Looking for opinions on this split brow buck, I think he's a 2.5yr old and not quite a 13in inside. Debating on letting him walk but as these are my two largest bucks so far and the wife claimed the fella in the back I'm looking for input from the group.

If he's not 13" then that answers your question. He gets a pass on my place. Too young.

Yep if under 13 and in an AR county you are out of luck either way. Sad thing is some idiot who has no care for the law will prob shoot him if he gets a chance. If he does make it another year I'll be he will be very impressive.

SapperTitan, That's my concern, I have several hunters on nearby properties that will probably take him. I am thinking one more year would make him a stud hopefully he'll make it.

a dead deer adds zero inches - even with the risk I would let him get some age on him - lots of potential

At that age let him walk, Possibly talk to neighbors about letting him walk and pray somone doesnt get trigger happy. Thats my opinion. Maybe you can talk some of them into letting him breed his genetics into the herd for another year or two

If I was a betting man, which I'm not, I would bet that deer is older than 2/2.5 year old and is also greater than 13 inches wide. Any other pictures of him?

Good opportuntity to talk to your neighbor about deer management and the upside of letting younger ones walk.

When in doubt err in favor of the deer and the ranch and let'em walk.

And if you shoot him, then you are the neighbor that shoots the young deer. Don't be that guy.

He looks 3-4, the age bucks do most of their breeding.

Great potential. 2 good reasons to let him get a couple more years on him. up

I'd let him pass but I'd invite his buddy for supper.
