Looking good.

My opinion is that by now you can usually tell which buck is worth watching.

I had a small buck come off the bedding area point behind moms as I was coming to work. I took one look at where he was in the antler department and didnt even bother to stop.

Those are monsters! and the guy with the kickers is unreal; any guess at how many inches he will end at (if you saw him last yr)?

He has been 175, 160, 120, and about 75 inches in the years leading up to this. He will be big this year, I just don't know how big.

That's awesome! 8-) Good luck with him and hope to see some kill pics this fall! Unless of course you plan on giving him one more year! ;)
