Yes Sir, shoot him. Unless you have been seeing larger bucks on your property.

We have some better bucks, but this one I've watched for the last 2 years with very little improvement. I'm going to let one of boys shoot him.

Either one of my boys will be ecstatic, to shoot him. I guess he is considered a management buck. Hell, I might shoot him if he gets to brave around me.

why feed a 3 year old 8 point when a 2 year old 10 can be eating what he was?

That assumes you have more 10 point 2 year olds than your property can handle.

When you're sitting around the table eating some great venison, you won't even be thinking about the
age or the rack!
+1 on the feeder.....how the heck do you fill it!

Depends, are you on a lease? Can you shoot that one and then a bigger on if you see it later? On my lease an eight point is considered a "trophy" so my answer would be no, I'd let it walk. Perhaps if I saw it at the end of the season then I might shoot it.

4 year old 8 points are good targets.


Runnin'em down like a dog has always worked best for me.

Make a nice shooter for someone who does not get the opportunity to hunt a lot.

He is mature enough to tell that he won't improve too much more. At least that's my 2cents but anything is possible.....how much improvement have you from 2 yrs ago?

About 3in width and a little more mass, which isn't much to talk about.......His name was pretty boy, he's at the same feeder every year, I thought he would turn out to be a stud but mostly just gained body size. We have protien out year round and the browse and water have been above average so there's really no excuse for him. Most likely he'll be shot before Christmas by one of the kids.
