I don't have any real monsters yet. One good 3 year old, and one 4 or 5 year old that I'll shoot but he's mediocre at best. I have a couple that made it through the season that I've not gotten pics of yet.
Looks like theres another wide 8 in my future ?
Theres also a 11,10 and 9 pointer just as big but just a little narrower. Them and a few more are hanging in my neighborhood spots. Every spot has big bucks. I expect its like that all around 285 ?
I've been corn feeding this one for several months fattening him up.
Looks like he'll have a real skinny rack ?
What will he score ???? My guess 135 net ?
Have history with all three of these. The 8 in the first picture was seen by both myself and my dad last year. Dad had him around his stand for 30 minutes last October. I am pretty sure the 11 is another deer I played cat and mouse with a couple times last year. The funky rack buck was a deer I was really after last year. He had a huge dagger on that side at the time. This year it has morphed into what almost looks like a double beam.. Can't quite tell.
I got bucks this size coming out my ears. I know there are some bigger around, but nothing has shown. I know the one buck missing brows is 4.5...and I need to see one of the bucks drinking from the water to know how big he's gonna be...but nothing that makes my heart race yet.
I’m after the buck that eluded my son and I in a high gap and associated bench in the CNF in Fannin county. Nothing to brag about horn wise but he is a ridge runner that lives in some of the highest loneliest deer country in the state. Either him or the first racked buck that shows up.
As an aside I predict some real top end deer this year since all this rain has the range in great shape.
