Try to find something about the deer that you can record. Something that only this deer has. Then next year look back on your records and see if this deer comes back and how the rack looks then.

It's up to you, it's your property and you can manage it however you'd like. I'm just giving you my take on the situation.

I wish you the best of luck this year. It would seem like you have a nice selection of horns to hunt.

Good Luck!
Yeah, problem is during rut they dont come in during shooting hours so Im just on the edge of their area of operation so to speak I really only have seen does during hunting season on my property. The bucks are there during the spring summer and soon as they start shedding their velvet they pretty much disappear during daylight hours. I get them a lot at night but rarely in the day. There have been at least 8 different bucks that I can distinguish. I still think this might be the one spike I shot a couple seasons back. Ive heard many people say the opposite antler shows the animal had an injury and I would have shot it on the opposite side of the single antler...

Are you putting out corn and salt licks? That may keep them around a little longer. When is the rut out there? Maybe try to feed them heavily to get them to come around after the rut. Easy food to recharge is a good way of getting the big boys to come back.

Good Luck!
