Default Take him or Leave him?

I found a few ground scrapes along food plot and put trail cam up. I got a glimpse of this big guy. Take him or leave him. I was told he would go at least 150+....

He's nowhere near 150", but a good representation of a mature midwest buck...take him if you can.

He does look to be mature but I wouldn't call him 150", so taking him depends on what your after.

That is a beautiful buck, and I would take him if given the chance. That buck may push 135, but he is lacking alot of mass. Beautiful deer.

yea hes around 130s if the other side looks the same and as some spread I would guess him to be around a 3 1/2 maybe 4 1/2 he doesnt seem to have the belly and the look of aolder buck around my area

It all depends on how he matches your area and what you are seeing if this will be you biggest buck and you are not seeing huge buck while on stand

Very tough call. That looks like it will be a VERY nice deer next season...if he lives that long.

2-1/2 right now, about 130/135 IMO. Next year @ 3-1/2 I would guess him to go something like 160 and be a thicker deer.

Question to your question. Did you see him last season? (If you think so - are you really sure?) But if you didn't see him last season, do you think he's gonna hang around to be critiqued next year? Or will he even be around next week? Will he be hit by a car?

Always so much question. And when that deer comes by our stands or blinds there's only a limited time window and shot opportunity. Questions that usuallyneed more time tom ponder than allowed at the moment. Oh what to do?!?!?!

The friggin story of our lives! So much to do and not enough time to do it in! If I do this - what will happen?! If I do that - will it work? If I do nothing - is it the right thing? It's like asking her to marry me all over again! ( huh? did I say something? ) So much to contemplate! So much to evaluate!Should I put him on the plate?

Pretty good deerIMO -good enough for Uncleto squeeze a trigger on.
