Default Monster LF Milam cty rifle kill. 228”

Here is a buck my friend shot this year with a rifle. He had pics of him but never at a feeder. They saw him while bow hunting, but the buck never gave them a shot opportunity. What a beautiful buck!

They tried archery first. But the neighbors have a feeder close by, so he went to rifle since the buck never presented good archery opportunities.

There’s a high fence place right between gause and Milano called beaver creek ranch. We had a lease next to it years ago and a flood washed out part of the fence and we had some big deer get off of that place onto ours. Wonder if that could be offspring from that

There's another high fence up by Port Sullivan that several years ago poachers cut the fence and several bucks got out before it was fixed. Now they only run exotics.

Milam County is one of the best kept secrets in the state. I've seen some incredible bucks killed by the Little River and the Brazos River. If we would just let them grow, we'd all have nice bucks.

Congrats to the hunter, Tye. That's an incredible specimen.
