We've never had this problem before, but this year we have two really ugly looking bucks. Take them out before they can do their damage? Or let them go and maybe it's just a fluke? Will they always be jacked up? Is it because of damage while they are in velvet? Let me hear your experiences with ugly bucks.

Good luck enforcing that rule. Each guy on my lease tries to take one cull. First year we were all looking for what we named "Superfreak" on the game cameras. He showed up in front of me, I nailed him and I was proud to take him.

Definitely take em out of the herd. I love deer like that are european mounted. Hang em in a camp house if y’all have one, they also make a way to describe to a new hunter why it is a “cull buck”.

What do you guys think about this one? Look closely at his left side. See the hook by his ear.

I think those odd racks like that are cool. I have a one on my wall. The rule on our lease is a trophy buck and a cull. One of the guys was telling me the other day that he would like to see us take the cull first.

Problem with culling on most places, everyone wants to take the biggest one they can.

I quit the pecker-meausuring contest years ago (mainly 'cause I'd lose).

Oh, I don't think that is why they do it. It is a second buck, so they want the biggest they can find. I have been guilty of it...
