I spend a lot of time looking at game cam pics deciding which bucks are on the hit list so I can target them during the season. I also use the pics to give to visitors that might come to sit for some table fare. Interested to hear if others spend as much effort as I do. Here is a video of my daughter this past weekend taking one of my targets. He was very easy to pick out since his ears never stood up and we called him 'floppy'. His rack looked exactly the same last year and he was on last years hit list, but he managed to escape.

Those were two excellent shots! I had to watch the video a couple times to see which deer was shot second. Congrats to your daughter, she seems to be a great shot.

He was a regular right up until season.

I had him picked out for my daughter.

He still comes in about once a week

Shot this guy last Saturday morning. He had the same antler configuration last year and got passed over thinking he had damaged it in the velvet, but it turned out his skull was actually damaged causing the weird antler growth. But even without that droopy side, he would have been a cull.

Lots of neat looking culls. If most of those were where I hunt they would be protected by the 13" antler restriction.

Gonna see what we can do with this one. I'm gonna try to shoot it, but I really don't feel like doing it haha. It's not that I don't enjoy hunting, but I'm going after a buck in Kansas pretty hard right now so I'll see if I feel up to it or not later.

I still don't understand that regulation. Now if they want to protect the very young bucks while allowing hunters to take the more mature / less desirable ones, then alter the restriction to something like... 13" inside spread -or- 20" main beam length. I know it's much harder to judge on the hoof for beginners, but still.... I'm SO glad I'm not in a restricted county.

Both pics taken opening weekend. The big 6 was an 8 last two years but has never been seen on the hoof. He’s at least 6 years old

I was told that this buck did the same thing last year. In velvet his tines (except the brow tines) were fat on the end, just like the beams, and they broke off right away when he rubbed off. They gave him a year to see if he would straighten up.
Indeed, he was very heavy, bases were 5 1/2".

Ya in our county (Denton) we could not kill most of ranchmans culls. On our place we have a few narrow bucks like that that need culling!

On the other hand... without AR's in many of those counties you wouldn't even have the cull bucks to shoot if not for the restrictions. I understand some people had circumstances that were fine before them, but I believe for the overwhelming majority they have been a positive.
