Bowhunting whitetails is quite the challenge in itself. When one decides to bowhunt mature bucks, that challenge is escalated to a much more difficult level. And then there are the ones that make the progression to hunting specific bucks. This is taking it to an entirely new level of hard. I've tried it, successfully and unsuccessfully, and let me tell you, the feat is not easy, nor will it ever be. There are benefits of hunting a specific buck, and then there are the ensuing disadvantages as well. How do you know if you're ready to start targeting a specific buck? Consider these few pros and cons that I've come up with in the experience I have doing so, and maybe they can help you consider what option is for you.
