You guys that want the cold weather, do you burn firewood? You can have my cold weather!!! Great buck you will never know how big he gets if you take him now. I have gone buckless for 4 years in 2 states and proud of it. Does are plentiful and taste great!!

Good height, could use more mass and width. I would personally let him walk in hopes of another year, but I wouldn’t think down on any person that shot that buck, it’s a nice one.

I’d be so excited for my neighbor/their kids if they snagged him.

Maybe go talk with the shared line neighbor...start a "no shoot buck" deal between you and neighbor...
Could result in some really nice bucks in just 2 or 3 years time...heck..give them steroids...its been proven the antlers genetics aren't just passed by the bucks...the does can be just as important in the breeding as the buck.....

Muddy boots, I’m from Michigan too and we’re I’m at that deer will not walk past any hunter around me without being shot at. I confess, I’m one of them. 30 years of hunting and nothing like that around my cameras or stands.

I feel your pain. All my land is low fenced. My son got mad at me last year because I wouldn’t let him shoot a 160 class 11 point. The deer was probably 2 1/2 years old. I know he survived the season, but I haven’t seen him in a while. I don’t know if he survived the poachers. Here’s a pic of him from last season.

Did you notice the growths on the shoulder of him? Very odd. Not sure what that would be.

Been interesting to see the start of dominance, I just got another buck on camera that has one side broke off already! Nice buck and hope this will let him go another year. One neighbor might let him walk but bet not. The other neighbor has big family that hunts there so its anybody's guess but bet they would drop it in a sec!

It is a shame your neighbors wont get on board with you and implement some type of management program to allow these deer time to mature, it appears there are some good genetics there and should be easy to establish a very good herd of deer in just a few years.
