Would you shoot or pass until next year?

    We got this buck on Cuddeback last year on some Private Land that we hunt. He only showed up at night. He is impressive for a NC deer to say the least. His left side is amazing, but his right side is missing a G3. It is hard to tell if it is broken off or just not there. Would you shoot him if you had a chance or let him walk until the next year and see if he grows that missing G3 and possibly more?

    That'd be hard man, I guess it depends on if you think the guys around you would shoot him... Otherwise I would let him grow, he's definitely going to gain a lot.

    I was born and raised in NC...if you see that deer you better put him in the truck! Thats a shooter all day long...especially in wake county ;). I might shoot him even here in the midwest. heck of a nice deer.

    He looks like he will be a STUD this year. Hope you see him in the daylight.

    No question...close the deal. If NC is anything like where I have hunted in SC that is a giant buck! Good luck.

    I would defiantly put an arrow through a buck like that in North Carolina! Or any other state for that matter.
