When you hunt, take a video camera with you and get him on tape... shoot a doe this year... wait until next year to kill this one.
Intreasting post, but it makes a few assumptions. One, that our lucky hunter gives a hoot about B&C recognition. And two, that this deer will not venture into the sights of another hunter.
I think CA did a great job of expressing the "danger" of holding out for 4.5s in his recent D&DH article. To each his own.
I cannot say what knotter2525 should do, but I hunt 3.5s and am quite happy with that. ILBowhunter, you either have control over a very large hunting area or are extreemly patient. Either way, I envy you.
