Taking over the world
« on: December 17, 2016, 10:43:02 AM »
Another nice two point.  Some of you think they are taking over the world.   This ones perfectly legal, but apparently not worth anyones bullet, or just smarter than you are.    ;)

I would let him grow for a couple years before taking him. Can't shoot wall hangers if you take the little ones. Great picture though .Watched this Black tail grow up for a couple years before I took him and yes a true black tail west of  I-5

Looks mature to me...but that really does not factor in with my family. We are more of a legal buck kind of group. Very nice photo Bone.

Great Photo! I think he looks mature enough that he should have more points, hopefully someone will shoot him next season and get him out of the gene pool!  :twocents:

I'd shoot that buck just about anywhere I was hunting. Huge 2's are pretty cool in my opinion.

Looks tasty to me, and my wife doesn't want any more shoulder mounts.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

That buck is not getting any bigger.  He'll live out his life as a giant 2 point I'd wager.

Exactly.

All the more reason someone should cull him and get rid of those crummy genetics.

I guess I just won't give up my tag on a two point, so have at it guys shoot up all them two pointers with eye guards. And I will stick to putting my tag on the bigger bucks. I would pass him up on the morning of the last day of my hunt. You can't shoot a 4 point if you settle for 2 pointers. First buck or 2nd tag buck sure.
Just my opinion. Great picture !

Why is it considered to be bad genetics? Is it detrimental to the buck, only having two points, or is it only that it doesn't live up to our expectations for a "trophy" buck?

My guess would be the latter.

That is more likely than not fact that that buck is not going to grow any more points than it has in the photo.  I have seen some great two point blacktails in the last few years, and would have taken any of them if I could have right-time, right-placed them.  Never could catch them where I had access when I had the tag and the season was open.

:yeah:

Sub-par in the quality antler department. At least that's what the hunting world has determined to be low quality genetics.

I personally think a giant two point is more interesting and unique than a decent 4 point.

:yeah: No way do I pass that deer up during late archery. I shoot what is a trophy to me and that guy definitely fits the bill.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

He will die if I see him.  I once held off for 4 days looking for a particularly odd 2-point in MT that I had seen the day before the season opened.  I passed on many bucks too.  The mass on this buck was amazing.  Never did see him again.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....
