Default Got It Done On a Ranch Legend!

This deer has been one of our most known since the first time I saw him back in 2017. Always had a huge frame and was a buck that everyone loved to see. Just had that wow factor.

He was 9 years old this year and in his prime. He is not one of the highest scoring deer we have taken, but I am as proud of this deer as any I have killed.

156 4/8” Duval County Low Fence.

Inches wise, yes this was probably his best year. At 6 and 7 his tine length was maybe a little better but less mass and less points. He has never been a 10 pt until is year. Was a slick 8 at 4 yrs old and then a slick 9 at 5, 6 and 7. He rutted hard at 7 and as a result went downhill last year as an 8 yr old and was an 8 pt with two small kickers. I will try to put together some age progression pics when I get some time.
