    Not the biggest deer,but thankful none the less for harvesting him.This deer will be dedicated to my sausage for the upcoming year. He came out at 6:40 am at about 80 yards,stopped looked towards my ground blind and gave me the perfect shot. He only ran about 35yards into the palmettos. I couldn't find any blood where I thought he was standing,but I misjudged the location.Once I found "good blood" about 10 feet away from where he was standing,the blood trail was easy to follow.

    Looks like a fantastic working pole for hoisting your deer. I've meant to build one for years.

    Nice job getting this one!

    Great job. Love venison sausage. Just got bacon back from the button buck I took last week.

    A 4 pointer? His thin build suggests he is very young. Each to his own, but I wouldn't take a 4 pointer. I've passed on many. Please let them little guys grow up and procreate unless of course where you hunt there is an abundance of deer. If that's the case, where are you hunting? I want in on that action!

    Im curious how your personal threshold for when you feel it's acceptable to kill a deer is relevant to the OP sharing his success?

    Why not just congratulate him on his success and carry on instead of challenging his actions based on your opinion of what should be shot?

    There was a thread recently on passing young deer and if he was interested in debating those merits he could post there....but since he posted his success separately and didn't ask for input on whether he made the right decision, I'm assuming he isn't.

    Not trying to be a jerk just to be a jerk, but it just gets old that there are so many people ready to jump in and bash others decisions based on personal opinion when opinions are not being solicited.
    (And yes, I realize the hypocrisy of calling out someone for their unsolicited opinion when I in turn gave them my unsolicited opinion)

    Once again, @Nonc-Tobe - congrats on your success.

    P.s. There are some funny looking pants growing out of the ground around your deer, we don't have those here :D. Interesting how different the terrain is across the country while hunting the same critters (well, almost the same. Our WTs here in MT could eat your WTs I think. They are little guys. I have a friend who can't hit a broadside elk, he'd NEVER hit a FL deer. Lol)

    Congrats! Looks tasty and makes me think I'll go ahead and pull a stick of deer bologna out of the freezer.

    That's exactly the type of deer I like to turn into sausage. Nice young 2 YO deer. Don't matter what it is to me. Selective harvesting is what get you big deer. You have to shoot some of the young ones to be able to take the pressure off the big ones to let them grow too.

    Are you making a summer sausage? Or some boudin?

    All comments and opinions should be welcomed since this is a forum. Posting about one's kill is an invitation for comments in return whether the comments are pro or con. OP is excited about killing a young buck. I am not, unless as I suggested if the deer are abundant and killing young bucks is a good thing, then I would do it also.

    Yes, a 4 pointer and yes he was very thin and very tender,as a matter of fact I just fed my family of 4 with some of him tonight. Sorry I didn't reply to your post earlier as I was out hunting a spike buck,Thanks for your concern of the Louisiana deer population

    Congratulations! I didn't harvest any deer this year, but no worries.

    I like that VTR! What caliber?

    Need to go kill you a hog so that deer ain't so lonely in the freezer. You can grind them up together.

    Yep, bacon. The Amish processor takes the venison, mixes it with pork fat, forms it into a slab, smokes it and slices it. Great tasting stuff.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with taking younger deer. Any game legally and ethically taken is something to be proud of. There is obviously not a problem with deer populations in that area or there would be point restrictions on bucks. If someone prefers to hold out for "trophy" animals good for them. That doesn't mean everyone else should be held to their standard or made to feel guilty for taking an animal that doesn't meet their approval. I can appreciate large antlers but I'm a meat hunter first. I've been fortunate enough to have taken animals with very nice racks but I have just as good memories of hunts where I've taken smaller bucks or does.
