All depends one what kind of are in the area. If that is an example of a trophy deer in the area then take em. Personally, I would do my best to hold of on him. He has a TON of potential. He's only a two year, but has an awesome start. He'll blow up at three and at 4 years old will be an absolute monster!

It would definitely depend on what state I was hunting at the time. Kansas, he would definitely walk. But SW Missouri I would really have to think about it. For the same reasons that everybody else does. Lots of hunters around and for most of them this would probably be the buck of their lifetime. Plus, I've yet to see a buck big enough for me to shoot in Missouri.

I would let this buck walk but wouldn't have a problem with someone who wanted to harvest a deer like this

I'd have to take him. where we hunt the farmers shoot for crop damage all year. they don't care if it's buck or doe. the orchard owners shoot'em and feed them to the migrant workers. we have lots of deer in the area, but the poaching goes on like crazy. I always make sure my two boys 11 and 14 fill their tags before I even think of harvesting anything.

He's a youngin, but I would probably have to say he's a shooter in my book. I don't know when this photo was taken, but I don't like the look of a buck in velvet, so if I were hunting when this buck were in velvet, then I would definitely let him walk. But as for farther into the hunting season, I would shoot him. As others have said, the rack would look nice on the wall and the meat would be tasty. One other point is enjoying the hunt it not about how big the rack is or what gender the deer is. If you want to shoot it, shoot it. If not, then don't. A trophy is in the eye of the beholder. However, I do make an exception. If you are out hunting just to kill, then you need to have an attitude readjustment. Because hunting is called hunting for a reason. Otherwise, we would call it killing and everything we hunters enjoy would be lost. Thats my two cents. Take it or don't. :dealer:
