A mature deer, ready to be taken. I dont really like taking young ones that still have a big life in front of them and could have potential. But they all taste good:D

I define a quailty buck as anything 4.5 or older. After all, that deer has made it through 4 gun season as it is and that is something right there. :D

A quality doe is the first one that gives me a shot.

Any deer that a hunter would be happy in harvesting is a quality deer. Myself, it is a 4.5+ year old buck or a big, fat mature doe.

Ever notice where QDMA originated? They got their foothold in some of the poorest parts of the country, as far as quality deer hunting goes. Last I looked, MO ranked pretty high as far as quality deer hunting goes. Doesn't seem like real good math to me.:thinking:

I define it as putting doe meat in my freezer and shooting a buck that is bigger than I have on the wall now. However I am more concerned with the buck being mature.

Your trigger finger...you decide.

Mine is a mature doe or mature buck. 3.5 years old is mature enuf for me. I have held out for 4.5 but I am too greedy of a hunter not to pull the trigger on a good 3.5.

2.5 year olds can equate to a quality deer for lots of people.

One that puts a smile on my face when the trigger is pulled and I see the animal pile up. :wave:

A healthy deer that is part of a healthy herd.
