    Hope you get another crack at him if you decide to take him or a better one!

    Video is crap! I didn't pick the camera up this time until I decided in N. MO he needed another year for me personally.
    In parts of the country this guy would be a giant. Sometimes I hesitate to share, but figure everyone like deer pics :)

    Nothing special at my farm except geography. 150 yards rifle season. I was zoomed in trying to follow him, so yes, again the video is crap!

    Don't hesitate. Was he headed northeast by chance? Maybe he will make it to my place by Saturday :emoji_thinking:

    Bill - In Pa., a buck like that wouldn't even be a question. 99.99% would pull the trigger on him - and I'd be in the 99%. It would be a RARE opportunity to see one better than that here.

    Thanks for sharing the video !!

    There's not a ton better here but there are some that squeak by. Just helped the neighbors hunters load two up. Both were in the 120 to 125 inch range. Don't know why I'm passing on these guys but I just want to try and see if someone will make it. What's the old saying, you can't control anything but yourself. Pretty disheartening but I figure it's only a one season to experiment.

    I now pass on smaller bucks here myself, Bill. If given a shot at a legal " handful " sized rack or passing him up for another year of growth (hopefully) - I'll pass. It's my own opinion, but I'd rather shoot a 18" to 20" spread 120" buck than a legal (points-wise) 70" to 80" buck. Other camp members will shoot those smaller bucks. It's just MY choice at this stage of my hunting career.

    Good luck growing him bigger, Bill. Your odds are better where you hunt.
