Here are 3 bucks in this picture. Would you shoot any of the two in the back or let them go another year?

I'd give the one on the far right a good look-over, but I might be inclined at first glance to let e'm grow another year... especially given the fact they'll lose a good bit of mass with the shedding of that velvet.

I'd have to say that if I got either one of those fellas with in bow range and the shot presented itself, I'd probably take it.

JMO!

Greg, you just gave that deer to another hunter!

The far two yes, the one on the far right for sure, the one right in front of the camera I think I would pass on until another year or so.

Nope! Nice deer, but not "shooters" for me.

You know what's weird is that the buck on the left in the back i saw a week ago at my lease. Its g 2 looks like it got hit or something because it looks like someone grabbed it and tried to snap it off. The G2 goes about 4 inches up and then is bent straight back down.
