Shoot or Pass?

From what I can tell this is a legal buck, 3 up in my area. He looks to be really old and definitely on the decline for antler growth. He has been regularly showing up at my one stand location based on trail cam photos and I decided that if he shows up tomorrow, I’m flinging and arrow at him.

He's just a big bodied deer. His antlers are hard to see without zooming in but if I had to guess, hes pushing 200lbs.

Definitely a mature buck and a worthy opponent.

It really only matters what you think. The trophy is in the eye of the beholder. Some want antlers, others meat. As long as it's legal, to each his own.
