There are large crop fields and very little cover, so a learning curve is an understatement. The first camera pull we had 2 deer over 170 on camera and several really good ones. My son named this buck droopy and he never left the farm I finally caught up to him 12/10/2017 , he is by far the best buck I have taken with my bow taxidermist aged him 6 1/2, and scored 163 3/8 as is. We estimated him to be in the mid 170s before he was broken up.
Congrats wade!! Super excited for ya!!
