    Congratulations! Y’all got crazy big deer. A buck like that here in the mountains would be a dandy.

    @Cameron Thanks! They do seem to get bigger up North. I still think he is a beauty but I would assume he’s probably only 3.5 years old. Sometimes you just have to take what’s given. I have what would be considered a wide shooting lane at 80 yards. When the bucks come across you get about 15 seconds. I tried grunting at this guy and he didn’t even look

    No issues with that guy on the road that messed things up last year, huh? Is my memory serving me right?

    @Chris I was killing time waiting for my wife to finish feeding my daughter. I wanted her to see the deer before I opened it up 😂
