so i got my game camera pics back and there is a very nice 5x5 buck around my stand. bow season starts at the end of the month so should i go after him? or wait til november to go after him? i think my area could have some snow during the rut which could throw off his where abouts... what would you huys reccomend i do?

I've got a VERY similar situation (2 8's and a 10 in my area). I'm going to go after them EARLY.....before any guns are fired......and not overdo it (once or twice a week). I'd also love to catch one still in velvet.....

If these deer are fairly paternable, i would get on them earley but i would be certain to hunt for them only under optimal conditions, right wind and all that. If they are still on their summer pattern, chances of getting them are good, JMO.

alright thanks for the advice. I have my camera out i will check it at the end of this week and then put out once more to see when he is coming by. Then i will stay away from the spot and slam him in the first few days of the season hopefully
