I pass on any buck that's worth letting his rack grow.

Five years ago I passed on smaller bucks because I had seen a real nice ten pointer running around, but ate tag soup! Then never passed on a deer again, with the smallest I have is a six pointer. This year I have the bug again thanks to my cuddeback and have passed on a nice six point and a small eight. Hoping to see this guy.

I usually sit back and wait without taking every buck I see. I like to let the smaller ones that I think have good potential to walk-by so that we can hopefully meet the next year.

I let a nice 8 walk by tonight, but mainly because we have an agreement with the landowner to shoot a doe before taking any bucks. Usually though, I try and hold out for an 8-pointer or larger.

I have passed on a small 8 this year. Last year, I passed on 2 6 points. The reason is that this land has BIG deer that travel to and fro on it. I to am hoping that one of the shooters walks under me if I put in my time...
