ten point buck

ok, i hunt on this 40 acre plot of land. and most of it is a huge hill. i've gotten lots of pics of this guy, and hes definately bigger than the 140 class buck i shot last year, but hes young. my neigbor has a couple guys that come down and hunt literaly right next to my proberty, within 60-70yards of my fenceline. if i get a shot at this guy, who thinks i should take it??? and i could use reasons y. i know if they see him he'll very possibly get shot. i don't wanna let him go another year, as in pass him up, if hes just gna git shot by someone else this year. what yall think?i have more pics. i also was commin out the woods this morning and walked up on him at round 25-30 yards, he didn't run. just walked off. he looks real young and mass-lacking. but hes bigger otherwise than the 140. antler wise. not bodysize.

Yea he needs another year or two, but with being on only 40 acres I can see your dilemma with the bordering landowners.

ya. if i was some farmer with like 600 acres i wouldn't think bout it for three years. but i ain't. i'll likely end up findin out if im gna shoot him or not at full draw on him in season if i get the chance. you know?

I say just shoot him. It's meat on the table. That is about the only reason why my family hunts. We grow our own food, and hunt the rest of it. We don't really go to the store. So go ahead and shoot him, you get a good trophy and you get the meat. Don't leave him. If you do then somebody else will shoot him. And you'll end up kicking yourself in the but for not shooting it.

You should pass this deer but obviously its up to you... I pass alot of bucks up every year even though i know my neighbors would shoot them if they wondered onto their ground. I feel like i did my job in proper deer management, if someone else wants to lower their standards and shoot they can but atleast i always know i did my part. Maybe no one will ever see this deer except you and then next year when he is one year older you will get a shot at him when he is a little more mature. If you pull the trigger or release the arrow then you know this deer isnt ever getting any bigger for sure... There are alot of ways to look at it but if you want huge bucks you have to pass deer like this.

Early in the season I would pass but when rifle season nears and I know my neighbors will get him I probably wouldn't.

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
