    This is the video I was talking about in my previous post. Finally got it on youtube. Would you take this buck???? I might take him at the end of the season, if I don't see anymore big bucks. What do you think?

    If you're wanting it for meat, I'd take a doe.... And see if a bigger buck comes out later on in the season.

    yeah I really don't wanna take him, actually I really don't wanna take any does early. I wanna keep the bucks around so the does will get to stay, atleast till last couple of days, lol. I'm mainly after the big ones. I don't think I can shoot him being that small. I really want that monster at the end, lol

    Youth hunt yes let a kidd take him. Us growen men can take a hit and let em go. Anyhow in my part of Mo that deer is safe. We have the 4 point or better on one side restriction for reg deer hunting. Lol this morn me and the wife watched a 110 class 8 point get to 50 yards of the bow stand and had 3 bucks chasen 3 does the other 2 were a small 8 point and a big forkhorn. I see all kinds of bucks now. Where in the past I was lucky to see a good spike. The 4 point resrtiction bites for the first 5 years but after that man its wonderful seeing bucks and good bucks @ that.

    Depends on how many mouths you got to feed , how much time to hunt and other variables.... He would walk first weekend ...................

    Let him grow, he's just a kid. Shoot a doe if you need meat.

    I would let him walk. A buck like that is ignorant not dumb. He is un-learned.
    If he is on public land he ain't gonna make it I am afraid. It looks like he has
    good genes if he does make it he will be nice in time.

    My hubby had a couple opportunities to get one about like that and he told me i am ruining him. I said why, He said cause he couldn't shoot the baby and let it go to grow. We either take big does for meat or get them horns and have a bonus freezer full of meat. Not babies allowed

    Here ,I'd shoot a deer like that in a "new york minet",Why? 5 days to fill a tag @49.00 I'd like to let a lil guy walk,But I see fresh meat on the hoof,Plus no doe taking here so its all good.

    That about nails it. With limited time in field and a freezer to fill, that would have been a 30 second video before the hammer fell. With a lot of hunting time, I'd let him go and look for a doe. With a one buck limit, I'd let him walk. With a three buck limit, I'd introduce him to Gravy. There are a lot of variables. Only you can make the call.

    Here in Nebraska, a buck like that would be shot by many hunters, just to get the tag filled. Kinda sad to see a little guy like that be shot. Heck that little guy might have some great genetics to pass around in a couple of years. He's just a youngster, and I would pass him up and so would alot of guys I know. Really want just the meat, then bag a doe. Want a big buck trophy, then gotta let them grow!!

    I voted no!! just think you can get the same amount of lbs. of meat off a big adult doe!!

    our buck to doe ratio is so out of wack, that we can't keep up just shooting does. need more hunters to do the same!! to many horn hunters and those that wack the little guys!!

    It depends I voted no, but Ive taken bigger deer & smaller deer. If thats the biggest deer youve ever taken or seen, shoot him & be proud of your trophy. Then next year wait on 1 bigger. However that being said Never shoot a deeron the last day that you passed on the first day.
