He wasn't chasing, I've seen no real chasing while hunting this year. Some young bucks messing with does but thats it. I've seen some real deal rutting from the truck but for whatever reason I don't think our does have come in heat yet.

We butchered it ourselves, didn't have scales but he was big. My buddy who did most of the butchering worked at Fischers for a dozen years and he said it was one of the biggest bodied deer he has done.

He truly grew when I walked up on him. I didn't think he was that big.
