Default You make the call

This buck is a buck I named Idiot. He's a fighter. He doesn't care who he fights. He has most of the bucks in the area buffaloed. He's whipped most of them.

I called him Idiot when he was pawing the dirt and snort wheezing at this buck for about 5 minutes. I thought he was going to get himself killed. They didn't lock up.

He fought this buck for about 5 minutes last Sunday. Whipped him also.

This buck is 6 1/2 this year and got his whupping the other day. He now is afraid for Idiot to even look at him.

All that said, whould you take him out. All this agression is not normal with bucks of the caliber that he's fighting. He looks 4 1/2. I 'm wondering if he's an over the hill buck. With his age at least 4 1/2, his score under 130, and his tendency to fight, risking injury to one of the big deer, would you get him out of the herd?

I know what I'd do

One of the others are going to break a beam or something it sounds like. Sounds like you also think you should take him out. Bad thing for him that he runs the playground.

Film it, I'd buy the DVD. At least it would pay for some of your medical.

Oh yeah, and take him for sure. He is going to injure or break a beam off one of your 'trophies'. You'd be sick if he broke down that 12...

If it were my deer herd I would be inclined to take him out because I would think he will end up breeding more than the bucks of better quality, and he may well hurt some of the bucks I'd rather hang on the wall - like that big wide 12.

haha, he's got some issues with his aggression is what it sounds like to me. kinda like little man syndrome or something. it must be nice to see them bucks fight so often. I personally have never seen a fight in the wild. Also, personally, would take him.

I think he's older, maybe 6.5 or 7.5 and I would kill him no matter his age. I am sure he's breading the does, and I wouldn't want more of his genetics around.

I agree with Kieth, he's older than you think, just like an old man that spends a lot of time in the gym, looks younger than he is. I would have gotten rid of him before I started this thread, then there would have been another paragraph & a LDP. LOL

never been much of a fan of anything being picked on, thats why the doe I shot this year caught an arrow and that buck would probably catch one as well save the fact I am in a one buck county and if those other rascals were near me during hunting light they would be at least drawn on if I could manage to get my string back

I shot a buck named Bull for the same reason. Stocky with a narrow racks....they win the battle literally every time. Those wide bucks....they are at a serious disadvantage. Tines inside the ears puts tines on the opponents skull and into the eyes of his wider foe.

He's got to go....he's going to tear all the pretty boys up Doc.

Shoot him. You have some beautiful deer on your place. I would hate to see a buck as dominant in attitude (with as small a rack as he has) breeding the does instead of the bigger boys breeding the does. Another thing to keep in mind is: if he is that much of a fighter....you run the risk of him breaking the horns of one of your bigger bucks...or...worse....killing one!

Agressive or not compared to the deer we've seen you regularly post I'd say he doesn't stand up to the requirements. At 4+ there's nothing about him that stands out enough to say "keep me I may turn into a hoss next year": short beams and tines and those 4s aren't impressive at all. As many deer as you see noone has to tell you that you should compare him to your other mature deer.

If I was a betting man I might say that he's already hangin in a cooler.

He looks older than 4.5 to me, more like a health 6.5 with an attitude. I sy, he is past his prime or potential for prime and needs to be a management buck for someone. Too risky, letting him injure a deer with greater potential.
Ground check him at the next opportunity.
