Don't let anything walk unless it's not legal. They all taste the same.


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

Let walk. He is a 3 or maybe 4 year old. Don't know if he will get larger rack as far as width, highth or number of points but he should get heavier both body and antlers with proper nutrition. The one outside the fence is a 1 1/2 year old. If you have taken similar deer let him go. If you would mount him take him. Sounds to me like it isn't a meat thing. He is a fine animal. If your situation is one that there is a high probability that he will survive to another season let him go. If there is an average possibility that he won't survive take him.

Put some growth hormones in with the corn and wait until next year.

I enjoy watching them as much as killing one...

I can set on my back porch and see 15 deer an evening...

See if he'll come to some corn in your hand and kill him with a pocket knife. That's Texan.

Killing for the size of the rack? Or are you killing to fill the freezer?
There is only one answer!

I would shoot that buck and the doe. But here they would be cruising an oak ridge eating acorns smile

If you need a 135 for the wall shoot it. If you want a chance at him next year when he is 150, or after two years when he is over 160, hold off.
It looks to me like you have pinpointed his fall feeding pattern...
