Thinking of letting my son shoot his first deer this year. Right now I have a couple of spikes that need to go, but this 6 point just started showing himself. I'm not a deer aging wiz, but I'm guessing this guy is 2.5 or 3 years old.

Question is, would you cull it?

Lack of brow tines would get him on the list for sure. Let your sone take him and build from there.

Thanks, glad to know I was being rational. The lack of brow tines is what got me thinking in the first place.

How old's your son? 'Trying to get a consensus on when to really get serious about getting my grandson out there with a deer rifle. Thanks.

That's a great cull for him, by the way.

That deer is a prime example of what spikes turn into.

He just turned 7 on Saturday. I'm gonna let him shoot the crossbow. We will work on the rifle hunting for next season.

Sons first buck, go for it! But that is a 2 year old all day. If your growing trophies then pass, for the memory then take him!

No trophies out here. This is literally 250 yards off my back porch.

Let your kid shoot it and have fun. Isn't that why we all got into this sport?
