The first legal buck that I have in range since it will be my first with a bow. Twenty years of on again off again bow hunting and this is the first year that I am completely dedicated and not just taking the bow for a walk in the woods. A new XT will do that to you I guess.
In the area I’ll be hunting you MUST take a doe before you can shoot a buck, they’re trying to drasticly reduce the herd. OTOH, there have been years I haven’t even seen a deer. So, under those circumstances, if it is legal and doesn’t have spots, its going down. Also, antlers just don’t taste very good so rack size is irrelevant.
Depends on where I hunt…. In one spot, the farmer hunts so I can’t take anything w/ horns, (he said I could shoot a BIG one if it walked by, but I will let any buck walk on that place, I feel like they are his and wouldn’t want to risk losing my hunting spot) and I’ll only shoot mature does anyway off that farm.
If I am on public land, which will probably be the case on opening day, first doe broadside, or decent buck will get shot at (I’ll make that decision when I see him ).
