Default Not a single pic!

One of our day hunters shot this deer last weekend on our place in Castroville. With all the green growth and acorns this deer still came to a feeder like hed been coming every day. We have no history with this deer that we know of, not one pic of a deer vaguely resembling him in past years. In just over a thousand acre high fence youd think a camera or a hunter would have seen him at some point. Goes to show how elusive they can be!

Looks like Santa Claus always gets the good deer
I tell him every year that’s what I want for Christmas
But he never listens

I have family with a High fence place and every year it seems someone finds a buck that has never been pictured or seen. As you said. VERY elusive.

That is very odd that he has been able to stay under the radar for so long. Guess it goes to show that there could always be something out there that the game cams dont show. Thats a heck of a deer.

I can say all of the big deer, 150 and over that have been killed on the lease I hunt, to my knowledge have not been caught on trailcam before they were killed.

See even high fenced deer can hide from cameras, and y'all don't think black panthers exist in East Texas.
