I try and make sure they are atleast 4.5 years old or older, I passed on several 120" to 135" bucks even a couple pushing the 140' mark this year because they werent old enough. I messed up and shot a 3.5 year old 10pt with my shotgun this year. I was pretty bummed thought he was alot bigger than he ended up being. Guess that happens when you only get a few glimpses of them. He ended up scoring 132". I did take out several does this year, all does are fair game to me. Have to get the buck to doe ratio in check.

This season does only for meat and to help thin the herd. No bucks unless he is 4.5 this year. The buck/doe ratio is badly out of kilter in my area this season.....too many bucks(mostly young) were taken out during firearm season.
