Have to admit it. I've started letting a lot more bucks walk away here lately on public land. Had an encounter this morning in Blackwater with a two year old wide four point. Picked up my bow multiple of times when he was with in twenty yards feeding on acorns. Thought hard about it and decided to let him walk, knowing what's in the area from previous hunts. Figure the only way they will get bigger is by getting older. Also figuring in my mind how many other hunters in the area using the "if its brown its down" theory. Almost like a coin toss on public land though but hopes he makes it through the season along with many others to become a mature full racked buck.
