    well my top two hist list deer are dead. double throat patch the legend of a doe, I shared on having the opportunity to take her a few weeks back. Then tonight her boy, homeboy who is also a double throat patch went down, my dad took him out tonight. here are some pictures, I have his match set of sheds from 2013, he didn't grow hardly an inch more from 3-4. But he is the ultimate trophy this deer has lived almost exclusively on our property his whole life. its neat to see him down. great body size on him!

    That's pretty cool, you guys are having a pretty good season it seems. Congratulations


    Was kinda funny reading about your dad standing in a hole you dug, cant tell you how many times my grandpa has told me to do that. Guess it does really work ha ha.

    I like the double throat patch. I think that is a pretty cool trait. Don't whack all of em with it so you can bag another one next year!
