To get the blood flowing correctly after yesterday, i figured this would be a fun offseason thread.
Lets see some pictures of bucks that you "almost" got. We all have demons in our closet, some more then others (me). Ive had the fortune of hunting the same general ground for 8 season now, and with multiple trail cameras out ive always had my eye on a buck or two.
Ill start with my first true target:
Rumor has it he was killed in shotgun season that year. I never saw him on foot and never really had a chance. But he was a MONSTER.
My second obsession was this guy:
I only saw him during the summer. No rumors ever popped up of a droptine being killed int he area. Disappeared.
We all know how that ended.
This guy was a main target for a year as well, but he got shot and killed:
And our current main target:
those are some awesome bucks!

Nothing that compares to your pictures but in my one year of hunting my land land this is the biggest buck I've laid my own eyes on. I was actually hunting with my son here when this picture was taken but he was too far out.
There is no off-season to crossbow hunting.
Beer is proof God loves us
Wow. Those are some great bucks. Ill be out this fall to hunt with you and your brothers. Okay? Okay lol
Excuse the dates, I never set them on my camera.
This was a buck I was hunting in 2011. He kept showing up over a mock scrape I made, usually while I was working.
I named him that because he was the most vocal deer I've ever hunted. Never got him with in range, and didn't see him again after that season.
I didn't name this guy but did get several pics of him. Missed him with my ML when he was nudging a doe at 85 yards. Not one of my proudest moments. He got hit by a car a couple of weeks later.
Here's one I want bad this year. Named him Flare.
Great thread Caleb! I'll post up tonight from my home comp.

great thread... didnt really start using tril cams until 2010 and i was able to harvest my buck
2011 was this good 8 pointer got pictures of him during the summer and rumor has that he got shot on the north side of the property during the rut
2012 last year had two bucks. the first one was a main frame 10pt with a kicker coming of his G3 was able to chase after him for 4 days straight and my ex was able to put a arrow in him but as luck would have it it was to high abouve the spine and non leathal
then the second buck was a nice 10pt got pictures of him all summer long then no idea where he went
As far as i know no one shot the two from last year
