I agree

I agree that people need to stop shooting little bucks. This past week I passed up a 7pt (suppose to be an 8 but had a broken brow tine) that would've scored at least 125. He was a 3 1/2 yr old deer. The next day I saw several spikes, 4s, and 6s. Then I saw a 9pt but he would've only gone 100-110. He was a 2 1/2 yr old buck. The following day I saw a different 7pt that wouldve went 120.

I was telling one of my buddies about this and he had the reaction of most people....SHOOT 'EM. I hate this mindset because that is what keeps big bucks from ever forming....if it has horns, shoot they say .... I have passed up several good deer in hopes that more monsters will start manifesting themselves around our property.
