    tell you what, I am in no rush to pull the trigger on the first buck of the season, but despite of the very many bucks I've shot, the first of the season usually provokes a touch of the shakes...I love it, reminds me it's still exciting!

    If not under pressure to bring down numbers I refuse to shoot them in velvet, seems such a waste.
    Dosnt bother me anyone else doing it, just something I personally don't like.
    And they won't start to clean up here for a wee while yet.

    Agree 100% who would want to shoot bucks in velvet unless
    absolutely necessary, though I have seen a couple clean.
    (still far to light)

    I'm not sure it makes much difference to the buck itself. Really the only reason we leave them until they're out of velvet is because of our own appreciation of the aesthetic.

    This is a bit like the thread around shooting does in March, with there being arguments (or at least opinions) on both sides.
    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Ha no. To be honest, I wouldn't mind as it is supposed to be good. I like to get the bucks shot early in my neck of the woods in North Yorkshire as there are a few poachers about.
