Default Is it a shooter?

Hey guys, this is my first post on here. Put a new camera up this past weekend on my family’s land and had this deer on it the next day. What do you guys think?

It's different for everyone. If your managing it for big racks, I'd give him a pass for another year or two. If you've never taken one that big then by all means have at it. There is no wrong decision. Good luck and welcome aboard.

You are the only one who can determine that.

It is important for any hunter is to decide what it is that is being hunted. Only the hunter can make that decision and it can be influenced by many factors. What someone else thinks probably should not be a weighty factor. It is not particularly important whether it is any deer, a doe, a small buck, a large buck, a trophy buck, or a particular animal. If you have not decided before hand what you are hunting you could miss an opportunity in the woods while trying to make up your mind whether or not to shoot.

I'm proud of every deer I shoot. It's completely up to you if you get an opportunity to squeeze the trigger. Don't worry about what everyone else says.

My guess is hes about 2 - 2 1/2 yrs old. And everyone is right a trophy is in the eye of the beholder . That's ur call .. If you have nighbors that hunt then you are as good as any to take him.. If not then I would let him walk . Keep a good food suppliment out for your herd ,keep an eye on him and see what he can blow up into.. Eather way best wishes one way or the other.. let us know how it goes..

I would not fault anybody for taking that deer.

If that is a good buck for your area take him....if that is a buck everybody passes due to what he might become then pass.

If it is your best buck to date then fire away.

It depends on if you want to kill him or not. He has a lot of good potential.
