    So I got a picture of this pretty nice 10 I'm assuming. It's the only picture we have got of him but would you think he's a shooter?

    For me that depends on what other bucks are in the area and what your areas like. I also hate trying to make that decision looking at a night picture of a deer. I make that call when he walks by my stand. I had one similar to that come by my stand earlier this year and I had to think about it. And since I had to think about it, I let him pass

    For me, yes, I would. Where I live and hunt that deer looks 4 or 5. Nearly unkillable for a dip**** like me. LOL.

    I would take a shot given the opportunity. Where i hunt there is lots of pressure and most bucks dont make it to 3yrs old so i take the first legal buck i see

    Yup! I would. Hes a nice deer. I guess depending on where you live and how the surrounding property is managed, maybe not. However if it were me where I hunt. I would be pretty pumped about that buck!

    He would get an arrow from me. Body looks mature like the buck I shot this year but your buck has a bigger rack. If you would be satisfied shooting, take him.

    Considering the amount of weight he has most likely lost I would say he is a easy 4 year old. And I think he is more than a 10 pointer too. SHOOT HIM IN DA FACE!!!!

    Yes I would. If he makes you happy then shoot him. If you second guess yourself when you see him in person its probably best to let him walk.

    I'm always happy to shoot somebody else's deer. So yeah I'd shoot him.
