The earliest pics I can come up with start in 2014 but my neighbor’s trying to find some pics he has from 2012 he says is him. I’m hoping to send it off to be aged. Here are pics from 2014, 2015, 2106, 2017,& 2018 in order.

    Great buck and I really like the history behind him.

  4. He’s lived on my neighbors property his whole life. He’s hunted him the last 5 years and had more close calls with him than he can count. This was the first time I ever saw him on hoof. He told me he was sad to see him go but glad he could finally quit losing sleep over him. Last year his step-son killed a wide 10 with white feet I called socks that I had hunted for 4 years. I’m blessed with good people around me that are genuinely happy for each other when we kill deer.
