That's the latest shot of him. I don't run my cameras non stop right now just because i get too many freakin pictures to go through. I'll turn them back on this weekend though and see how he's looking next couple of weeks.

Will report back if I get any good ones.

yeah I'm 90% sure he's 4. This will be the 3rd season I've seen him, but when he first started getting my attention I think he was definitely 2 yrs old. I had a real old buck hanging around that ran all the other bucks off except this guy was rollin with some first year bucks.

He's always acted like a big shot I'm starting to realize why.

He looks bigger than he really is in that pic, head awful close to the camera.
Got any pictures of him from another angle?

Do you shoot your other bucks at 4? Or do you wait until they are older?

If you wait until they hit an older age then I'd certainly wait on this buck too.

"Culling" him is going to do absolutely nothing to your herd besides taking his mouth off the browse and feeder. So if you want to see what he can do then by all means let him go.

If you want to kill a huge 6 point then let him live and take the chance that he makes it 2-3 more years.. He could be a true monster...

I think he is an awesome deer but I would let him go and see what he does. Id be hoping he gets bigger but not more points. That would be really cool.

For me it all depends on what are other options to harvest and ho many tags you have. If you have more mature bucks or other cull that need to be taken then I would let him walk, but if I had good bucks that were young I would take hime because he is mature.

Get him out of the gene pool. Had a big six like him about 25 years ago and let him walk for a couple of years and like to have never got rid of that six point gene. Kill him before he breeds anything else.

If you want a bunch of 6 pts running around let him stay vertical. If you goal is to improve your buck herd (defined as # of pts and higher gross score) then somebody needs to cap his arse! Especially if he's a dominant type socially.

All depends on what YOUR goal is for your deer herd.

I don’t know why you wouldn’t shoot him given the opportunity. He’s a cool buck and a cull. If you hunt all year and don’t get a shot it’ll be nature telling you let em grow
