    Nice Buck
    New to the site and new to NC. Hope this reponse goes in the right place. Been splitting time between Pa and Coastal NC, I am learning that the deer are way different. First is the impressive racks being taken in NC. I believe our deer are larger bodied in Pa for sure as we are getting some in the 300lb live weight mark. With that said, looking at this buck, I believe he is 2 1/2. No belly bulge yet (3 1/2) and no sway back (4 1/2). Surely a stud now and oh man what 2 more years will give. You guys get the points (It is hard to fine a >8 point in my area of Pa so a 150 is rare) and your's get the height. My guess on a score is the low 120's now. But potential exists to get him to a 150-160 booner

    I don't know, man
    I would be more inclined to let a 3 1/2 yr old like this one go till next year. What are your neighbors like? Would they pop him at first sight? If not, or if they don't hunt or you have a big enough place, i think you should do like Tomcat1075 and let him blow up. If you watch growing deer.tv, Dr. Grant Woods is famous for saying that a 3 yr. old is, at best, showing 60-70% of his antler potential. At 4 1/2 he is more likely to show 80-90% or more. Let us know what you decide!

    Hey guys
    Hey guys want to tell u I really appreciate ur comments. As to my neighbors they would shot him, so I'm going to if giving a clear shot. I wish I could let him walk but he's a fine buck and would be happy with him. But I'm hopeing to kill the bigger nine I got coming in but hey not going to turn him down either.
