Default Another 6 let him go or bring him down? (buck on the left)

This guy on the left is only a 6 point. Can't really see his horns in this pic, but he's got this little nub trying to come up to fork the ends. Wondering what you guys think let him walk or just take him out?

Hard to tell his age. I'm thinking 3.5

I've got a similar one but I think he's a year or two older. have you had a chance to sit and watch him at all. I'm targeting my large 6 due to the fact that I've been observing him during axis hunts in the summer and he's the dominant buck in the bachelor group.

I would say to keep him around. From that picture I dont think he looks to be older than 3.5. If he doesnt amount to much by next year then yeah probably time, but to me it would be worth it to keep him around another year.

I'm kind of thinking the same way. Give him a shot to maybe get another point or 2 next year.

No way that I would let that deer walk! A 3.5 year old deer should have more than 6 pts. I would take him out unless he is at the top end for his age class on your property.

He looks 4 to me. I’d put him on the hit list. Bucks like that make good kid / guest hunter deer.

yeah my main worry about letting him walk is next year he's considerably smarter and harder to get on. Sadly there are 6 point genes thick on my place already. Doubt I can fix it either way.

If your average 3 year old has 8 or more points, he needs to go.

If I was you and thought he was 3, there's my answer. Walk.
