    Whats the difference between a wild suburban buck or a wild buck in the woods
    next to the subdivision ? Nothing,both are legal to hunt if the law allows.

    Agree. I hunt an area, where I killed my buck in 2017, that is partially subdivided. It was as hard to hunt there as it has been any place I’ve hunted. It’s still a real challenge and the stars have to align. I’ve hunted that same piece for the past 12 years and killed one buck.

    Give me permission to hunt where he’s at. I’ll kill him, put him on the wall, brag about it to all my buddies and finish him off in the skillet. Doesn’t make me any better or worse than any other hunter. Still have to do your homework, be prepared once you get in the stand and all the stars still have to align to put a arrow in him. Just a different way of going about it. Hunters need to quit having a pissing match on how much harder this guy had to hunt compared to this guy or how big this rack is compared to the other one. Have fun, enjoy the outdoors and most importantly be safe!

    I think if you kill a deer thats as domesticated as a house cat maybe there isnt as much of a challenge in it. Like do you have to worry about the wind? No. Do you have to worry about being seen? Not really. And if your scouting includes walking down a sidewalk a couple nights a week and dodging kids on bikes or asking them what time the buck usually comes up to be fed.. yeah. Maybe hunting a sub deer like that is different than a wild buck.
    If that same buck ran off looking for tail and someone unaware killed him even that would be different. But knowingly stalking a sub buck thats tame as a lamb is a little weak sauce.
    Mancard revoked in my book.

    Enlighten us, great white hunter.
    That deer is liable to be 5 miles away next week when he knocks that velvet off, in a sinkhole holler, eatin a persimmon. And if someone happens to cross paths with him in that time, let them know that they should be ashamed for killing an "urban" deer. Maybe those big city deer really are tamer than I can imagine, but I doubt it

    I did mention it would be different if the deer traveled and hunter was unaware. Read the post.

    I read the post. Same deer in either scenario. Same outcome. But please, great white hunter, enlighten me further.
