Re: Brown is down or Let em go so they can grow?
I passed on a 170ish class mule deer buck all season, really a perfect deer and the area is really starting to come back so I wanted to leave him for seed, it's public lands so it took everything I had to pass on him and I had to fight every genetic trait in my body to not just smoke him. He bred a lot of does but he ended up in the back of a truck, guys didn't even care what he was just blew some holes in him and threw him in the back of the truck. Kinda bummed me out but I passed on him to bred not shoot the last day and he made it till the last couple days of the season so my goal was accomplished.
I shot a heavy three point, he should have been a 4 point so I took him out but since it's public lands everyone else passes on them for the 4 or 5 points so maybe I made a small improvement so one day I can take a 200 inch buck in the area!
