Shooter or not...??

Postby SJohnson » Fri Jul 09, 2010 7:43 am

OK, I am going to try to post new polls and questions everyday, we've been doing it a little on Facebook and people seem interested, so we'll try it here... Let's get some opinions and get the hunting juices flowing... Feel free to makeup your own and post..!

This buck is walking down the trail to your stand. Your hunting with your weapon of choice and he is well within that weapons range.... Do you consider him a Shooter, or would you let him walk..?

he does'nt look too old so i might let him walk but a 10 pointer would be nice on the wall as would the meat in the freezer...probably let him walk but shoot him with a camera

I would have to shoot. Only for the simple fact that if i don't i know for a fact that all 4 bordering properties would with no questions asked, hell they shoot spikes and 4 pointers all the time!

If you'd be happy with him then take em but he does appear to be a young buck. Once he looses that velvet I think it will be even more apparent that he needs a couple years.

It depends on the property you are hunting. Some of the properties I hunt they want all deer taken due to crop damage. On other farms we would let him walk.

He is a young buck that needs about three more years to be ready... Let him walk.. If you have that kind of young deer in the area you have other older more mature bucks like his daddy...

Depends what state your in, some states this would be a shooter, In my area and my opinion is he will be a shooter in 3 years.

depends on a few factors, one have i scored a deer at all this year? meat in the freezer first. second if i have meat in the freezer it depends on wich property im on, a few of them have a kill them all stance, and he would die........ LOL now a buck with my bow, in full velvet..... not gonna lie im gonna be tempted as a mofo..... but on the hypathetical that i was on my own property, had meat in the freezer.... he only looks to be hmmm 3ish. id let him walk, love to see what he became in a few years.....
