You better "Give'em the Blade"!!! I wonder how old he is if this deer is older than 1.5 you need to take him out of the heard!!!!!!! Also you might have a record 4 ptr there!!!! Either way you need to WACK him!!!!
He doesn't look very old from what I can see in pic.Would like to see his face and front part of body though.I would wonder the most if he will never have browtines,this is a BAD genetic trait to pass along.We have a lot of these up here and its a hard trait to eliminate from the gene pool.
Good shot. I would wack him first chance I got though, or at least at him close for next year. I am a fan of multi points over width. I love big brow tines and my experiance is he will never have them, nor his kids. Good wide spread though.
This is a good example of the problems in QDM, this one would walk, but the same age 8 pint would get shot. Good bow practice for you!
TNDEERHUNTER...I would sure try and check hie age also and if he seems over 2 yrs...Take him...two years ago I shot a 6 pointer and the guys were giving me hell
thinking that next year he would be a great one...when we checked his teeth he was old maby five or six...His boone and crockett score after drying was 108 with a 21 inch spread and the brow tines (E1) were only 1.25 and 1.50 inches.
I knew a lot of people would not believe it, so he is mounted on my wall with the others and he has the widest spread.
Any way I am glad I got him out of the herd even if I didn't know his age at the time I got him. :nope-blue:
Well I got a good look at him last night in one of my food plots. I was looking through my spotting scope and he looks to be 4 to 5 years old. He has a grey face and a sagging belly. He was with a nice 10pt eating clover about an hour before dark. My oldest daughter was with me (15 years old)and she said she wanted to take him with her bow. So if she gets the shot I'm going to let her take him. Of course bow season is still a month away and everything can change in a month.I'll keep you all informed.
