Not in the face ;0


I have to wear sunglasses into the woods, because the deer would recognize me, an just surrender with their hooves up.

I think you would have been disappointed with the ground shrink. Maybe 14" hard to tell.

If your place is big enough or high fenced and the neighbors are patient hunters, he'll be better next year.

I'd have waited this late in the season too.

I agree with cole and mr clean. I would have let him go. Seen to many young deer shot at our place by newbies. All i heard was it looked huge in the scope.

Don't people check through binocs before having the gun ready and " he looked huge in the scope" ?. Dang I inspect all aspects of the deer for age not just the headgear.

If you get a chance at him this year you will be glad you passed on him.

Too young... He has great potential and with another couple of years under his belt will be over 150" easily.

Worth waiting for.
I think you would have been upset if you would have ground-checked him.
Shame it is not catch and release.

I do agree with the others in saying if you had to think about it, especially with the buck in the crosshairs, you made the right choice in my opinion. But only you can answer the question that you're asking, you know your goals and what you are hunting for, we all have differences when it comes down to it, and none of our reasons why or why not are wrong, only you hold the answer grasshopper, LoL.

if your first instinct is to reach for your gun, shoot.

If your first instinct is to reach for your binos, its probably too small.
