    It’s true that he could be a monster with a few more years, but around here the chance of him living another two years is pretty slim. He would be a dead deer if he came past me and I had the bow in my hands. [=}=]

    I don’t consider myself as big of a trophy hunter as most I am sure. A buck of that caliber with the bow would be my best kill by a long shot. :thumbup

    No I would not take him if I was just starting my management program. I would let him grow and probably never shoot him just to see what the gene pool could potentially get to. Also the deer looks to be maybe 3.5 years old. So if he is just imagine what he will be in three more years granted he has plenty of good feed and water. Just my opinion where I am fortunate enough to hunt that would not be a shooter. Good luck

    Typically I would pass from a treestand. If I made a sneaky stalk on this deer and got in tight for a shot I would take it.

    If you passed on him around here chances are he wouldn’t make it passed gun season. He’d be a live target. :thumbup :thumbup

    It depends on your situation. He looks like he could be a real pig in a couple of years. Are you hunting on your own property? What goes on around this property? Is there trespassing and/or poaching going on? Lots of variables to consider. Is there safe haven on this property where a deer could hide out when pressure get really intense? It’s a tough call, but you have to do what pleases you.
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
