What do we think? Would probably be the biggest deer we've ever taken off of our place.

Thats what I'm thinking. My grandpa wants to let it go another year, but I think it's too old and that letting it go would be a gamble.

Looks young to me. Who cares what people think though. If it's the biggest buck ever off your place, do what you will.

If it's his place i would defer to his wishes. If it's a lease y'all are trying to manage to improve the herd I'd also defer to him. If it's just a least y'all are on it's your call....like him then shoot him....

A lot would depend on your management plan, the size of the place, and pressure from neighboring properties...

My opinion is, if any buck is going to be your biggest buck ever, itís ok to shoot it regardless of age. I donít think you should ever pass up on a personal best, unless you know 100% there are bigger deer on the place. In this case, it sounds like there isnít. Bust him.

This is a family decision. THF shouldn't be involved.
