Doesn't look like you have to. Did you have them aged? How many bucks are you allowed there in NY a season?

Ronn, I never had them aged or anything. I usually just look for the first opportunity that presents a good shot. I'm a meat hunter. I was just blessed enough for these deer to give me an opportunity. I was hesitant about posting these only because most of the buck pics on here are huge deer. I'm not too familiar with the NY hunting regs because I live on a small Indian reserve and we are all basically "trusted" by the res. gov't to "do the right thng" and consider herd development/genetics and disease control and everyones pretty good in respect to that.

I think most everyone will agree that there is no reason to hesitate in posting pics of deer you have taken. First, because if you took it then there is zero reason to be ashamed of it, buck, doe, spike, whatever. secondly, those are quite respectable racks. Oh and if those are the first things to come by I wonder what would come by if you held out for the boss of the woods.

I couldn't agree more with Ronn's post. To me a hunter should always enjoy the hunt regardless of the result. I have never been one to put much emphasis on big racks. Trophies come in a lot of sizes. I like to hunt and bring home the meat if there is a decent rack so much the better but I usually won't pass a decent buck to wait for a better one. Maybe at the end of the season with a full freezer but that's about it.

Those are all shooters in my book and I appreciate you posting the pics it helps us get past the summer doldrums. You can only clean and repack the equipment so many times. :)

I will pass a small buck, especially if I know there is a good one in the area, but those in the pics don't qualify as small bucks. that said, it doesn't mean that I'm any less happy for a guy that shoots a spike. If the shooter is happy then I'm happy.

Thanks fellas. I'm always happy just to be in the woods among the wild. It's "natur-ific" (whatever that means).LOL

nice looking racks to me .I also agree that that all deer are trophies,alot of effort goes into bagging a doe,spike as does a "shooter".they all look the same cut up and frozen anyway:yes:

Yea....no reason to be hesitant. Those are nice by anyone's standard. I almost came to Western NY once to hunt. There's a guide service there on the edge of a large lake.
