    Really fun to see him get this buck, the rack was nice, the body was huge. Guessing 210-215 field dressed ?

    November 2, late afternoon. We had several trail cam pics of this buck. A key factor was freshly planted alfalfa/clover and we leave a sanctuary of 20 acres on our 40. He was staying pretty close due to the food and privacy!!

    Nice buck, congrats. Your boys definitely get the job done.
    There's a whole lot of hunters out there that just don't grasp the importance of leaving the deer a place to live without intrusion. Especially on small parcels. It makes all the difference in the world.
