I'd be sending my arrow on its way to his lungs. Good luck with it. Don't worry so much about your neighbors. I understand it is tough but do what you want.

Unless I know and have been hunting a bigger one, then I would definately shoot him. That would be my personal biggest deer, and with a bow, would be a definate trophy for me!

Me, shooting without a doubt. It seems that you might just have to wait to decide when he's broadside.

Once I set eyes on him, I would be 100% certain I would arrow him, no questions whatsoever.

Whichever choice you make, base it on what YOU want to do. Dont let your neighbors influence your decision if you want to try to give him another year. Theres no guarantee they are goin to get him if you pass on him. Hes a great deer either way-let us know what your choice is when you make one!!

I personally would let him walk, he is still young and not the size Im looking for yet. Very nice deer and it seems that your management practices have paid off over the years and will continue if your neighbors can keep their itchy trigger fingers at bay.
