    Default Meat bucks

    So I've been doing the trail camera thing for a few years now. I've come to the conclusion that if a buck has undesirable traits like no brow tines, short tines, etc, that is genetic and he will continue those traits year after year. Of course he will grow larger antlers but they will still be ugly. I'm talking about 2 & 1/2 year old bucks and up. You can't really tell a lot from 1 & 1/2 yr old bucks. If at 2 &1/2 yrs and up and his rack his ugly....fill a tag. I've got a shit ton of 2 & 1/2 yr old 8 points a few 7's, 9's and what not that are gorgeous. I've got a 6 point that would be an 8 but has no brows and short tines. He's 2 & 1/2 and was a 4 point last year with no brows. If I see that joker late season and I got an itchy trigger finger, his ass is gonna be burger!

    I'm not 100% sure but I keep a lot of buck pics year after year and trying to do some comparison, it looks like that same deer. If a 2 & 1/2 yet old buck has a tight high rack, he will always be like that. He will not suddenly later in life have wide low rack.

    I'm not talking about messed up racked deer. I believe injuries can cause those abnormalities in certain years that correct themselves. I'm talking about undesirable antler characteristics. I like to at least shoot one buck per year so I can keep my man card. No need in whacking a beautiful up and comer with potential if that monster buck doesn't show. I'm saying if your property is holding a lot of bucks, shoot one of the ones that don't have as much potential. I shoot around three to five deer per year usually only one of them bucks....but like I say, im GONNA kill a buck every year as long as I have a sack between my legs.

    Any man who calls himself a "deer hunter" who lets the sun go down on January 1st without killing a buck all season needs to hit Bruce Jenner up on twitter.

    i've been doing this wrong all this time? I thought my manhood came from different things. I had no idea I had to kill a buck to keep my man card.
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    Just don't eat hummus, get a pedicure, or use an exclamation mark and you can keep your man card...

    Life must be tough when you have to justify every deer you shoot.
