Here are a few more bucks found in my favorite buck territory.
I got him last night. He was in good light, found at about 1 in the afternoon, wandering around looking for a date.
8 points and a low rise to the rack. I think it means he's "gangsta".
Another 8 pointer. He's got a lot of height which makes him king in his territory.
Another 8 pointer. He's got a nice and square shape to his crown.
Now for an observation. I barely spotted a buck in this tree line. He is waaay...out there but I did take a few reference shots.
Can you see him?
How about now? Do you see what I see?
Are you kidding me? Holy hatrack Batman...that rack is HUGE!
Here's another angle...
and another angle...
I have been cruizing this particular area for years and years, and I can tell you that I have seen many a buck in my experience. I have also seen the same bucks year after year after year. I have never seen this one, or have ever seen one with a rack this size anywhere, and we grow them pretty big here in Illinois. There is a reason he is as big as he is, and thats because he is smarter than your average deer, and keeps away from the roads and humans. He stays out of sight! If the hunters know about this bad boy, his days would be numbered if they had anything to do with it. I'm glad I saw him, and of course I want to see him close up, but I won't hold my breathe because he isn't your average deer. Good luck buddy!
