    I had one video of this buck last year and a few pics and a nice video of him this year. I knew he was in the area but didn't have enough info to figure out his bedding or his core area.

    Just got a pic of him Saturday. The story is that my neighbor found him shot and the boy in the pic got the skull plate off of him. The game warden was notified and put a tag on it of 11/25 which is prior to our gun season. Im hoping that it was a bad bow shot but I am suspecting it was a poacher. If I shot that buck, I would be at every neighbors house around. Just thought I would share.

    Why do people have to make a huge rack look stupid by holding it at arms length?

    Awesome rack!

    I did get ahold of the guy holding the rack and got him the pics and videos I had of him. He said he was going to get him mounted so I thought it would be nice to have some sort of story with it.

    I was really curious of the age of the buck but they guy who I talked to about it said the property owner already took the skull plate out. From a couple of pics I had, he looked pretty old.
