its different for me gun vs. bow. id still not try to take anything under 130" unless it was an inferior buck or one going downhill. Now with a gun id shoot a higher for sure.:D

Welcome to MWT FullDraw!!!

I don't think I really have a # to put on what is/ or isn't a shooter buck. It's all up to the individual and the situation. I like to shoot large bucks like anyone else but I don't want to get distanced from the fact that it is still deer hunting and thats what I love. I respect all that set a # for themselves as well though.

Last season I shot a 131'' buck w/ archery equip. that meant more to me than some of my larger bucks. It all depends on the situation and what your after. My largest buck w/ a bow is 174'' and if I wait and keep trying to top that I'm afraid I'll be waiting a long time.

GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON!!!

I try to manage my little slice of heaven for mature deer. So I try and keep my harvest criteria of 4 1/2 year old deer which in my neck of the woulds equates to 130 inch plus deer. I actually enjoy the heck out of shooting my fair share of does, a buck is just icing on the cake.

I'll take anything 2 1/2 yrs old or older with my bow. I'm yet to get my first under my belt.

With my gun, I'm looking for 3 1/2 yr old or older.

I'll shoot does all day with either.

Bow = what ever walks in front of me with no spots(need that first one then I can get picky)

rifle =6 points or better (score is a score,where I hunt your lucky the locals didnt kill them when they were one)

judging deer on the hoof is difficult, had ground shrinkage come up

stupid ground shinkage (said like homer):neuspeuter:
