    That’s a dream buck for me. I’m pretty darn new to the game though.

    If this was by me, he'd been shot last year. 🙄

    @Nicholas absolutely! My grandfather and great-grandfather hunted, but I didn’t really grow up with it. Was never against it, but just didn’t get into it. I finally got into it three years ago and it’s a good portion of what I think about now lol.

    I’d say he’s at the point in his antler development where he’ll score the best he’s going to score. Eventually he’ll “probably” start growing kickers “nontypical points” here and there and when getting a net score those points usually end up being deductions instead of beneficial to the overall score. And keep in mind he’s not guaranteed to make it through until next season just because you passed on him this year with dreams of letting him grow one more year. I say if you’d be happy and proud to harvest a buck like that then do just that.

    Shoot or someone else will.

  • He will look as good on the wall as he will on the dinner plate 😉

    I can’t help wondering what’s wrong with the picture just seems chopped somehow. But I wouldn’t pass
