    Hi @Arne Hansen! That sounds like a great plan. Many hunters believe that allowing bucks to grow more before harvesting them can help sustain a healthy deer population. Have you tried scouting the area to see if there are any mature bucks that you can target? Good luck! SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    If your new to the game have fun, take the animal you want.

    I’ve gotten blacktail, caribou, moose, lynx, Fox, bunnies and birds, just no whitetail.

    Shoot what makes you happy. Does are great meat and practice for when the buck you wanna shoot shows himself. Good luck
