You're hunting an area with decent genetics, 110s-120s with an occasional 130-140 and it's opening and a nice 125", 10pt., 4 yo pops out to the feeder. Do you shut the buck season down there or take a pass and roll the dice? The property you hunt is small and hunting pressure is surrounding you.

passing up deer on opening day will bite you....
I have taken deer opening day and day after 2 of the last 3 seasons. Though I can take 2 bucks, I just watch the rest of the season. I have passed on many nice deer after getting 1 down.

If a nice 125", 10pt., 4 yo walks by my stand and you don't hear a shot it means I'm dead in the stand. Please notify my wife and call the coroner. If it turns out I was just asleep, please shoot me. grin

I hear that a lot, and it still doesn't make a lick of sense.

Depends, if he has the frame, mass and symmetry I like then you bet your rear end im pulling the trigger! If I don't get excited then I'll likely let him walk, you never know when the monster you've never seen is gonna step out.

Have you seen a 140 on camera this year? If so I'd pass but if that ten point is the best you've seen and you want him take him.

Why shoot something small when you have already killed one that size?Shoot a doe and let him age.......

Depends on how much you plan on hunting that season. For me with a million obligations and only a handful of days to hunt each year, it's a no brainer unless one of our guys has a kid looking for his first buck.

Pass. My largest one to date is a 140. So, until something larger comes along, I'm just stacking meat.
