    Well, after seeing this huge 12 pointer last year during the rut in my backyard, I decided to put up a trail cam this year to see if this guy made it. Unfortunately I live within city limits, if I would have been anywhere else I would have put an arrow through him. Having this buck at 20 yards was something. Even though I couldn't shoot him, it was a blessing to just see a deer of this caliber. This is the biggest deer I have ever seen!

    About a week ago I thew out some Sugar Beat Crush on the fallen log, the deer have been hammering it!
    I also put out some Monster Raxx out about a month ago, just out of frame of the trail cam, but the deer have not touched it.
    So far just some doe coming by.

    Welcome to the site. That is a great buck but to bad you can't go after him. Any luck finding his sheds?
