What can I expect ?

What can I expect from this buck this year. I don't know if his base is a indication of a nice rack or not.

Last year there were 2 bucks w/ small mass (4-6 pt.) and 2 big boys that only showed up at 2-3AM on the Bushnell. They had nice mass for my area and sported 10-12 pt. racks.

Any of you have any input? I just don't know...

He will look just fine on the plate lol. I don't think it will have a lot of mass and probably going to be a small 6 - 8pt. I don't remember what your regulars look like so, you might just have to make a call when he walks under you lol. Not every property will hold a monster and so we have to go by what we regularly see on our places and judge each on their own accord. Good luck with them and I hope you can land a good one.

He's just a young buck(1.5 yr. old IMO) but I'm sure you'll have some big boys coming around later. Great pictures though and thanks for sharing.

So what your saying is that the coon are being a NUISANCE and you need a person with a permit to take care of the problem animals huh lol. I think I know a guy that could do that as long as he gets to fish in the lake, talk to the landowners over a weekend, and sit around a good campfire lol.
