Back in August, my Dad and I got several pictures of this 7 point buck seen in the left of this shot. He was hanging around one of the feeders and was showing up regularly. All of a sudden, he was gone. We haven't seen him in almost two months. He is a nice looking 7 point and looks to have a fairly high rack. I wanted to get a better look at him from a tree stand, but his disappearing act made me think I may not have the chance. Well, he showed back up!
I'm curious to know what you would do with this buck. Would you take a wait and see approach? Would you take him out of your herd because of possible bad genetics? Would you be like the Downeast Duck Hunter and care less about the rack and fill your freezer? (not that there is anything wrong with that)
Let me know your thoughts on Quality Deer Management. I'm curious as to what different regions of our hunting country think.
