I'm guessing its private land. If it is, i'd definite let em go no question about it with out a doubt. He's got alot of room to grow. only about 2.5 years old. Remember the magic of the rut. bucks will travel farther. you might have a bigger one come in. plus i'd rather let him grow another 2 years and take him when he becomes a monster. he's got ggood mass and length already.

Let him go if you think he'll make it another year. That is if neighbors don't trigger happy.

That is up to you, and you only. But, if you decide to take him, don't ever complain that there are no big deer in your area.
Good luck, best wishes,
KP

The question I have for you is do you have anything bigger on the wall? If not then I would say he is a good buck to start out with. If you have some racks on the wall then let him go and grow a couple more years. I have 1.5 year old deer with antlers bigger then that but his body looks like a 2.5 year old. It is up to you when you see him.

Have to let him grow. Let him spread those genes around. He will be real nice in a couple years.
