Short beams and not much spread, but he does have decent mass. Guess it all depends on the hunting pressure in your area and the buck potential. If it were me I would let him go cause I know there's bigger ones around and or I can and do eat more doe's anyway.

If he has reached full potential take him. I would shoot him.

For me, where I hunt, and bucks Iv'e taken in the past, yes I would(archery not gun season). But if you think there is a good chance at a bigger one will come along then wait. Like you posted above, when/if the time comes, you will know. Good Hunting to you.
