This is a deer I first noticed in 2015, he is pictured in my first post in this thread with the split left ear. That picture was from 2019 and I hunted him hard that year, I believe he was 3 or 4 years old in 2015 when I noticed him. He has always had at least 11 points, but from 2015 to 2017 he completely snapped a main beam from fighting before bow season even started so I always held off on him. His best year antler wise was 2018 and the photos shown below. He stayed intact for a couple weeks into season, but he never presented a shot, then one day he came in and just with past years had busted his right main beam just past his G2. I let him walk and he came back with less length and tines, but I still wanted a crack at him, but was also hunting another deer at the time. Last year I saw him on camera briefly before season but he went MIA and never saw him again.

These pics are from what I think were his best year in 2018.

A deer I named OCB, Orange County Bruiser. Chased him for several years. Dang gun hunter got him chasing a doe. I was able to score him, he did not score as well as I thought he would. Still a nice buck.

lol tell me about it. I've seen some crazy stuff in the deer woods.

And that is a Lazyman Jaba Hutt fiberglass blind on a 3' platform. There's an old tram that runs thru the woods that my blind sits behind. I built the platform where my shooting windows allow me to just barely see over the tram and shoot to the feed pile... this also allows me to sneak in and out of the blind if deer are at the feed. They can't see me coming or going.

One thing I have figured out from this thread is due to an abundance of information on Nacogdoches County I am going to find out where a certain 12 acre tract is located. Then when I find it I am going talk to all the surrounding neighbors and ask them to name their price.

Our biggest buck weíve had on cam in Freestone County couple years back. We never got him. Took the best daytime pics I got of him from the same cam/feeder and photoshopped them all in one to see him from different angles.

Ha! I wasn’t meaning to trick anyone. But now I might have to in the future. I did the photoshop originally to show my dad and brother the different angles of the buck if they were to see him on the hoof. I sent them screenshots of this pic for reference when they went out on the property

If that trail can pick doesnít get you excited, itís time to put the bow/rifle down and find another hobby!

Thatís an AWESOME assortment of bucks!

Awesome deer, especially for late season. Most of the guys I hunt with are burnt out by that time, but I keep trying to tell them that's one of the best times to kill an older deer around here, especially if its really cold. They can't stay out of the green plots or hand corn.... not to mention those yearlings/fawns are coming into heat for the first time and those older bucks can't stand it.

I wish we could start a hair later so we could run muzzy season out a bit. Those hard north winds bring cold air with some sleet have dropped some deer for us over the years.

It was like when the surf gets flat. Day after a hard front you need to call in sick and get in the stand!!

I was looking back thru old buck pics and came across this pic. I laughed out loud. I had been taking Jesse and David hunting. Both had killed does and David had killed an old cull 7pt. End of late youth season Jesse whacked this mature 8. Look at David's face. He was not pleased!
