Black to Play 6-5

Should I be pulling back guys out, or work on filling the 1 point?

I think you can afford to stay back for one roll. you´re a favourite to get one man off in 6 rolls whereas white looks like he will need another 8.

I would stay. Your gammon danger after 7/1 8/3 looks very small, and you'll be very happy you stayed if he rolls 4-1 or 1-1 or 4-4.
