Very nice deer indeed, I was just a little upset when I seen him after velvet Or else I would have taken him in a heartbeat.
I passed up a busted up buck last weekend as well so I can't blame you. he was 3.5, big ole body....but it was a little early for me to shoot a busted up mature deer. Maybe i'll regret it later in the year when i'm eating tag soup, but that's hunting.
He was 1 we had on camera this yr.and last and must have been hit by a car or something, cause left side was messed up last yr. ?
Anyways he came out and offered me a shot at any given time from 21-30 yrds. for 10-15 mins. but didn't shoot because his left side looks like he lost everything but his browtine
Last night the Son seen a brute behind the house and a nice 8pt he said one of them snort weezed and the brute chased the smaller one away, so tonight i'm taking the buck decoy and see what happens.
