Default shoot or not part 2

here is a buck I cally freaky. We have sheds from last year. I'm sure is a 3 year old this year. I don't like him but my hunting partner likes him. I think we should wait. He has 13 scorable points

I think it all depends on how much hunting pressure this guy sees. If he is only running around during the moonlight hours you probally wont get to many cracks at him. Count each one as a blessing. He looks to be about 3 years maybe 4. I would be shooting! Awesome deer!

I have ton's of pics of this deer at all different times. Our season comes in sept 5. That is just a couple of weeks away. Should get a good crack at hime early. I don't think I want this deer this year at all.l

He looks skinny because it is August. Late October when his neck is swelled up for the rut he will look a lot different.
