I would because he is bigger than the only Buck I have ever shot. Your call based on your standard and goal while hunting.

Im thinking 2.5, his rack is kinda spinly and he prolly dress out around 130 pounds. Great genitics for a young buck, he would be a monster in a year or two.

It's a tough one...

either way next year would be nice to see some mass on him...

if you're managing for big bucks and others will pass on him I'd let him walk... but if you're where every 2.5yo buck is shot, he looks good.

I'd think he's 3.5yo

I'd say 3.5. His belly it flat but that rack is bigger than 2.5.

Default It doesn't matter

The odds are that someone will probably shot it before you see it.

Those trail cam companies should be making more money. They should be supplying paid videos aging deer. for the newbies.

Sorry, that's my old aging attitude.
