Do you drop the hammer or pass?

If I lived out closer to the unit where I could spend a lot of time scouting. I would hope to have a couple a little bigger than that on my hit list but because of how far it is out there from my house, I'll stick with a closer unit.
I'd be looking for a solid 180"+ buck and I think that buck falls just a little short but I could be wrong. I know I have been in the past.

How big do you think that buck is elk?
Why don't you throw out some numbers elk?

I Hunt one of the Over Hunted/Poorest Quality/Toughest General Units there is anywhere in the State!

The Buck Might be a little Shy of 180" & I Don't Care!

Just Sayin:

You Let that Buck Walk on the Crack of Daylight In the Book Cliffs Opening Morning & I'll Guarantee You,You Screwed Up!

Crap, I thought there could be something wrong with me. It was still early in the hunt when I seen him, with fresh snow moving bucks around. He was even in range at about 300 yards. I didn't get a buck that year either.

At a quick glance I would guess him at about 28 or 29 inches wide and 177 to 179 gross score.
I would hope he would stop and give me a good look from the front. I am sure I would definitely be setting up and getting the crosshairs on him if he was within range. May or may not pull the trigger depending on where I was hunting and what the conditions were at the time.

I would stop that buck with a well-timed fart before dropping the hammer. 300 yards away you say? Don't underestimate my flatulence.

Main beam looks a little short to me.. The rest looks decent. If it was the first day or two of the hunt I would certainly let him go.

He's a great straight 4. I've got several of those. If it's a good tag I'd hold out for better or unique. If its general season tag you can get every year, he goes home with me and joins the others....

Videos can be kind of tricky but I think it depends on circumstances. A general season or LE, Last day, first day etc.
He is a very solid buck but he is not a drop the hammer no question asked on some hunts.

I believe he is a mid 170s type buck. General season id prob whack him no question. Unless I had a considerably better buck I knew of and still had plenty of Hunt left.

Henry mountains or Arizona strip opening day thru midweek he probabaly lives.

Great buck Very few circumstances Id pass on him.

I think that buck would grow on you as you walked up on him! Could be mid 170's but wouldn't be surprised if he grossed mid 180's. Hoss body, and if he has eyeguards he is a no doubter in my book.

I think the main issue here is the OPs question was if you only had 18 seconds what would you do.
I have been on some hunts that started to take quite a few days and not seeing a shooter and in those circumstances I probably would not hesitate to shoot a buck of that quality if I had the chance. Especially if there was only 18 seconds to make up my mind.
I have applied for a Gunnison fourth season tag this year and I have a very good chance to draw it. I think if I see a buck like that I have an opportunity to take him I probably will try.
Its kind of sad to say but that really is a modern day big buck. From all of the reports Ive gotten on the Gunnison that would probably be a top end buck there nowadays
Nice buck Brian if you got that good of a video shot on him Im sure you could have killed him with your rifle.

I'd pass that buck. I'm never big on judging a buck from behind. Nice buck, no doubt and I'd likely tag him if it were the last day and I hadn't located a better deer. I think he's closer to 170 IMO....

In an easy to draw Unit, 'bang' first day.

When I cashed in 14 PP in Colorado, I would have taken him later in the hunt, but not the first couple of days.

My goal was 190" or better, and I came home empty, after passing up 150's almost every day, and 170's a couple of times.

I think maybe he's a little better than some are saying? Lows 180's maybe. A nice buck for sure. I'd likely take him and just deal with the score shaming that's certain to follow from the IG/Kuiu/Flatbrimmer crowd who think he doesn't measure up to their expectations or inches standards.

Just a great looking buck. That's all I need. It'd never see a tape, so that stuff is irrelevant.

As a lot of others have said, depends on if it was early in the hunt or late. In Nevada, if I have a tag that has snow on the ground like that, I'm probably hunting a late season tag, and I would keep looking for a few days.

Buckhorn is right on the nuts sizing him up. My gut tells me he would get a hall pass if I were behind the trigger. Ive become weary of dropping the hammer on bucks that dont stand out to ME as extraordinary in this situation BUUUT if he did hit the snow on accident Im sure hed be just as tasty!!

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high, keep your eyes fixed to where the trail meets the sky...

18 seconds...not enough time to judge, range, get set, shoot, even without that stinking tree. But hey... I'm just a mere mortal.

If it's a general type tag, maybe shoot, he looks plenty old.
If I spent more than a point, pass.
