What do we think? Would probably be the biggest deer we've ever taken off of our place.

Thats what I'm thinking. My grandpa wants to let it go another year, but I think it's too old and that letting it go would be a gamble.

Looks young to me. Who cares what people think though. If it's the biggest buck ever off your place, do what you will.

If it's his place i would defer to his wishes. If it's a lease y'all are trying to manage to improve the herd I'd also defer to him. If it's just a least y'all are on it's your call....like him then shoot him....

A lot would depend on your management plan, the size of the place, and pressure from neighboring properties...

My opinion is, if any buck is going to be your biggest buck ever, itís ok to shoot it regardless of age. I donít think you should ever pass up on a personal best, unless you know 100% there are bigger deer on the place. In this case, it sounds like there isnít. Bust him.

This is a family decision. THF shouldn't be involved.

I wouldn't, if you want meat shoot a Doe. Give him another year, see what he'll do.

He looks about 5 to me.

If grandpa is paying for any of the freight that your not, honor his wishes.

Funny how pictures can change your thinking on a deer's age just by the way they are standing. In picture two he looks older with a sway back, little belly sag and brisket protruding, picture 3 he looks younger back straight, flat belly and no brisket sag.

If it is your grandpa's land, I would do exactly what grandpa says up

Agreed,if low fence, small acreage, few other nice bucks seen in the area you may never see him again! DRT under those circumstances if it was me.

That's easy - honor Grandpa's wishes, regardless of whether he's paying for the lease or owns the land. He's Grandpa! And you have a LOT more years left to hunt than he does.
