    He was always more inferior than most of our deer, but he blew up at 5.5. He was even pretty small last year. Not the biggest buck, but he’s come a long way. He’s pretty nice for an8 IMG_7420.JPG IMG_7416.JPG IMG_7411.JPG

    I got a picture of Jax in June. He looks like he would’ve been pretty big this year

    I wouldn’t mind shooting one of them with my bow, but it would be hard because I like watching them age. I’ve watched them since they were 2.5, so I’ve gotten a little attached to them

    Well, to each his own, but I don't get attatched to them. On the two places I own, one 85 ac. and one 217 ac., I've seen them come and go. If he's 3.5 or older, I'll generally take him if I can. Some years I can't get a 3.5 or better in front of me. Small places are like that, it's just reality.

    I hunt another place by invitation where I've let numerous 3.5 and 4.5 year old bucks walk, but it's 16,000 acres. The life expectancy of a buck deer on that place is much longer than most places in ETexas.
