Default shoot or not

I'm in love with this 3 yr old. He is not the biggest buck I have on camera this year,but there is just something about him that does it for me. I've killed bigger bucks, and we practice good qdm. What do ya'll think I know he will look better nexr year but I think he looks good now.

I'll agree with basserman do what makes you happy man. If you let him walk he could be alot bigger next year or he's got the chance to be killed by another hunter in the area.

I'm 39 years old and have taken my fair share of of good bucks. I think in my mind a trophy is what the individual makes it. I'm talking about all the guys who claim never shoo buck before 4 1/2. Not trying to start a argument by any means

Do what I always do. Get it stuck in you rmind that your are NOT going to shoot that deer no matter what! because you know there are monsters in the area and he should grow another year. Then you'll be GUARANTEED to see him opening morning at which point you'll say to yourself. "Well, if I don't shoot him someone else will...and he does look aweful nice standing there broadside"...and WHACK...meat in the freezer. Works everytime LOL.
