I still need to read some of Topoftexas articles he provided a link for, but I'd rather use my tags to kill mature bucks, whether cull or trophy and with minuscule impacts on the population, I'd rather let age take precedence and to this point I'm not finding anything against that concept.

Couldn't agree more. Get as many bucks as you can make it to the 6-8 yr old age class and kill them then. Most people would shouldermount and show off the bucks that are getting "culled" at 2-3yrs old if they would be allowed to get to the 6-8 yr old age class.

Will be talking to our group and hopefully everyone will agree on only taking at least 5.5 bucks with the exception of any 3.5 bucks that are less than 8 points

From some of the stuff I've read, the no brow tines are a genetic trait just like split G2's or something. I think it's a personal preference honestly, but if they are older than 3 1/2 I'd cull em. If you got a bunch of em though, you prolly got a big someplace with no brows.

That's rough right there. It happened to us in Sonora a few years back.

Ahh the old south Texas turn around, you do the right thing and spend your money, and when you finally get to big deer some one sticks you in more ways than one ! Take pride in that you left that place better then you got it

Just by reading this seems like guys that have family long term land or good long term lease in south Texas let them live longer.just my opinion. We hunted a small place in north Texas and we are trying to manage well. Only took one deer this year but would have taken two if we woulda saw "no tines".
