Biggest buck ever!

Biggest buck ever!

I had called Dad mid-week to check in and he told me that we had a big buck by the Sky Condo

One of the 8’s? I eagerly asked

No. Bigger


If I could have driven up that night, I would have.  But I had to wait until Friday to put the memory cards into the computer and look at what Dad was talking about.  This is, BY FAR, the thickest deer we have ever seen on the camera.  He is clearly all rutted up because he has no neck!  It also looks like his E2 is broken on his right side.  He was on the camera a handful of times over the past week.

I am ready to put in some time Wed, Thursday, Friday and Saturday in hopes that one of us will get a crack at this big guy.
