I've passed up bucks 3 times this size but if they aren't 4.5 I don't shoot. Killed this 4.5 year old we called turkey foot because he had a small drop tine on the end of his right main beam, unfortunately he broke it off, still a nice buck off our place in Hardeman County, he ran out in front of me while I was walking in then after the shot he ran down a 25 foot straight up and down ridge and died at the bottom.

Congratulations!
Sounds like you had your work cut out for you in getting that one out!

Isn't it great to have a history with a particular buck?

I also haven't killed a buck since 2014 --- no regrets,
and plan to enjoy a little more hunting between now and season's end.
Well, actually, not sure how much I'm going to "enjoy" this cold weather.

Congratulations! That's a good buck regardless of what his rack will score. I'd have shot him without hesitation I can promise you. Sounds like he had one last chance for revenge on you and took it with that dive down the 25 foot drop off. :)
