Default Passed This Buck Tonight.

I left the mosquitos in my stand and stalked within 20 yards on the buck below. Had a great shot, but passed on him. Give him a few more years. There's older and nicer bucks in the area plus I also love to hunt later in October and November in the rut.

You made the right choice Walleye , let'em go to let'em grow thats what I would have done besides he didn't look like he would score very well.

His right side looked better than his left, He has nice brow tines and decent mass for his age. I hope next year or the year after his left side gets better with age. If he makes it passed the gun hunters. [:'(] I try to manage the buck age in this area, but the poachers run through without permission. [:@]

I've heard that statement..I don't agree with it.

Good choice Walleye..with cooler weather yet to come..and the rut off in the distance..you made a solid decision.
