    I have hunted this deer for three years, but I've never seen him. Someone else shot him last year. Anyone else have multiple years of the same deer?

    I've got a nice 12-pointer which roams around my area, been seeing him four years now. My Neighbor's Grandson has also seen & tried to bag him for about five years now, both of us have been unsuccessful. When rifle season comes-in this Buck always disappears, but one season, couple years ago, I saw him during our 2-day early M/L season.

    I'd like to have seen him after he finished out that last year.

    I found both sheds from a buck in '03, found both sides again from the same buck in '04, and ended up killing the deer in '05!

    At least you get the same deer multiple years. I'll get a nice one once and never lay eyes on him again.

    I had a 170 class I followed but was killed last year during rifle season. It's ruff hearing that a buck you've chased after was bagged

    I also had a buck for 4 years straight An 8pt first 2 yrs, then he was a 9, and the last year back to an 8. He never grew much more length but his mass was awesome.
    I ended up killing the deer on sept 12 2007.

    I had a buck with a crab claw on camera for four years. I missed him in 2013 as a 3 year old in late muzzleloading season. In 2014, I got to my stand a bit after light one late October morning. He and I locked eyes on each other right as I got to the stand. He walked out in the middle of the field and stared at me. If I had a bolt loaded, I could have shot him at 40 yards. He went back to the edge of the field working a scrape and snort wheezing for a brief period of time. He walked into the woods, and I climbed into the stand. I snort wheezed with my grunt tube and he came back out in the field. After a few seconds, he then slid into the woods never to be seen again.

    I have a real nice 8 on camera for 2 years straight I hope I see him. But really every year are different deer but I hunt in areas where folks eliminate bucks until they get to a bragging one.

    I hunted a big 9 for 5 years till I lost the farm he was on . Last pics was at 8 years old prolly dressed 200+ and 145".
    I suppose he died of old age. Never saw him one time in the daylight . But he was 30 yards from me before daylight when he was 4 years old I got pics to prove it.
