If you haven't shot or seen anything bigger than he get's it. If you have than let him walk he will be a stud next year.

That's a real good one where I hunt...no way I'm letting him pass. If I was in an area where that was just an avg decent buck...it would probably be different. Good luck.

I would take him for sure. All this practice and preparation there is no way I'd let him walk if he presented a good shot!!!!!

Good luck with whichever route you choose.
I will agree with Bry on this one. Around here (SE Pa.) that buck doesn't get a pass.

Not a chance.

Life (hunting) is much easier when you don't care if a deer lives beyond the next/current season.
Hunt the bucks that exist NOW, don't worry about the ones that may or may not exist NEXT year.

I got to the point that passing on 1.5 yeear olds is a non issue. Passed up my first 2.5 year old 2 seasons ago. Not sure I have progressed to the point that I could pass up a 3.5.
