    Guys what you think of these deer? These pics came from a little 24 acres i have hunted for 10 years or so. Its a 3 year cut-over now and very very thick, I try to keep 3 100 yard shooting lanes cleared but its a job each year and last year i feel i gave the stand a fair sitting and only seen 2 deer...A basket 8 and a spike...I know that if these deer stray to far they will be killed because of the small area i have permission to hunt....Looks like they have great frames started...What would you guys do?...Dont think i would take them and can only hope they make it.....Bigger 1 is a 7 and smaller 1 is a 8

    My Opinion
    First pic would go either way, bow or rifle, being I never killed one with a bow. Second pic would would have to wait on him for a year. Hard to say that is such a small tract. Thats what I worry about, if you let them walk doesn't mean somebody else will. Good luck!!

    I have meet the other guys and believe me that they would put both of them in the dirt...I have 2 deer mounted from this little tract and both have the same profile as the first pic.

    Small tracts
    I say let him go cause the tract i have is about 20 acres and it's the best tract i have probably.Thats the one the 9pt from other post on here is from.

    Take the first!
    The first one you should take with your bow and let the second one walk.

    Choices??
    If I could get a crack at the first one with my bow I might would let an arrow fly. I would let both pass with rifle though. There is always a chance that a vehicle, another hunter, or disease could take the buck but he will never be a great deer if you kill him when he is a good one JMO. However, to a lot of people both deer would be great deer. Some hunters that may not have killed or ever seen one that big would be ecstatic with a deer like that so it is your choice to make. Either way good luck on whichever you decide.

    Safe around me
    These 2 are safe around me but what i'm really praying for is that the first 1 will be my little girls first buck with her youth 223.....That would be AWESOME

    I don't think GT has to try....I'm proud to say I know him and I know he WILL make it happen. I'm telling you if any of you ever get the chance to sit around the camp fire with Gobblintom it will be something you will never forget!
