no genes there

i would take him out, say he is 4.5 maybe 5.5. flat head, long snout, spindley rack, thick neck, good size body says he is older buck. but no genetics there, never have big rack, and you don't want those genes spread around any more. be a burger deer.

deer get most of their genetics from mommy and culling deer on non fenced in areas is pointless. i can only shoot one buck with my archery tag and one with my gun. for me he is too small to waste my archery tag on. maybe during gun season he would get it. but he looks old to answer the question.

Maybe if more of you out of staters hunted in NY state...you'd appreciate your deer more...

It's shame you'll shoot a deer only to "weed it out" rather than shoot it for meat, etc... I understand the whole management for genetics and bigger racks but gee whiz...that's not the definition of hunting. I shouldn't judge though...God does his own "weeding out"...
