It’s time for another installment of our favorite hypothetical trigger pulling game, Shoot or Don’t Shoot! The rules of the game? Simple. Just take a look at the photos and information below, then vote in the poll telling us whether or not you’d shoot this deer if a shot opportunity was presented during the season. Then, if you’re so inclined, leave a comment and share a little bit more about your decision process.

Alright, so with that said, our buck today comes from West Central Illinois, specifically Fulton County. This buck was living on some family property a friend of mine hunted down there, which holds a very strong number of mature bucks, including many “trophy” quality deer. From this same camera location, several larger racked bucks were photographed.

So what would you do? If you were hunting this property in Illinois and this buck walked by on a calm, cool November morning – what would your decision be? Shoot or don’t shoot?
