Default Harvested my best buck yet this weekend!

23 1/2” wide 8 point. (Did not know they got this wide in our part of the country) Aged him at 5 years old. Waiting for the taxi to text me the score, what is your guess on score? Haven’t seen this guy on the trail cams before. This is my personal best, and the widest deer we have ever seen on this place and this is our fifteenth season here. I am a VERY happy hunter! This hunt was hands down the single best hunt I have ever had! There were 4 does at the feeder then a 2 year old broke up 8 point starts pushing them around and grunting like crazy! (I Have video of him grunting, I don’t know how to post a video) He leaves with one of the does. Now we have 3 does and a spike comes and starts pushing the does around, then he leaves and a 4 point comes and starts pushing the does around then this guys starts grunting and the 4 point makes his way somewhere else in a hurry! At this point I haven’t seen him yet only heard the grunts. Then a little while later I see him through the brush and I know immediately he is a shooter buck, the does head off to the right and he follows. He cleared the brush, in a hurry after the does and then he stopped for some reason, me and my 25-06 were ready, He made it about 12 yards!
