Hey guys, so this past Saturdsy I shot my first buck after an 8 year hiatus from deer hunting.I have made it 30 years in the mitten state without taking a deer with horns, and have passed many years on small spikes. I had passed on the same buck I took in my sit a week earlier, but he came in quick, and I couldnt decide to pull the trigger on a small buck that quick. Well after I let up on my bow he waited around and I felt like he actually looked bigger in the body than a little 4 point. So when he walked 20 feet in front of my stand this time and stopped broad side, my desire for venison and excitement to shoot a deer got ahold of me and I took him. It was a perfect shot. The rage broadhead did the trick and knicked his heart and got both lungs. I am truely grateful to have the meat in the freezer for my family, but I cannot shake the guilt for not just taking a doe for meat. The property I hunt on starts getting a lot more hunting pressure when november 15th comes around so I also had a little bit of, "if I dont shoot him, someone is going to" going on in my mind. I dont need a trophy buck or a big mount on my wall, that's not why I'm bummed. It just seems like I added to a problem rather than help fix it. I want to see mature whitetail bucks and I know to see them, you have to let the little ones go. Anyone else feel like this? Did you ever shoot another small buck again? As of right now I cant see myself ever shooting anything without 6 points ever again when I can just take a doe and not lose any sleep over it.
