Part of a group of thin-tined bucks. Seeing results from two years of protein, including and especially the younger bucks, but genetics is genetics.

That is a fine mature buck, you will be happy if you have the opportunity!

Nice buck. I bet you could find hundreds of guys here that would shoot that buck.

I killed a 6 1/2 yr old 8 point last yr on public land that was as big as he would ever be. He was 17 1/2 wide but only scored 115. Not all deer will grow to be big antlered deer but they can still be trophies in other ways.

Fact.

My 5 x 6 bull elk scored something like 260. I dont even remember the real score. I dont care. I worked my tail off for a week, ground pounding at 9000 feet, on public land. It's a trophy as far as I'm concerned.

If the buck in the pic was on my place, and had been for years, I'd be proud to harvest him.
