Default Would you have taken him?

This buck filled my bonus bow stamp and ended my bow season.

I was impressed by his massive bases even though he didn't have the big spread.

Now I'm starting to second guess my self as I am all done and rut is still a few weeks away.

My question to others, would you have taken him if it ended your bow season? As he is one of my top 2-3 bucks with a bow, I'll miss rut with a smile.

I definately would have taken him! I don't bowhunt yet, for lack of a bow, but hopefully soon! I personally wouldn't ever pass up a buck of any size, unless I had consistantly been seeing buck, and a spike was in front of me. Even then I'm not sure I would. In my book any buck is a trophy! And he has a unique rack! Great deer!

Any deer with a bow is a prize in itself. To get a buck like that, with a lot of character and everything. That's just a major bonus. What a thick base on it too, congrats!
