Cull Buck?

It has been proven - over and over and over again - that culling is of zero value.

Shoot him or not (if you even see him while hunting) but removing him from the herd will harm nor benefit the area herd in any way.

Most of the “culls” that are shot are simply excuses.

Definitely not trying to just put him down. That is whole reason behind me asking for advice. I have really good genetics on this property. He is just the odd ball. Here is one of my rising stars. Too me he is way too young to be carrying this kind of head gear. Can’t wait to see what he will be in 4 years.

If you wouldn’t shoot him for any other reason, let him pass. You never know what he’ll end up being with a frame like that.
 
If he shows up and you want to shoot him, then shoot him. Chances are, you don't have enough property to influence the genetics of a herd anyways.

Until he's 4.5 years old, nobody can predict what he will or won't be.... Period.

With those unique and easily identifiable antler traits, give him a fitting name and enjoy watching that young deer grow up. You never know, he may become the biggest buck of your lifetime!

Gunner - I hope that joker turns into the next BC for ya!

I am genuinely jealous of the folks with great genetics - over in my corner of SC, they top out at 140 or so.

That ain’t quite true, however.... for my leased properties in Illinois.
