Every year when deer season rolls around, I think that most of us say something like "this year I'm not going to shoot unless it's a xxx class buck". How long do you stick to that before you settle for something not quite as big?

Yeah many cases I will see a nice little 3 pointer on the very first morning and say that is a "good eater, but I still have a whole week". Then it almost never fails that that will have been the nicest buck of the week and I would be happy to have him fill my freezer come day 5 or 6.

During rifle last year I let a nice 8 pointer walk opening day. I held out until the end of the first week of December and then packed it in. Can't hunt at night and that's when they were moving. I did have my fun during muzzle though.

Have not been a big standard hunter. But if it's a yearling I'll pass on it. Otherwise I go by the, if it's brown put it down! My family friends love deer sausage smokies so have to have something for the freezer.

I usually hold out until my son tags his. I like having a tag in my pocket while he is still hunting, but there have been a couple of times where I've ended up being the chauffeur and grouse hunter in November while he is still searching for his buck.

I have no problem holding off, last year I ate tag soup. Now when I was younger it was harder.

Now with that being said my goals might be a little lower than some others. My goals also change every year with te bucks that I kill.
