The bucks aren't exactly lining up to eat at my feeder, but there is another spike spending too much time there.

Spent 5 minutes looking at this guy tonight thru the binos. Definitely a split on one side and just a touch of junk on the tip on the other side... so he got to walk.

Too young to take a chance on breaking the rules if the junk was > 1".

I don't believe there is a limit... until the tags run out. They will make an announcement if that happens.

Cool

At 9am this morning I had and oportunity on this guy and I blew it. Buck fever took the best of me. Had him at 20yrs calm and broadside. I was calm until I got to full draw thatís when everything got blurry lol. At least it was a clean miss. Looking back now Iím glad I miss he was young that what I keep telling my self to feel better. I just made this buck super smart. There is a big chance he will make it this year

That's a bummer, but like you said thankful for a clean miss.

He looks familiar, what area you in?

Thanks guys, wasn't the target buck I wanted but he just gave me an opportunity my finger couldn't resist. Plus this was the first time my vision wasn't blurry and heart wasn't pounding so hard...lol. I initially wasn't going to pull the trigger and watched him sizing up a doe he was on. He litterally sat frozen for about 8 minutes 11 yards away from me grunting, scraping the ground and then turned and walked away when I gave one quick bleet and he turned back perfect angle and froze again. I said hmmm, let's try and draw and see if he hears it....He was oblivious and had the pin on the kill shot. I said I'm going and before I know it my arrow launched through perfectly just high of his heart and passed through. I saw him drop 25 yards from me and waited 30 minutes to make sure he was down. What anfriggin blast that was. This was the first time I actually saw the rut first hand. Thanks to y'all for teaching me how to get it done. 3 years to get this boy and worth every moment.
