Default Yes or No?

Would you let him Grow one more year? My partner and I have decided to let him pass. What do you think he scores roughly?

Yes if I knew no one else can hunt him and you have enough land to support that. Other wise no.......

Might score a 100, and yes I would let him walk. That's a decision you need to make because everyone's mantality and expectation is different from one another.

Genetics doesn't appear to be on his side IMO. He looks as if he could gain some mass, but probably never get any wider or longer tines. How old do y'all think he is?

It's not a good shot to judge age by.

That looks to be a fairly large bodied buck with not much of a rack. It reminds me of the 6 pt I shot this year. He was an older buck past his prime.

It's quite possible the buck pictured is an older one.

The only way he is going to get any bigger, is if he can grow while hanging on my wall.
