I would burn a bow tag on him here at home, that is a great buck for my area of Michigan.

This is in the original post... I know exactly what I will do ;)

My answer is - I would take the 8-pointer without a doubt if provided a quality shot.

When I get home (can't do it at work) I will post my close encounter from last year, along with what roams around my area to see if it sways your testical fortitude and hold out for the big one... To be continued 8-)

I would shoot him without a doubt. I keep trying to improve on what I already have and while I have shot bigger with a gun, I haven't with a bow. I shot two 2.5 year old bucks in 2009, one was a nice 8 point with a lot of potential on private land, the other was a busted up buck that I grunted in on public land. Most people wouldn't have looked at them twice but on both my heart was absolutely racing and thats what I make my decisions on. I will also shoot any buck regardless of age or size that has a unique rack or something way out of the ordinary. A few years back I shot a buck with one horn thats normal but scrubby, the other was growing down his face and was dark brown and had a club on the end.

i would whack that one for sure...i have never harvested a buck yet...i have passed quite a few bucks up that were small...one of them is now a shooter this year and i know where he beds... so i see the benefit of letting them go
