    This is the second year that I will be hunting a deer I named Goliath. I had one encounter with him last year but he busted me at 33 yards. I guestimated him as a 150's class main frame 8 with a split G2 on his left side, some kickers off of his brows and two nubs that started to form drop tines.

    Fast forward to this year.... I don't really have the words to describe what he turned into or what he might score...

    I would probably not even discuss the location you hunt with God.

    Wow, that's all I can say. Best of luck. Can't believe you have daytime anything of him. You would figure as big as he is that he would just move at night....

    I can't believe it, that's the same buck I'm hunting. We have a dozen hunters here chasing him.

    The crazy thing about this buck is that I got permission to hunt this undisclosed location just a few weeks prior to the season last year. I set out cameras and all that was showing up were does. I had a nice buck on another property so I decided to come out to this undisclosed location and shoot a doe early season. I get out there, doe comes in, and I shoot her. I go looking for her but can't find her. I pulled the camera card thinking maybe I got the shot on trail camera because I shot her when she was in front of it. The shot wasn't on camera but Goliath was! I ended up making him nocturnal when I went searching for that doe. It just goes to show that we think we have everything figured out and everything planned perfectly and then we find out that we don't. I just tell people now that I planned it all this way :)
