If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

IMO FWIW, That's a 4.5 year old garbage buck all day long. Gut, neck, slope of back 4.5 all day long. No pro by any means, if he's 3.5, that's the fattest 3.5 I've ever seen and junk up top. Even if he's 3.5 I wouldn't keep feeding him

He's older than you think with just no strong head gear growth. I would have passed him too but would have no issue taking him either depending on size of ranch, management practices and knowing if other bettter size body/antlers bucks do currently exist.

We only have 98 acres, so I doubt we’ll see him next year. We usually see different bucks every couple of months.

Kinda where I’m at-he’d have been in the truck at my place.

I still have two weeks left of buck season, so I’ll be patient if I don’t get a buck, I’ll get a big doe the last two weeks of the month for meat. We have way too many of those.

I say it looks to me like a very old fellow with small rack. His bottom jaw dropped ...sway back...pot belly...sequencing eyes.. however small neck from old age..lol....brisket dropped a little..His nose has dropped...caring a cane..lol ...on social security. But does have a full rump where usually when they get really old they are thin. However... it is possibly I am wrong as this guy maybe unusual....but I feel I am more right than wrong...lol

I see 3.5 at most. Not enough neck for me to make him 4.5.

And as far as letting him go I say it all depends on where it is at and what the situation is with the deer on that ranch. On some places he'd get a dirt nap without a doubt as a cull deer while on others he may be on the better end of that age class. There is not a one size fits all answer with culling.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

3rd game cam pic dated 12/24/2021 over a year ago? if the year date is wrong and it should read 2022 and if that is the same buck, it shows a buck that is at least 4.5 years old..

If it is AR legal, that would make a great first buck for a youngster!

I think he's a good culled. 4.5 and probably not going to get much better.
