What are the chances. I'd decide if the opportunity arose. Thinking about it right now, I'd shoot and go get the antlers and then mount him, if he was nice enough

I think I am with you Rory! I know you can still mount him with his sheds, andas long as he can still be entered in P&Y and/or B&C, he's gettin it!

Even if he was record class, I would let him walk... I can't dishonor that deer by tagging him with an "antlerless" tag. If hes gonna give me his life and trophy, I at least owe him the honor of being recognized as such...

I don't believe he can be entered once his rack has fallen off.

That's funny stuff right there! Very similiar questions we posted! Although I would definately without a doubtnot shoot the buckin your scenario. Seeing the antlers fall off right within plain sight, knowing I can go back and retrieve them is what makes myscenario to mejustifiable toshoot him. I would however,have a ethical problem shooting two bucks in one seasonif this unlikely loophole were to ever happen!

Walk's regardless If my buck tag Is filled or not.
Very interesting Schultzy! You have me curious, please elaborate!
Even though I watched him shed his antlers, I like them on the head Instead of on the ground. I'd wait and hope like hell he'd show his face next year.
Same here Steve!

It'd be a No brainer for me.

I would lasso him and capture him, then raise him in my basement until the next season. On opening day I would turn him loose with a GPS tracking unit attached to his antlers.

I would count my losses and go get the antlers and go home happy.
