QDMA "let him grow so he can grow." you can always wait for a doe. there is alot more does than bucks. if you hunt for meat you should have no problem shooting doe's. to shoot small bucks and calling it meat hunting is embarrassing to your self and ignorant. please look at the buck to doe ratio in your aira and prove me wrong
Keep in mind, not all areas have 'doe days' the entire season. For example, in VA where I hunt, I get 5 tags and throughout ML and rifle season I only get 3 doe days. That means I have to take 2 bucks. If I'm after meat and horns don't matter, then it's quite feasable that 2 "small" bucks will be shot.

Just as a helpful hint, before you start calling someone out, make sure you have all the facts.

Passing for sure... smile as they walk away on your land and say, see you in 2 years!

once that velvet comes off, you will see how tiny his rack will be as well.

I would pass them both the one with the odd rack looks like it might be his 1st rack if thats the case then he might really be something in 2-4 years. I killed a great buck last year and it's only because i watched him as a goofy messed up racked 2.5 yr. old and passed him. then he cleaned up at 3.5 and at 4.5 he kept the main frame 8 grew splits on his g2's brow tine g3 and his main beam even had a split. Thats when i killed him

Point being GIVE HIM A CHANCE

fact there are states witch have a buck to doe ratio that is off balance with more bucks than does how ever the ozarks are on the border of IL and missouri in witch case there are more does than bucks, so in this case there is no excuse. in either case i beleave that you should let younger deer grow for the health of the herd no mater how many tags there are you will see more deer and of better quality.

Too young and lots of potential there. They'd both walk.

Here with our deer numbers being what they are I would shoot either one if I had a chance to. If we had a better number of deer then I too, most likely would pass on them.
