Iíve had pretty low buck numbers up to this point this season. This is the biggest buck Iíve had on camera since the end of July.

I am pretty solidly set on my opinion that this buck is 4 meaning I will likely pass even with not much else to go after. Just how some years are.

Whatís the green screen have to say?

I agree with your assessment in pictures 1&2 but leaning towards 3 1/2 on the third. Let him breed is my vote. Every one is different but I won’t shoot a buck deer unless he is inferior or I’m putting him on my wall. Just makes the decision easier for me. Good luck sir.

I think your right giving that buck a pass. He's either 3 or 4 and not much of a shooter.

Good news for you is that you probably have a bunch of does and not a super dominant local buck - good chance that it will be a matter of a few weeks before a more dominant buck comes by to check in on things.

This is the hope! Hopefully the rut will bring something around.
