some of their pencil horned pics on here they should have let those deer live another year or two. Very nice deer. Put a bow stand up and stick him.

If that deer came near me I'd shoot it.

I shot a deer that looked real similar to that one several years ago. Between lease mates and neighbors I didn't think he would make it another season let alone 2. Never regretted my decision. I'm sure there'd be some regret if he wasn't on my wall though.
