What's your definition of a shooter?

He looks 3 1/2 to me, and I'm always shooting a 3 1/2+ year-old.

He looks mature to me (at least 3.5) so that qualifies as a shooter

Hes nice and it would be hard to pass on him but......IF he was to make it another year he may gain some mass, looks like he is headed in a good direction.
Id probably shoot him though!

I can gurantee you they look alot bigger walking away than they do coming headon. Nice buck but not as big as he looks from behind. Still, if he suits you that's all that matters.

Absolutely, my goal is to shoot one a year with a 15" spread regardless of age. That one makes it.

Looks like about even with the ears , that would be about 16 . If you had to think about it, prob let him walk another year and hope a neighbor or a car doesn,t alter that !

For me, he's close because I'd want to be sure he's mature. I guess I'd have to see a different angle to better guess and maybe see him live and in-person and then decide. I'd hunt him for sure.

considering ive never had the pleasure of shooting a buck of any sort i would probably crap myself if that one walked in front of me .. It would also be a hard to better than a buck like that in my neck of the woods...
