I've passed on five bucks this season in PA, 2 eights, a six, and 2 fours not legal by PA standards. With the season winding down, I won't be passing on many more.

I haven't even gotten the chance to go out yet this year!!! I've been stuck at college. But when I do go out I probably won't be passing doing to limited hunting opurtunites. I may pass a little spike but even that i can't gurantee. I'm only 19 and i've shot 5 bucks in my life. I've told myself once I get to 10 i'll start passing the 1.5 yrs olds but I dunno we'll see. I've only had 1 montster in shooting range in the 5 years i've hunted and i blew it.

I've passed on more than 15 bucks this year with a bow. 2 of them are 120-130" deer. The funny thing is I've been bow hunting for 6 years and have never killed a buck. I'm only interested in BIG bucks...and does. I'veseen at least one shooter each year and have never been able to close the deal.

I've been passing on alot of small bucks in my area , I have this eight point rule that I won't break.
Everytime I'm in my stand I see deer all the time , I 'm not shooting doe's this close to the rut becauseI want them to lure a big buck in range.
The small bucks all the time are spikes and four pointers , I saw one six pointer with a big body but short tines.
With gun season coming just weeks away I might have to break that eight point rule of mine and settle for what I can get.
