My dad and I have had a very long history chasing this buck. Started 2 years ago as a decent 8 then last year he turned into a solid main frame 10 with some kickers around his bases. We ended up finding his left shed from last year and rough scored him around 150. This year I have had 2 encounters with him during bow season but couldn’t make it happen. Was sitting with my grandpa all day and 4 o’clock rolled around and the woods broke loose him and 12 other deer came running in from the swamp and I knew exactly who he was when I saw him. Ended up stopping him at 60 yards and couldn’t of made a better shot. Tagged out and time to start prepping for next season. One for the books!
