I picked up my camera yesterday afternoon and had a few pics of two decent bucks. I have seen a buck that is significantly larger than these two on two different occassions, but have been unable to get a picture of him (saw horns while he was in velvet from about 400 yards with my bare eyes...they really stood out against the corn). So with season about to open, and these two smaller bucks coming in, should I hold off a little if they present a shot in hopes of getting the bigger buck, or should I take any good shot presented by any of the deer (there is a huge doe running around too)? If I get one this year, it will be my first with a bow (the place I hunted in LA wasn't real conducive to bowhunting...I tried but just couldn't get it to work out). I am currently living in a one deer limit area of Ohio, and we can only kill one buck per year anyways, no matter what area you're in. If any of you more experienced bowhunters were in this situation, what would you do? Anything I get will be a trophy to me, but would it be worth the risk to hold off in hopes that the big one might show later in the season? I'm gonna try to attach pics of the two smaller bucks...hopefully I can get it to work.
