Default A few pics of the non typical buck

I went out to camp to re aim my Spartan cam towards the trough. I checked my camera on the other side of the trough while I was there. This deer made a huge leap from last year and is better than I thought he was off the pics I posted earlier. I swear I was giddy with laughter when these pics popped up on the puter monitor:

Is that a free range deer? Not that it matters but that is a world class buck.

Only had him on camera last year and now today. Here are some pics after shedding velvet last year. He's never been to either of our protein feeders.

Yeah there's a big high fence not far from us. They have had bucks get out a couple different times. We've had funky racks on our place since I started running cameras 10 yrs ago, so no idea where they came from. This buck was killed on a neighboring low fence place 2 yrs ago. A freaking monster deer and confirmed escapee:

Only thing that hurts us is property size and lack of does in the area. I feed'em all summer and they vaporize every September.

What an awesome deer, hope you get a chance at him.

I feel your pain on the small pasture part. I hunt 450 acres that is comprised of 110 acrested of corn. It draws in a great many deer and some always leave around September. I've had a great looking 11 point for the past two years. Hoping he sticks around this year.

I have yet to figure out how to keep these bucks around come October. I think no one around us feeds like we do and they just gravitate to our place every summer. It's the same story every year. Some of these bucks will be at our protein feeders multiple times daily all summer long. I can't tell you the number of bucks I've had shed velvet and completely disappear over the years. In some cases the last picture I got was "bloody" horns right after shedding velvet. They're on that water trough heavy right now, but let us get an inch rain and put a few puddles in the rocky creek bottom and it's like they don't know that trough exist. Hey, but that's why they call it hunting! My uncle asks me every now and then, "You ever get tired of feeding them boys and never seeing them during season?" Truth is I don't mind at all. I've grown to enjoy the process a lot more than the result over the years. I love filling feeders, running cameras, doing food plots, all of it. Tickles me to death to see how good these deer have gotten over the last decade. I work my tail off out there sometimes, but truth is I could scout more and hunt harder. As the saying goes, I guess I just ain't that mad at them anymore. Lol. I suspect one of these days one them hoss bucks is gonna slip and let me hang a tag on'em. I got time. :-)

I have come back to this thread multiple times to look at this deer. He is just incredible. I remember you posting about him from last year but he is in another class this year. I wouldn't begin to know what he scores and it doesn't matter. On a deer like that, shoot first and ask questions later. Good luck and I hope he sticks around for you this year.

I know the feeling. My target bucks took off last year too. I didn't feed protein past October so this year I plan of keeping the protein feeders full year round and just cover the tubes with empty feed sacks when I hunt. Last year I had pretty good results mixing corn and protein 50-50 for hand corning. Seems I saw more deer at the 50-50 sights than plan corn but like I said, my target bucks were gone by then.

I agree! :-)

I hear folks talking about deer "blowing up" from time to time. I was shocked at the leap he made over last year.
