Do I Shoot Him Or Not?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I got this picture on tuesday morning. this is the same buck i got my last pic of but obviously you can see him better here. He looks to only be a 4x3 but he is amazingly tall for this area. My question is do i shoot him or not. I dont really shoot bucks that i am not planning on doing a mount of some sort with and while he wouldnt score great I am kind of a sucker for the odd looking deer. Tell me what you all think

Ill come shoot him for you! but remember Ill have to charge you a small fee!

Learch I grew up in the south have killed evrything from 2 inch spikes to
(160 class) 10 pnts....and does.......THEY ALL TASTE THE SAME!

More serious he is tall whats wrong with mounting a tall rack other than you have to put the nail lower on the wall to keep him fron hitting the ceiling? He is what the good lord offered you this year!

ID BUST HIS #$%!

I'm not so sure he'll get bigger. He probably has some misfit genes that produced that rack. I don't think it will ever turn into a typical rack.

+1, I'd eat him and toss the rack in a pile in the corner of the garage.

I am thinking he is around 5 yrs old so i dont know how much bigger he is gonna get. I am thinkin the miss fit gene idea as well, most likely he comes out when i am around and he will be getting a 169.5 wildcat tossed at him pretty hard!! Here is another buck that i am definantly hoping will live for another year or two, i think he shows some decent promise. How old do you all think he is, 3.5yrs????

I think that buck does show some promise. He might even be younger than that, maybe just 2 1/2 years old. Its no more than a guess though with pictures. How big is he compared to the average doe?
