He's pretty young to be rutting yet. I would make sure your not in an AR county before you kill him. As young as he is you will get your chance.

He's still got milk on his lips and with those characteristics and palmations needs to be passed for 2-3 yrs. Could turn into a true stud.

As for bucks showing up at night it's pretty typical. Try to determine where they bed and move a stand closer, without bumping them out. You'll have a better chance of seeing a few in daylight.

The pic I am attaching is last season.

Hard to tell if its the same buck. I want to say no the last season looks older.

The AR is 13in at alert

The other problem is I have worked the woods over and have not seen one bed spot not even in the open field

I am about to go scout again.

I also have another feeder up the hill and nothing is co.ing but a lot of tracks near.

Both bucks in that pic appear to be the same age to me, very young 1 yr olds IMO. If you are in an AR County the buck from this year is not going to be legal it appears to me.

The more time you spend in their bedding area the more likely you will continue to push them off of your land. You are leaving a scent trail every place you go also. Let the feeders do the work and your TC do your scouting. The deer will move to the feeders when we get a freeze. The rut will pick the buck activity up also.

I wouldn't chance it. Looks young and has some potential. That is what the AR's are there for, to let bucks like this walk.

Thanks y'all

The ones from last season that spike in bottom left looked older and figured he was just bad genetic.


Thanks again
