First year on a new ranch. Already have a close friend on here encouraging me to put a cap in this buck's rear. 'Really torn, 'need to shoot does, etc., etcetera. No brow tines to speak of.

That deer is at least 6 yrs old. All I can say is he is definitely not safe if he travels 210 miles to the SE between now and the first morning of the season. grin

I don’t know who this friend is, but I suggest putting the bullet in his shoulder, not his rear....

First year on a new place, I'd be real selective. Probably let him walk. That's just me. He's nice though.

He is the landowner and it is a 2 buck county with no AR. So he can be more selective on the 2nd buck.

Creek it is a nice buck I am guessing at least 5. It would be a deer management decision if it was me, do you have pictures of better genetics out there if so then take him if you want, if not you might want to pass confused2 Either way good luck this season up

Thanks Stub. 'Just learning the place. Previous owners I think operated a "beer lease" (to steal another phrase from a friend), so I really don't know what's there yet except a lot of pigs and crappy blinds and trash that'll take me a few years to get cleaned up.

Looks like a nice mature deer to me.

I'd bust him and be pleased as punch if it were me. Nothing wrong with an early pay off.

yep, if you like him ... the next couple of weeks you might even get a better idea of what else might be around to help with your decision point

I take culls, unique or big

My fault is does, not that I don’t want to but that the freezer is only so big (and I don’t let outsiders on my places)

My daughter and I hunt, we can eat only so much

Being she is a new hunter, i encourage taking what she fancies

At some point, soon I will need to alter this(she’s 13)

If he fits your criteria, take him and don’t look back

I'm gonna see what happens when and if he walks out. If my heart rate goes up, the crosshairs'll go up. rifle
