walk last season in hopes of them maturing or putting on a few more inches.

I have/had access to 80 acres and only hunted the east 40. I knew the 40 to the west was about to have new neighbors, also new hunting neighbors a short distance to the east, so the honey hole is shrinking.
Thats alright for I would rather pass on a nice not fully mature buck and hope I see him bigger and badder next year, versus shooting one to say I shot a nice buck. To each their own not knocking anyone who does up

I saw these bucks on multiple occasions over a two week period from about mid Nov. through Dec 5.

Not a big one but got dang near next to the blind



This is a nice main frame 10 with a split brow, saw him many times.





This is a stud young 8 that in 2 or 3 years should be awesome.




Only saw this young Huge Body 8 once when he briefly stepped out by the feeder and the 10 ran him off.


And this big boy with a tall rack but short tines reminds me of what I see a lot of panhandle type bucks.

Wow even though the pic is a little blurry, he looks like a dandy especially for bow hunting up

First saw this buck in 2016 and thought he could be a 2yr old.


Then last year in 2017 I let him walk again as a 3 yr old. I know he made it thru again so interested to see what he looks like this year.


Had this young 5x5 show up in Sept last year and he made the season also. Thinking he could be a 2 yr old, possibly a 3 yr old max.

At 3 years old he had a single drop tine



At 4 years old (last season) he has double drop tines



Gonna be fun to see him this year, is he survives the acorn binge again.

I had tons of 3 year olds last year. Hoping in the next couple of seasons all my patience will pay off.

Not too long ago almost all of these bucks would have been shot. At least the guys I learned to hunt from would have shot them. Amazing how times have changed

I have let 2 good bucks walk in the past several years. Both ended up getting shot by another hunter on our place. Both bucks were nice to look at, but were young and not your large rack type of buck. I watched one buck for 2 years and saw him get bigger the second year and was great to watch. He got shot by another member a few weeks later. Maybe one of these days.....

I can understand neighbors, but lease members killing young buck that should walk?? I think that would really bother me....which is why I lease alone. Costs more but worth it when I think of situations like this.

At least a few of these bucks pictured are probably dead for whatever reason. Risk you take letting them walk. The buck you posted would have me second guessing myself as soon as he walked off.

After the season was over I sat down and looked at TC pics that were current and found over 40 bucks had made it thru the season. I have several right now using the water trough and corn feeder at the house. Lot of bucks moved off early then moved back in. Some bucks moved in and never left. This buck showed up at the house one day late in Sept. and was here the rest of the season. Now comes to the feeder almost everyday. I probably should name him Lucky since in late Dec one morning when I was heading out I found him hung up in the barb wire fence. He must have misjudged his jump and landed on top of the fence. He was hung up with top wire under his flank and both back legs in the 2 second wire. Must have just happened since the ground was not tore up. I blinded him with the ranger lights then crawled under the fence and got his back legs over the top wire. I was worried he had cut his flank and belly up on the wire but he was not hurt since I seen him 2 days later.
Here is last year in first pic and then this year in second pic. He appears to have injured the tip of his right main beam, interested to see if it splits there.

I would agree. I stopped worrying about what other hunters shot years ago. I get it. Who am I to tell someone they can't take a nice buck. Yes, it's not a huge wall hanger in my book but both bucks were nice to look at. I get it. In a perfect would, I would love to let all the smaller bucks walk to get bigger.

Y’all know you can’t let them walk if you never see them in person and only have game cam pics of them at night right? roflmao bolt

I didn't shoot a deer, but I looked at a bunch of young bucks and a couple mature bucks through my scope last year. This 2yo has plenty of potential and he's back this year. I'll pass on him again. Eat my dust Scotty boy. roflmao
