I thought he was long gone.Week6 Three 900“Last year I figured this buck was an outsider looking to move in on some local does, however, as you can see, he is back and bigger than ever! From what I can tell, he is now sporting 13, maybe 14 points. This buck has awesome character for our area, and check out that crazy left brow tine! I hope to harvest this buck during archery season, before the rut is in full swing.”
