I'd let it walk because you never know if he could be the biggest you've ever seen. give him a chance to mature before taking him

Ive passed multiple button bucks this year with my bow. Only reason is because I want them to grow. My first deer everwas a b.b. that I shot during shotgun season, (I thought it was a doe). But yea I'd definitely letthem walk if I saw the buttons. On my property I want to fix the buck to doe ratio, so all buttons live and a lot of does go in the freezer.
