How old do you think the bigger one is? Im trying to compare it to the one on my video.

Don't look to me for hunting advise. I'm a noob myself to bowhunting, scouting, aging, calling, etc. I grew up with a rifle in my hand while sitting in a tree. Go boom when you see one. I like to think now that I'm trying to learn how to be a real hunter.

Unless anything bigger comes along, he is on my radar!

Thoughts?

NAAW, too small! :lol:
That's a decent deer Jim, remember-a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, if you can get him, fine, if not and you pass up other opportunities you can always make picture soup! :lol: :lol:
Your call, and GOOD LUCK!
Just curious, what type of broadheads are you using, a NAP Spitfire opened prematurely on me and cost me a buck, went to a fixed blade and missed one #-o , this year I used a Rage Crossbow slipcam and it did the job! They advise that the mechanical's are best on broadside shots and fixed blade seem to work better on quartering shots. From what I have read, the best thing to do with the Spitfires is to put a dental band around the blades to keep them from prematurely opening up on the higher speed crossbows, something good to know and the rest of mine are now banded.

I’m using OCD blind therapy broadheads. No mechanicals for me just yet.

Here is the backside of my target at 30 yards. They do fly like field points.

That's a wicked looking broadhead, I'm not familiar with them and don't recall them being mentioned on archery forums.
Now we need a pic. of how well they performed on your buck!

How often do you shoot that bag with broadheads? That'll ruin it fast.

Not often with the broadheads, I just wanted to test them at 20-30-40 yards to see if they fly like field points

I'm taking off early and going to my bow stand this afternoon. I've been seeing these guys on my cameras but only early mornings and evenings. It's that time of year where they should be coming out during the day.

I think these three are the same deer. Last two for sure.

And here's a different buck, first approaching and then walking under my stand two minutes later.

I'm not even a trophy hunter but it is nice to see that there's decent bucks and I think I'm gonna hold out for one of these two this year or something bigger.

Yesterday evening I had 3 different bucks within 40 yds, but they were off to my right and I'm a right handed shooter, plus there's two big limbs on the tree there that hide me well from that side but limits my shot. The first one wasn't a shooter, and the last one came when it was too dark to shoot anyway. But the second one, the one that came right before dark, was the biggest buck I've ever seen while hunting. It was none of the bucks in the trail cam pictures above. Had a wide rack that came straight out from his head and then the antlers went straight up. A box rack, 8-10 pointer. I grunted at him twice and got him to stop both times but with no room to draw my bow. He never came in and just kept walking by. Then I watched a doe come to almost the same spot and in the dark saw a buck approach and he chased her around the field after dark for about 20 minutes. I didn't climb down until an hour after dark because I knew there were deer there and didn't want to spoil my stand.
I'm not real disappointed. It's my first time bow hunting and I learned a lot about being in that situation with deer around. Plus now I know between my cameras and the one I saw last night that there's at least 4 very decent bucks roaming that area. I'll get many more opportunities to get one.

I have had one coyote and one doe on my cameras in the last 2 weeks. I am hoping patterns change soon.

You didn't get that buck yet Jim? :shock: :P
Never mind, they're all getting killed on the highways here in PA, going fishing there were 5 dead buck laying along the road in about a 10mi stretch and another one got hit near my house, two that got hit were within about 30 yards of each other.
Hunt near an interstate highway, seems like that's where they all are----er were! :lol:
