Let him walk. He looks a bit smaller than your one on the wall. Next year you can stick him hopefully and you'll better your biggest. Isn't that what its all about. If you feel safe about no one else taking him, let him grow.

What buck age class are you managing for? If you are managing for 3 1/2 then take him. If it will make you happy then take him. If you are going to look at his mount for the rest of your life and wonder what he would have looked like next year, then don't take him.

Ithink you should make the call if there are bigger bucks in the area and this deer stands a chance of making it to the next season on your property then let him roam for a nother year and you will love him more next year. If he is the best deer you are seeing and this is your only spot to go then stick him.
