Default 4 yr old 6 point. to shoot or not to shoot

I'm reasonably sure this dude is 4. I've watched him the past 2 years. He's always been a 6 point. He seems to have decent survival skills since last year he had silly large horns too, but he's still walkin.

So part of me is getting greedy here and saying lets see how ridiculous this guy can get. The other part of me is saying anyone is going to take a shot at him because "cull" the 6 points

What yall think?

You have already invested 2 years in watching him. May as well give him 1-2 more to see what he'll do.

I'd shoot him now. He may turn into a 7 or 8 next and will not be as special as a big 6.

He's been breading and will keep breading as long as he's alive. His offspring's will have similar traits so if that's what you want let him live.

this whole thread is legit my brain thought process lol.

Probably a lot harder to get on him than I'm thinkin anyway. I think it's going to be a game time decision.

I understand the quandary. Cool deer and could be unbelievable with another year. At four probably going to stay a 6 but you never know. He’s a good breeder too why cull if it depends more on the doe anyhow
