I held pretty high standards for myself last year and passed on deer around his size, but I'm thinkin if he shows himself in velvet, I may stick him. Tag soup is bitter after the 2nd year. He might make 120 but probably closer to 115".




He's dang near identical to a buck I found dead last year that was 3.5 (scored 113) although this year's 8 looks as if he may have a smaller body. I'll need more pics to tell.


I'm also hunting a buddy's farm in Muhlenburg Co, and he's getting some pretty good bucks on camera. It all depends on if he lets me buck hunt there this fall.

I think the larger buck in your 1st pic is closer to 110-112 than 115.

Yeah he might go 115 gross... i got one 112 gross similar in size. I'd kill him for sure... thankfully we got a 3 buck limit and you can still kill another if a 140 walks by. It's easy to say you'd pass him when you see pics, but when he is under your stand, it's a different story.

oh dang! did not look at the OP. \:D Sorry infoman! Yeah in KY I'd let him walk, except maybe for the tag soup factor.

No worries. It's a whole different (and frustrating) ball game up here. Compared to what I grew up seeing in Hawkins Co, this buck is a giant. And I don't take that for granted.

After seeing all the other bucks you get pics of up there, I think I would let that one walk.
