I say always take that shot. You have 3 buck tags and it could have been a big ole boy. Plus, you can always admire the antlers when you want. The venison will turn into a turd and it doesn't taste that good anyway.

Good job bringing him home. I'm really surprised you only pulled 55 pounds of meat from a deer that size, though. You process yourself or pay a butcher?

I do it myself. The 55 was after trimming it all up pretty but that said I admittedly did a crappier job than usual on this guy. I would normally process in my garage at home and take my time and get rib meat etc but I did this guy under the deck of our family river place. Just not an optimal hanging spot and in the dark after a the long drag I was beat and sloppier than normal. If the Northern Neck had a processor within a reasonable drive I'd use it when out that way but I'm not aware of one. If anyone knows a processor in Westmoreland or Richmond County that is decent I'd love to here about them.

bluefish, I understand. Of the 4 deer I've butchered now, it's all been done in my garage in my own time. Easy to be an armchair quarterback when you've got all the time you need...

I hunted outside of Warsaw Saturday and I was shocked at how few shots I heard. I popped a mature doe at 9:45.
