it would depend if it was legal and ifi had meat in the freezer. but chances are i would shoot. i like deer meat better than horns. now im like horns to so if it was with a doe id take the doe, but otherwise id be having toehead steaks for supper

if it's legal game, don't let what anyone says on here get to you.

You want to let it walk. You want bucks to get as big as possible, so you shouldn't shoot a button buck.

Rem,
Listen, dont let a few of the guys in here mess with you. You legally shot that deer bud! It was your first deer and you should be proud of him. I shot my first deer when I was 15 and she wasnt much to brag about either but you know what? It was my first deer kill and one I will never forget. No need for the poll, you did real good rem.

Mack

man ya'll are harsh. Remington is only 14 years of age and that was his first deer. if someone's 8 year old son or daughter killed that buck ya'll would say different. trophy's are different in each persons eyes and if it's legal...no one on here has a right to criticize him. he was only asking this question because a couple of posers thrashed him on his original thread for shooting this deer.

this sure ain't the way to encourage young hunters.

If it were my first, heck yeah i would proud regardless.....after that i would be a lil chosey, but for a first , it's fine, it's meat in the freezer and to tell ya the truth, it's more meat than i have so far...so congrats.
In the future if you can just let it get as close as possible, do.....bucks heads are flatter than does, they're more rounded, it may or may not help....but it's something to think about.

Early in the season I wouldn't think twice about shooting it. It will give you some meat and then look for the big boys
