Can we say deer down? But I'm a deer hunter not a QDMer.

Had one just a little wider than him but not quite as much mass walk by me at 75 yards at Ballard this year.
He got a pass.

I've seen a sack full of 2.5-3.5 year old bucks just like him and 8 pointers scoring up to 125 this year. They all got a pass. Make him 3.5 and a 130+ish and we'll talk.

Shoot. My gut feeling is he is older than he may appear.

Good post username.

Id have to take him out of the gene pool. He looks to have a sway back, pronounced brisket and more than normal gray around the eyes. He is a little on the thin side could be a number of reasons. 4.5

Even though he is a mature deer I would let him walk. I don't have any buck tags left. If I had a tag, I would hate to burn a tag on him, but I would because I think it would be the right thing to do from a management stand piont.

I passed on a 2.5 eight pointer last week that was as wide and had 8" G-2's. I am sure I am wrong in my assumption but without my own set of pics to study and he came by and all I had was that look of him...he would get a pass. I had rather second guess myself after a buck is gone than kick myself in the butt while loading him. This old six I have pics of for some time and he will drop given the chance.
