A nice 8-10 in the beginning of season. Towards the end of firearms season, whatever I need to put food on the table. I love the sport, butalso hunt for themeat. I'm not neccessarily after a trophy. But at the beginning of seasonI would probably let a smaller one walk. During regularfirearms season here in IN, you can only take a buck. And are allowed only one per year regardless of equiptment / season.

My stomach dictates what a "shooter buck" is, but my needs, wants and desires for a "trophy wall hanger" are driven by 8 or more, even and symetrical points with width and mass. For a non-typical I'd like to have jagged and ragged trash hanging all over the place.

The answer is easy. Doe for the freezer, buck on the wall. That means you let every buckwalk away if it´s not bigger than the one you already got mounted. You might have another chance next year with the same bucks, but their rack will be bigger ! This pics from my stand could be for the freezer.....!

In GA, anything bigger than I got. My best bowkill is 113+.

In Illinois, I will try to take a buck that I think will net around P&Y Miminums. But if it gets toward the end of my hunt, I may lower my standards.

Overall, the most important thing is to enjoy the hunt and harvest an animal that will be a memorable experience for you, and that can be different for everyone.

My most memorable bucks can be summarized by the Ateam, "I love it when a plan comes together!" Most of you know exactly what I mean.

Wis Bow Hunter I said a buck becasue there has been a lot of tention on here about people shooting big bucks and people shooting little bucks. I wanted everyone to state there opinion about what a shooter is without the arguments.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion for there own land that is what this thread is all about.

For me I take pictures of every deer I kill. They are all trophies even the does.

I don't know either. I guess to be the one who shoots the biggest, oldest, toughest a$$ buck. I am sure it is a status thing more than anything. Bragging rights. Don't get me wrong it would be cool to get a monster someday. But it doesn't matter a whole lot to me. I hunt for the meat mostly and I like to be outdoors. The first buck I killed was only an 8pt. But it weighed around 200lbs dressed. I didn't even get it's head mounted. I did do the antlers. With a kit from WallyWorld.....lol
