This guy has been coming around pretty regular he looks like he meets AR but it seems close on some other picture. Is this guy a shooter or wait another year. Iíll be hunting on my brothers property and this one of the nicer bucks he has seen on his place.

yep, I agree about him being legal ... how big of a property are you hunting and what location around the state?

Legal to shoot. If it is one of the nicer bucks he has seen that is a tough choice.. he could be a beast in 2 years. But I don't think anyone would giv eyou crap for making the decision to make a legal and ethical kill.

So what you feel is best and keep on doing what you do.

also how big are the surrounding places? I hate to have the mentality of shoot it or someone else will ... but it might be the only legal buck you see if there is a LOT of hunting pressures around you.

Hunting pressure is pretty heavy around there so I do hate to have the mentality of if I donít shoot it the neighbor will but then again if I shoot it then Iím that neighbor

Legal deer, but all the "trophy hunters" will tell you to give him another year.

He has at least a 15 inch spread and is a very nice mature buck. I would have no problem taking him if he showed up.

Definitely legal... personally I would wait. Unless you think he won't make it through this season and your neighbors will take him. Then that would be a hard choice.
