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!!

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.

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!

In a heart beat! You can't even make soup from antlers.

Depends on where we are in the season. If it's early no (I've got better ones I'm looking at), if its late season and I've still got a tag, I would.

Steel I too am a 100% disabled vet and deer hunter. My own personal guidelines are if it's is good enough on the last day then it's good enough on the first day. Many years ago I made a promise to myself that I would only kill a deer larger than the last one I killed. Consequently I have not killed many in the past few years. This year I shed my promise of years past and will kill the first legal deer I see as I know this will be my last deer hunt.

I wouldn't hesitate on either of those. But that's me. Everyone has their own choices, and either way is good by me.
