    yesterday i shot a 4 pointer that had some bad genes or something he was just lookin rough so i thined him from the herd after i shot him i walked back to my truck and saw some new rubs on a few trees now ive seen a few smaller 6 pointers around but i was ok with that but today i went and looked for more rubs and i saw two big deer runnin through the woods so i sprinted to get a closer look and i was dumb founded to see a doe run across the drive way and a giant 8 pointer behind her now im kickin my self thinkin i could have got that one if i would have held out and with gun season coming up i think he will be gone before i get back out there so did i do the right thing and take out the weak deer

    Just IMHO I think you did right if you are managing your herd for good genes. Let the little ones go to grow unless they have bad genes.
