The area I hunt has a lot of deer.  I have seen the same forked horn for 3 years now.  He is a big bodied deer but the rack looks like a #2 lead pencil sticking out of his head.  My question is this, should I harvest this animal to get his genes out of the gene pool?  Or let him go and laugh everytime I see him?

I have seen big deer in the area I hunt and see lots of sign so I'm not real sure he gets a chance to breed but would it help to get him out of there and let the biggers ones have it all?

If you are positive he is a 3 yo deer, I would harvest him...

There is no doubt that if this deer is three and still has no development harest him for the sake of the herd and he will still be good eating.  Hopefully you find his daddy also because his bad genes were past down from somebody.
