Would you shoot this one?

I'm not trying to start this as a "horn hunter" back 'n fourth thread. I'm a disabled hunter and am not interested in just shooting anything with horns. That being said what do you guys think of these guys? Last year I was fortunate enough to take a very nice 10 point from this parcel I am able to hunt......so the older I get.....the more choose I become? I feel so fortunate to get out 'n hunt!!

I would not. Young bucks, probably bigger ones there. Up to you.

Every day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

Nice buck.

Depends on how much time you have and your goals. I personally would pass up both of those bucks. They appear to be 2.5 year old based on racks and body size.

I probably would. That’s a decent buck for the areas I hunt.

Definitely would be in my freezer. I shoot the first deer that has 3 points on one side.

Back in the 19900s and 2000s I went several years where I tagged out in archery season and then I went a stretch where I got zero chances with the bow. Being a lot older now and not getting around like I used to I am not as choosey as I used to be. I like fresh venison so I would shoot!

I'm older.....more choosey I suppose. I held out last year and got fortunate on the last day of archery and took this one. So.....I'm waffling on "take a horn....or hold out for more." I'm leaning towards hold out.
